Things To Do In The Fall

Fall, that time of year, where everyone is outside enjoying fall activities. The season of where leaves are changing colors, the smells of apple cider and pumpkin spice fill the air.

Long nature walks to enjoy and welcome in cooler weather. Watching the squirrels gather their nuts for winter.

Depending on where you live, raking leaves and jumping into them was always a fun fall activity when I was growing up. Well, not the actual raking part.

Opening the doors and windows to let your house air out from being closed up from summer, is always refreshing.

This time of year is where I feel more inspired to bake and break out the crock-pot. With the changing weather, you might be bringing out the light jackets and cozy sweaters.

This is also a good time to slow down, unwind, and enjoy the season. Winter will be here before you know it.

I like to use this time of year to do some heavy outside cleaning. Clean windows, spray cobwebs off the house.

I don’t know about where you live, but the spiders seem to build a lot of webs around here. Oh and don’t forget about planting those fall annuals!

What beautiful hues of colors.

So, I don’t know why Fall brings such nostalgia for me, but It’s my favorite season. I will stop rambling on and on about how Fall makes me feel.

I’m going to share with you about all the Fall activities you can participate in and have fun with your family and friends.
