Thursday Thirteen #20

Thirteen Reasons I Love Autumn!
1. The cool, crisp days.
2. The changing colors of the leaves.
3. The pumpkins are ripening and turning up in the grocery store.
4. It's almost Halloween!
5. Thanksgiving isn't too far away.
6. The movies in the theatre are better.
7. You don't need an excuse to make soup.
8. It's time to put the flannel sheets on the bed.
9. The produce at the grocery store is fresh and colorful.
10. You can curl up with a blanket on a cool day and read a book.
11. It's time to break out the hot chocolate.
12. The days are getting shorter, but I always feel energized in the fall.
13. This is the best holiday season of the year. I mentioned Halloween and Thanksgiving, but Christmas isn't too far away either. :-)

See that's one thing I love about being Canadian, Thanksgiving is in October! My daughter's birthday is also in the fall, so it's a fun time of year for that too.

Great list!!

Tempest Knight said...

Yes, Halloween! Love the month of October. I've already decorated, but it's not until Oct. 1 that I do the official light plugging. Hehehe!

Nicole Austin said...

I wish we had fall here! The leaves don't turn colors in Florida, and hot chocolate is only an option about 2 weeks out of the year. lol!

Lorelei James said...

#7 especially...I made a big ol' pot of vegetable beef this week.

Tink said...

We haven't had much of a summer this year, but the fall is beautiful!
Thanks for visiting my Tink TT.

N.J.Walters said...

Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away, Christine. I can't wait. :-)

I love October too, Tempest. My favorite month of the year. I decorate around the first weekend or so of October. I love the lights. *g*

I can't imagine not having fall, Nic. Although, I could do with a little more heat in the summer.

Sounds yummy, Lorilei. 'Tis the season for soup. I had a big bowl of vegeatable pasta soup yesterday for lunch.

It was the same here, Tink. Not much summer, but I'm looking forward to fall.

Samantha Lucas said...

I love love love fall!

Growing up in Southern California this is a non existent season, but now that I live in Virginia, it's possibly my favorite.

I put the tee shirt sheets on the bed this week. And I baked pumpkin muffins. Mmmm, fall!

N.J.Walters said...

I love fall too, Samantha. I can't imagine not having it.

Pumpkin muffins...yummers. I put the flannel on the bed last week. LOL I hate being cold.

Mechele Armstrong said...

Great list! I love Autumn as well. For a lot of the same reasons.

Lauren Dane said...

Whee, Fall! I love this time of year. Stew, crock pot, baking, mmmm.

Aline de Chevigny said...

Seems to be a recurring theme today LOL.

Great TT


shiloh walker said...

lol... okay, this is a common theme, i see

N.J.Walters said...

Hey, Mechele. It's my favorite season.

Baking and soups. YUM. I don't have a crock pot, Lauren, but I know a lot of folks do. Maybe I should get one....hmmm....

It is Aline and Shiloh. I guess fall is in the air!

Red Garnier said...

I love autumn, too, thanks for reminding me! =)

N.J.Walters said...

Thanks for stopping by, Red. And it's my pleasure. Fall has so much going for it. :-)

Hi, N.J.! *waving* :)

***8. It's time to put the flannel sheets on the bed.

I wish, but it ain't happening in my house. I have a hot night hubby (lol, that didn't sound right) who'd suffocate if I made him sleep on flannel sheets. He likes the cool slickness of cotton sheets, even when it's below zero. In fact, he insists on sleeping with the ceiling fan on and a fan in the [open] window, even when it's freezing outside. Brrr! I shiver all winter long. LOL

Great 13 list. :D Have a good weekend!


N.J.Walters said...

Hey, Titania. Gotta have flannel sheets. My hubby is just as likely to toss all the covers over on my side, which suits me just fine. LOL
