Our Autumn List

One of our family traits that has been passed down is list making. My mother used to make lists upon lists, she said it was so satisfying to cross things off. My sisters and daughters like to circulate lists via email to each other of our "favorites". I guess we love to daydream about those list items and what they mean to us and it gets us excited for whatever we are listing! Our list for this past week is "What we Love about Autumn". I'm sure there are others that share the same favorites that are on our list... what's not to like? 
Here is our inventory so far:

cooler weather
leaves turning color
warm drinks from Starbucks
fires on the patio
snuggling by that fire
cider garnished with a cinnamon stick
trips to the pumpkin patch
hearty soups & stews
geese flying overhead
pumpkin bread
autumn candles burning
windows open
chili cooking on the stove & NFL football on the tv on a Sunday afternoon
making apple butter
mums in every color
gray skies and brilliant yellow trees
anticipation of the holidays
needing a jacket
no more mosquitos
leaves crunching below your feet
Chex mix
burgundy lips
homemade donuts
cuddling up with a throw

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
with summer's best of weather
and autumn's best of cheer
