Fall Bucket List 2020 Update

Today is the last full day of Fall 2020 and I can't believe that the season has already come and gone. It fairly flew by and I didn't get to nearly as many things on my list as I would like to have, but since it's been a weird year all the way around, I'm not going to worry about it. I'm just going to be happy with the memories made and  move on from where I'm at. 

I did get some lovely photos throughout the season, so I will be disbursing some of those throughout this post and any notes or comments about specific items will follow in italics and parenthesis.

My Autumn Bucket List 2020

1. Write my autumn bucket list
2. Plan my autumn menus (this will be done weekly through my Master List and Menu Plan Monday posts) 
3. Celebrate autumn birthdays with the grandlittles 🎂

(We didn't handle birthdays this year like we normally do. We did continue to give cards with $$$ in them, but, with all the stuff surrounding COVID, I chose not to take the grandchildren out for lunch this year. Instead, I just took the ones that wanted to up to Casey's to get a treat, then to the park to sit and visit one-on-one for awhile. The oldest and I did meet for breakfast at the local café and, for the ones that live further out, Papa and I just picked up treats at Casey's and went out to their place to visit. Most of the grandchildren were happy enough with this arrangement. It looks like this trend will carry on over into 2021.)
