Autumn Bucket List 2022

With summer's end so ended the record high heat that has been plaguing us for days. Yesterday it was 100 degrees; today it's cool and rainy. Suddenly, my favorite season is upon all her glory has returned! Warm days, chilly evenings, falling leaves, bonfires, and all things pumpkin spice! How nice! ๐Ÿ

I've been thinking about some of the things that I would like to do this fall. I know that I won't get to all of them, but at least this list will help me to stay focused on the season and, hopefully, enjoy it to the fullest. Won't you join me as I dream? ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:22).

  1. I always enjoy reading your fall bucket list items. Lots of great ideas! Maybe I'll borrow a few, always wanted to try and make a pumpkin roll. My mom used to make them and I know they were one of my older brother's favorites. Hope you get to cross many items off this list!

    1. Thanks, Jean, and, yes, feel free to borrow away! I'm looking forward to reading your list, too! Pumpkin rolls are really quite easy and can be whipped up in no time. They have always been a family here, too! Blessings for a beautiful autumn! Am so glad that the weather has finally cooled down. Now, if we can just get enough rain to do us some good. We are still so dry down here on the prairie.

  2. I LOVE your list. I LOVE even more that you're realistic that you may not get to all of it. I made a list also and look forward to joing you in crossing off the accomplishments. Happy FALL!
