All Things Autumn Tag

Earlier in the month my friend, Jean, over at Chit Chat with Jean mentioned me in a fun autumn tag. She thought I might enjoy joining in, and she was right! I would and I am finally getting around to doing so! 

1.  What is your favorite thing about fall?

To be honest, I don't know that I can limit my answer to just one thing. I love pretty much EVERYTHING about fall...the sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes! I guess if I had to narrow it down to just one thing, I would have to say NATURE...because that pretty much encompasses it all in one way or another anyway...right? ๐Ÿ˜‰
2.  Do you get fall colors where you live?

Yes! And I love viewing them! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

3.  Favorite fall scent?  (wax melts, candles, anything)

Pumpkin spice and WoodWick brand Fireside candles,  Bath and Body Works Sweater Weather body spray and lotion, and Mrs. Meyers brand fall-scented dish soaps, liquid hand soaps, all-purpose cleaners, and air freshners.

4.  Favorite fall food or drink?

 A Pumpkin Struessel Muffin served with a piping hot cup of tea.

5.  Football . . . yay or nay?

For the most part nay but once in a while it's a yay for the Kansas City Chiefs. ๐Ÿˆ

6.  Do you rake, jump in, or burn piles of leaves?

As a child I enjoyed raking leaves up into a great big pile and jumping in them. Now, I just enjoy them in their natural state strewn about the yard and crunching through them as I walk.

7.  Haunted house or corn maze?

I don't do haunted houses (did as a teenager, but never liked them), but I sure do enjoy getting lost in a good corn maze! ๐ŸŒฝ

8.  Have you ever gone on a hayride?

Yes, practically every year!

9.  Cider or hot chocolate?

Both. Cider when it's still warm outside; hot chocolate when it's cooler...and the cider has to be Louisburg brand or forget it! Most of the time, though, for me, it's just hot tea...every day...year round.

10. Carve a pumpkin or eat pumpkin pie?

Have done both, but much prefer eating pumpkin pie over carving a pumpkin. When I do carve a pumpkin though it's generally not the norm.

11. Do you dress up for Halloween?

Used to, but haven't celebrated Halloween for over 30 years now. Our family prefers to use Halloween as a ministry opportunity when given the chance.

12. Candy corn . . . yay or nay?

Yay, but only purchase one container per year, if that.

13. Favorite Halloween season movie?

I don't do Halloween movies anymore (never did like them), but I do enjoy watching TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and always save it for late October. LUTHER, too, with Joseph Fiennes (for Reformation Day - also celebrated October 31st).

14. Scariest movie?

I don't do scary movies at all anymore, but the movie that freaked me out the most as a child (silly as it is) was CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. In fact, it scarred me for life! To this day I cannot handle looking down into dark murky water. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

15. Halloween or Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving for sure! ๐Ÿฆƒ

16. Do you watch the Macy's parade?


17. Apple pie or pumpkin pie?

Both. Apple pie anytime; pumpkin pie in the fall...especially around Thanksgiving.

18. White or dark meat?

I prefer white, but don't mind thigh meat, either. 

19. Jellied or real cranberry sauce?

Either one. Grew up with jellied, but the real deal is good, too. 

20. Will you host or travel for Thanksgiving?

Travel. Wheather far away, or close by, I usually spend Thanksgiving with family and friends elsewhere. 

I enjoyed answering these questions and would like to invite you to join in the fun, too! If you choose to do so, please, share your answers below or leave a link so that I can read and enjoy your answers, as you have read mine!
