Plan to Celebrate the Autumn Season

Autumn is visiting me and I am making plans to celebrate the season. The leaves are starting to fall from the trees in my hometown. The nights are dipping into the low 50's and the days are no warmer then the mid 50’s. This is an indication that summer has ended and the season called autumn has begun.

This is the time of the year when we start to think about comfort foods rich hearty soups, chili and stews. Pot roast for supper, melt in your mouth popovers,pumpkin pie, and apple crisp

 Autumn is also a time when we participate in outdoor activities with your friends and your family.    Today I went to the Audubon nature center and hiked on the nature trail. The trees along the creek were in peak color. I watched the colorful leaves float in the breeze. It was as if they were slow dancing. 

 The sun was bright and I could feel the warmth upon my face. There was a cool breeze that I felt whenever I walked in the shadows and that is when I thought of pumpkin spiced coffee

At the end of the nature trail, there was a park bench directly next to a sugar maple tree. I sat at a park bench and thought about all of the things that I must do. 

I will make a butternut squash soup for supper, and while it is cooking, I will roast some pumpkin seeds for my family to snack on. 

Then I will run to the craft store and pick up a few items to start my autumn decorations. Run by the farmers market to select some juicy apples for an apple crisp for dessert. I will serve this delicious dessert to my family by the fireplace. I am wondering does autumn get better than this?

I had better get busy, as I have many things to do. Why not make some plans of your own to celebrate the autumn season.
