Ten On Tuesday


This week’s Ten On Tuesday theme is 10 Things You Want But Can’t Afford, but I agree with Carole that this is a depressing theme. We’re kind of broke right now, so I’m trying to think about what we have and not what we don’t. The latter is a great big list, but the former is a pretty big list on its own. Broke or not, we’re pretty fortunate around here, so I don’t want to dwell on material goods* that I lust after.

So instead, I’m following Carole’s lead and going, instead, with a theme of 10 Things You Love About Fall:

  1. The crisp weather and chill breezes. I dream about this all through the summer heat.
  2. The glorious colors.
  3. The whirr of wings as geese fly overhead while taking a walk at dusk. It always makes me stop to watch them fly by.
  4. Samhain, which is my second favorite holiday after Mabon.
  5. Apple picking.
  6. The beginning of soup and stew season.
  7. Autumn veggies like butternut squash and broccoli and brussels sprouts.
  8. Pumpkin picking and carving.
  9. The endless amusement I get watching the cats as the wind blows the leaves around outside and they try to leap at them through the window.
  10. The bginning of knits season.

* The number 1 thing on a list of that theme would actually have been unlimited IVF attempts and number two would have been donor eggs, but the rest would have been material things.
