I am big on intentionality and I think making a list helps me do that. I won’t beat myself up if I don’t do all of these things but I do think it will help me to squeeze the most out of the season. I am sad and feel sad sometimes, as I am sure you do, too. I can’t believe my kids are out of the nest-ish and that makes me sad. I am sad about Covid and what it means to life as we know it. I am sad about many other things I see on the news.
But, I think everyday should contain a tiny bit of happiness. This list might help me grab what I can and it might help you, too.
-Light a fall candle. I have been lighting my apple candles! I got a honeycrisp apple from Trader Joe’s and an apple from Bath and Body. In October I will do pumpkin scented!
-Use my solo stove on the patio with Tom or with friends, too.
-Go to a football game
-Watch a football game on the patio and possibly eat chili while doing so.
-Wear all the fall colors! Wear my fall hat that makes me look like a park ranger.
-Drink apple cider and maybe find an apple orchard.
-Drink a PSL! (Pumpkin Spice Latte)
-Make fun fall foods – dish of candy corn and peanuts is one!
-Go to an Oktoberfest
-Go to a fall festival
-Go leaf peeping – hopefully by boat and by car
-Make my apple cider sangria
-Create a new fall cocktail
-Spend time on my patio
-Decorate patio for fall
What am I forgetting?
Happy Fall – almost!
