Fall is my favorite season. I just love it when the weather finally cools down, those fall breezes start beckoning you to leave your windows open, and the baking bug that died down a bit in the heat of the summer returns with a vengeance. And for some reason I am in the mood to do crafts during the fall. I have spent quite a bit of time finding new and exciting crafts to do and finding a few new and exciting craft blogs as well, like an Irish Craftworker.
I also love the colors of fall. I have already spent way too much money on fall decor in those beautiful earthy browns and oranges. I am growing some pumpkins and squash in my backyard but I know I will also be picking up a ton of pumpkins to decorate with very soon. I just LOVE having lots of pumpkins around the house this time of year. And they are super yummy too. Time to dig out the recipe for Organic Pumpkin Soup.
I also have a guilty confession to make though. Fall is just not the same in Arizona as it is back east in Ohio, so I have been feeling a little down about Fall this year. So….my non eco-friendly weakness (travel) rears its ugly head. I will be taking the kiddos to Ohio for a week in mid October so that we can enjoy a real fall for a few days. I have already planned to take them apple picking at a nearby orchard, where they can pick their own apples, get homemade Amish pies, take hayrides, and ride horseback. And of course my biggest thrill will be to just sit on my porch in Ohio again, enjoying the cool breeze, and the changing of the leaves. Ahhh…I can hardly wait because this girl is all about Fall.
