Ya I know the saying “spring forward, fall back”, but I much prefer to spring into fall with gusto! “Fall back” sounds like reverting back to old bad habits, so let’s not give that notion another thought, shall we?
Although my golf game usually goes down hill like the evening temperatures this time of year doesn’t mean I’m about the put the ole clubs away and resign myself to couch potato-dom – nay nay I say! It’s a perfect time of year to get out into the fresh air, play a round pulling your cart and enjoying the changing leaves. I can’t find my ball in them which gives me good reason to drop one and forge on. Fore!
Speaking of fresh I had a fulfilling stroll through the produce section of the grocery store the other day. Yes my inner “hibernating bear” has emerged needing to get ready for the coming seasons. It’s a fine time to make a chilli, a tomato eggplant sauce or drop an old boot in a cauldron and make some soup! I can hear my nephew now say “…more soup Sassy!”
There’re still ears of corn to peel, plums to pick and nectarines to nosh on. I can see an apple crisp with cranberries on the horizon with vanilla ice cream is in my future some weekend soon. Maybe some hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick to enjoy when I do the first lighting of the fireplace with the flick of a switch. Add those ingredients to my standing grocery list. Gotta love the changing of the wardrobe too, to snuggy cable knit sweaters, cords and velvets, not to mention fashion forward boots.
Ahhhh fall, a season worth springing into. Bring it on! What’s not to love?
