Autumn Friday Five


Songbird at RevGalBlogPals writes: It's that time of year, at least north of the equator. The windows are still open, but the darned furnace comes on early in the morning. My husband went out for a walk after an early supper and came home in full darkness.

And yes, where we live, leaves are beginning to turn.

As this vivid season begins, tell us five favorite things about fall:

1) A fragrance: Pumpkin pie (least favorite was the place I lived that still allowed leaf burning!)

2) A color: I love the fall colors (my wardrobe attests to this), I like the dark orange that moves toward mustard yellow. And my favorite outside is the clear red of the maple.


3) An item of clothing: my suede skirt, midcalf and full. Only drawback: no pockets. But I really like the skirt anyway. And my turtle necks. I have many in different paisleys.


4) An activity: walks in the woods.

5) A special day: My B-Day! It's still a ways off, but it's in fall.

Beautiful photo, and I can just imagine how great you look in the paisley turtle and suede skirt. I jumped the gun a couple of weeks ago and made a squash pie (very much like pumpkin, just because I had a can of squash in the pantry). MMMM!

I love paisley, too! I have it on my bed and am loathe to get rid of my comforter even though it's a million gazillion years old.

Happy Birthday! :)

I love your 'flame' tree. Beautiful. And saw just your shade of orange ribbon at the market this morning. Didn't buy (I have a box full of ribbon already) but very tempted.
