The Ramblings of a Former Caregiver
Probably the smell of burning leaves!
Oh yes!! One of my favorite smells!!
Pumpkin patches and the pretty color of fall leaves :)betty
I love going to the pumpkin patch. I wonder if I can still talk the kids into going!!
Yes, the burning leaves back when I was a kid.
We didn't burn leaves much when I was a kid!
Long hikes through the woods with the leaves crunching under my feet and the smell of decay in the air. (I know, I'm weird but I think decaying leaves smell good)
I do love walking on the crunching leaves, too, Wendy!
High-school football games ... bundling up in a soft sweater ... and taking deep breaths (as if they were my last!) of the acute high-country pine trees.
I never went to a single football game in high school. I am not a football fan. But I never missed a game that Justin played in when he was in high school and college. Still didn't learn to love the game!!
Favorite memory of fall...? Hmmmm... We don't really have "fall" per se. Eventually it gets cooler. The leaves do change. But to get a real fall, I had to visit family in Oregon in October (a couple times in the '90s. They have since moved back to California).I guess I would go with the Whittier earthquake of 1987. Good times...
Can't imagine that an earthquake would garner good memories. LOL! I don't thik I would like living where there are not four seasons. I don't like winter that much and wish there was less of it. But I would miss it if I didn't have it.
Color. Natures riot of color.
Yes, that is my favorite memory too. The color of the aspens in Colorado with Richard, especially!!
My favorite memory of fall is the annual two-day conference for educators. As a student, it gave us kids a four-day weekend!
That would be a great memory. I always liked "back-to-school" even as a kid
Moose hunting with my dad, and then later in life, with my first husband. I grew up in Alaska. September is the best month there, by far!
Now that is a memory I haven't heard about! Hunting is not for me but I came from a family that loved to hunt!
I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
