The Joys of Autumn

La's List

* Stores release festive "Holiday" creamers, such as Pumpkin Spice (tasty!).

* The weather gets just cool enough, for my taste. Warm(ish) in the afternoon, cool at night.

* Plans for holiday parties and traditions stir from their long spring/summer nap.

* My baking skills peak out of their hiding place.

* Bulb planting and planning for wonderful spring blooms is in full swing.

* Fireplaces, blankets, socks; it's a season for snuggling!!

* Watching the birds migrate south

Lee's List

* Hot chocolate and peppermint Schnapp's!

* Cracking nuts :)

* The anticipation of the Holidays, family, traditions

La AND Lee's List

* Impatience for spring-training to get here first shows it's nasty little head (this is the first year for that one!)

* World Series!!

* Brilliant colors interrupt the summer greens (and browns here in Utah). Deep reds, bright yellows, and pumpkin oranges turn the mountains into rainbows.

* Pumpkin pie, fo sho!

* 'Tis the season for all things apple

I would be remiss if I didn't ask...

"Cracking nuts"?

Lee just likes nuts, Don. I thought you'd understand, of all people. Sheesh.
