Autumn Bucket List

To soak up all the possible fall moments this year, I like to make a list of autumn themed things to do. This seems to help me organize my thoughts when I have some downtime which is a lot these days. I began doing this a few years ago and have definitely noticed that when I do, I am more likely to take advantage of exciting seasonal things. Here’s my to do list this year:

  1. Go to a pumpkin patch
  2. Apple picking
  3. See the sights of Fallorado
  4. Pumpkin carving
  5. Decorate
  6. Burn a fall scented candle
  7. Go on a hayride (socially distanced, of course)
  8. Go to an autumn market (I went to my friend Jen’s Fall Bazaar that she puts on every year in October. My haul included a handmade mask with a jack-o-lantern on it, a handmade pumpkin spice bar of soap, a face serum that is already making my skin glow, handmade cards, and some Cowboy Candy which consists of slightly sweet pickled jalapeños. I cannot wait to use it on a veggie burger!)

9. Make a list of Halloween themed movies and watch one a day in October (doing this and loving it!)
10. Go to a pop up costume store like Spirit. Poor Colm has to listen to me screech with joy when I see my first pop up store of the season.
11. Make a squash/pumpkin based meal
12. Bake some rosemary bread
13. Make my way through a corn maze
14. Maximize opportunities to wear flannel
15. Make my own candy
16. Build a fire, whenever we are not in a burn ban
17. Honor my ancestors
18. Use the telescope to observe October’s blue moon (two full moons in one month, not an actual blue hue)
19. Collect autumn leaves (I collect one of every color each year and put them in my car to remind me of fall year round.)
20. Send spooky mail to friends and family

What are you favorite autumn activities?
