Happy Autumn

Happy Autumn to you all.
Today is the first day of Autumn, also known as
the Autumn Equinox. There is an equal balance of
day and night today. After this day, the days will
grow shorter.

Don't let this beautiful day go to waste celebrate. Even
if it's a workday, you can find small ways to do so.

Make or eat anything with apples in it: apple pie,
apple fritters, apple cider, or one juicy apple.

Eat grapes or drink wine.

Make popcorn, cornbread or eat hot buttered corn.

Wear autumn colors in a piece of clothing or
accessories : red, orange, yellow, purple, green

When sunset falls, burn candles in autumn colors.

Pick leaves and press them in a book. Display them in
a frame.

Go outside to a local park and be with nature. Notice
how the land is changing around you.

Put up autumn decorations around your house.

Take time to mediate and focus on what you like
to accomplish this Autumn.

Make plans to go apple picking, hay riding or tour
local historical homes in your areas.

Buy sunflowers and pumpkins to decorate with. Or
bake pumpkin pie.

Read poetry about Autumn.

Look up stories about old Goddesses and Gods of Autumn
from various cultures.

There is so much to do on this day. Use your imagination
and there is no limit to the fun you can have.

Wishing you all a wonderful Autumn Equinox.

I will be back here tomorrow for the Harvest Moon.

I think I'll take an earned break and go watch an old Autumanal movie in an old theatre with an old friend. Happy Season Change.

Yes, autumn is here! Although down here in the South, it's 90 degrees! Summer just doesn't want leave yet. So, we wait patiently.. In the meantime, I'm enjoying every bit of nature. Thanks for sharing your beautiful autumn list!

Blessed Autumn to you too Shell! And the harvest moon is tomorrow, isn't that amazing timing? I'm making a feast for tonight and already made a cranberry sparkling cider for a fun drink! Hope you are having a fantastic day today, filled with lots of gold light and crunchy leaves.

Happy Autumn Shell!
I can feel the change in the air even though it is still quite hot and muggy.
When I was little we used to find the prettiest leaves and iron them between two pieces of wax paper. My Mom would hang them in the windows ~
I think I will make some popcorn tonight ~ I borrowed The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945) from the library. I saw it a long time ago and I can't wait to watch it again!

Wonderful Autumn suggestions, Shell! The photo evokes everything I love about fall - gorgeous colors and textures! Makes me want to shuffle through some leaves!! Maybe in October!
