My Autumn Bucket List
Like it or not, Fall 2012 is officially begun, and it's time for me to quit whining and embrace this season. So I've developed a three-point plan for changing my attitude:
First, I dug out some old fall photos, and posted them here to remind me that sometimes autumn can be quite lovely. Alright, fine. The red leaves are nice, I can't deny it.
Then, I scrolled around in my Pinterest board entitled, "autumn is not my favorite but i'm trying to like it." Lots of golden-y, orange-y things. Also, a big jack-o'-lantern eating a little jack-o'-lantern. My sense of humor may be returning.
Finally, I made my fall bucket list. I am always at my best when I am actually doing something, so an action plan is just what I need to stare down this season of my discontent, and get through it at top of my game.
As I explained when sharing my summer bucket list, I take my seasonal cues from a family of storybook bears. Here are their recommendations for fall fun; let's do this!
watch the birds fly south
go to school
dress up for Halloween
feed the birds
carve a jack-'o-lantern
move things around in my house
bring the houseplants back indoors
buy new clothes
cut down the flower stalks
make an apple pie
get the car ready for winter
