Today it is september and today my husband son and friend of son have been gathering chestnuts and hazelnuts. So it is fall.. Time for an autumnlist! Things I look forward too this fall:
1. morning fog however my appreciation might be less since my son rides his own bike too school now..
2 the sound of fallen leaves under my feet
3 searching for gnomes in the forest
4 the smell of autumn: earthy, spicy and lovely...
5 hot chocolate after you have been soaked on your bike. Get into dry clothes and underwear and then hot chocolate
6wearing woolen sweaters and my long brown wool coat.

18 crafting with the kids listening to the rain.

I guess fall is the season that appeals to my inner scout the most. I know it won't be as grand as I hoped but even with lots of rain it is still a great season... I can't name a favourite season though. I just love them all and the changes the most!
