Top Favorite Things About Fall

Mama's Losin' It

Time for the Writer's Workshop over at Kat's place, Mama Kat's Losin' It.  

My chosen prompt:  List Your Top Favorite Things About Fall


This list is a bit difficult for me because I really do love when Spring and Summer happen in our city. The grey clouds hold off for weeks and weeks and that feels so good.  And there are so many great things to do in Portland, that doing them while dry is such a nice bonus.  However, there are things I appreciate about our beautiful Fall as well.  Here's my list of my top favorite things about Fall:

~  Not caring how pale my legs are.  (They will be covered for months!)

~  Pumpkin lattes.  Pumpkin Milkshakes.  Pumpkin Pie.  Pumpkin Muffins. (I must be hungry.)

~  Leaves dropping, which brings out our limited view of the Willamette River that's beyond our             backyard.

~  Big, fluffy, cozy socks.  (I like warm feet.)

~  How excited my girls get about Halloween.  The age transition is being made where our oldest wants to stay home and hand out candy. But I don't know for sure, her little sister has some pretty cool costumes from her favorite Anime's and Manga's that might draw Katie out into the darkness wearing her Anime character costume as well. Costumes + Candy = Win! Win!

So, how about you?  What are some of your favorite things about Fall?

Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
