10 On Tuesday

Welcome September!  I'm not too sure where August went to (or July for that matter) but here we are.  And I am joining Carole for 10 Things You Love About September.
1.  Time for apple picking.  We usually go mid month because that seems to be when you can get the best selection at the orchard.

2.  School starts.  For me this means getting back to the normal routine and routine is good.

3.  Cooler weather.  Need I say more?

4.  Fall colors start appearing. The leaves don't really change much until October around here but fall decorations and color can be seen all over as the weeks go on.

5.  Harvest Fairs.  We have so many great ones around here.  Besides the crafts you can find lots of yummy goodies.

6.  Football starts for real!

7.  I get to break out the Fall Yankee Candles.  My favorites are Harvest, Pumpkin Spice, Autumn Wreath, the list goes on....

8.  The Big E.  For anybody around here in New England you all know what a great time this is.  For those who don't, it's like a huge state fair that goes on for weeks.  We will be going this year and that's exciting since we missed the last couple of years.

9.  Starting the wood stove.  At this point we only start it at night for the effect but within a month it will be going strong depending on how kind mother nature is.

10.  Spending more time outside.  I think I spend more time outside knitting and spinning in September than any other month. It's not too hot and I try to enjoy every last minute before the snow and really cold weather arrives!

Great list! I haven't been out to the Big E in years!

I agree 100% with everything on your list. I lit a Macintosh candle yesterday and it smelled so good!

It's so great to spend more time outside in the fall!

Went to my sr son's football game on Saturday and my fresh. son's game yesterday, and after I read this I went right downstairs and pulled out a candle marked Farmer's Market that I had squirreled away for this season and lighted it. I tell myself summer vacation is less stress and structure, but we run all summer and the busy school schedule seems almost a break! Happy to have Hemlock Lake on my schedule this month. Looking around at all the stuff I should be doing, but I'm resting instead. Even Fall!! I will

I'd love to visit New England in the fall. It's been on travel bucket list for years. Hope you'll share some photos. Sept. sounds like a special time of year in your part of the world.
