Friday Five - Equinox

(first of all, I can't believe September is over halfway through and we are staring straight in the face of the equinox... eek!)

From RevGals: It's that time of year, at least north of the equator. The windows are still open, but the darned furnace comes on early in the morning. My husband went out for a walk after an early supper and came home in full darkness.

And yes, where we live, leaves are beginning to turn.

As this vivid season begins, tell us five favorite things about fall:

I think I would have to go with the smell of pies baking... apple, pumpkin, etc... or maybe even just the smell of nutmeg and cinnamon that seems to flavor everything - hot chai tea, spiced cider... all of it just warms up the whole house.

2) A color
As you can tell by my new color scheme, I'm thinking of fall already! I would have to say a deep vibrant firey orange is probably my favorite.

3) An item of clothing
My tweed pants and my brown pointy toe boots. They are just too warm to wear in the summer and really are too cozy to wear in the spring.

carving pumpkins! My husband and I go all out and make fantastic creations. One year we actually carved GW and then some of our roommates threw the pumpkin head off of the roof of our house (it was college, silly college kids)

5) A special day
I really do love Thanksgiving. I am a food person, and we normally have about 4 meals to attend in a day. I love all of the flavors - especially cranberry sauce and stuffing.


  1. Oh, great pictures!
    I just saw some tweed flats, they are very, very tempting. Tweed is a great image of all.

  2. Have you seen the pumpkin Dremel? We saw one at Lowe's the other weekend. Awesome carving potential...
