I love the season of autumn. I am sure I have waxed poetic about the season of falling leaves, fireplace scented morning runs, and weekend bed bound reading sessions before.
I shared a rather ambitious Summer To Do List and I didn’t manage to achieve many of the things that I set out to. I keep forgetting that the days fill up so quickly with the must dos that the want to dos generally fall by the wayside.
I want to revel in the cooling days before winter. Autumn is my favourite season (not only because it contains my birthday!) but also because here in Brisbane autumn is just the softer end of summer. The days are still warm, but the mornings and evenings tickle your toes with their creeping chill, soup and socks seem more appropriate, and running outside is a boundless joy for the soul.
This autumn for me is full of dissertation writing, celebrating the weddings of friends, and a trip out west (Road trippin’!). In amongst the busy days and the myriad birthdays seem to populate these months I have three simple goals I would like to achieve in the midst of this busy, nourished life.
- Go hiking with friends
- Knit myself a scarf
- Make a gluten free pumpkin pie
I am excited for this golden ochre season, but I’m still enjoying this end of summer.
Before the autumn leaves come round I’m going out to enjoy the summer sunshine just a little more.
Tell me, dear reader, what is on your Autumn To Do List? Or Spring List for my northern hemisphere friends?
