Fall Bucket List 2014

It’s officially fall now. Yes, the season that in ways I enjoy, and in some ways I enjoy.  And with the new season, I have some projects for a fall bucket list. So here are some of the things I really want to do this season.

1.       Clean the gutters on my house. Yes, some years I’m good at this, and then there are years when I just don’t want to do it. And I put it off, and somehow it never happens. And the next thing you know you have little trees in the gutter in the spring. Not fun. This year I’m going to get it all cleaned out early on.

2.       I really want to go to Mississinewa 1812. Yep, one of the biggest battles of 1812 was fought an hour away from my home. The reenactment of the battle and the entire fair goings on in the area has always sounded like fun to me. So this is the year that I’m going to make it to the event, if the boss gives me the time off I requested.

3.       Carving pumpkins is a blast, and I have many plans for pumpkins this fall, but I really, really, really, am going to use the seeds, and make some delightful chocolate covered pumpkin seeds this year.

4.       Acorns, each year, the squirrel in the oak tree and I fight about acorns. He runs around burying them in my yard. I yell at him for digging so many holes, and causing all of those seedlings to come up in my yard. This year, the goal is to pick up most of the acorns, so he can’t bury them.  I’ve already started. I just have to figure out what to do with all of those acorns. Suggestions are welcome.

5.       I am actually going to go out, and enjoy some of the warm fall days. I always seem to get all caught up in everything that is going on around me, and I don’t go out and enjoy time outdoors like I should. And I really do enjoy time outdoors. I’m going to spend some time walking around, and actually looking at things so I see the season move from one point to another. And of course I’m going to take pictures of it this year. (wink, wink)

So these are a few of my plans for this fall, what are your goals for the fall, and I’ll let you know how much of my bucket list I actually accomplish this year.
