  1. That caramel apple looks amazing – we don’t have them here – only the red toffee apples (no nuts and no caramel!) Also like the look of that pool (and nice toenail polish!) it all looks so warm and summery – I’m looking forward to Spring easing into Summer here (atm it keeps regressing back into winter rains…)

    • It really was delicious, Leanne! I have had the red candied apples as well, but not since I was a child. I hope you get your warmer weather soon. Our weather keeps teasing us with winter. I just want to hang onto fall a little longer.

  2. I like how you created your list. My fall treat was not a caramel apple, but an apple fritter! Yum.

    I made a list of 9 “out & about” activities and have done 4 so far. It’s just cooling off this week, so hoping to add another check off (a hike at near-by state park) next week. Fall was always my favorite season…. it’s going to be different here in Florida where it is summer for 6 months of the year! Fall means mornings have dipped below 70, but highs still reach into the 80’s! I know i’ll be happy not having the gray winters we have in Cincinnati.

    • Ooh Pat, an apple fritter sounds yummy too! I’m glad you’ve been able to get out and about a bit. I hope by the time you read this, you have had a chance to hike. I’m sure fall will be an adjustment for you, but as you said, winter will be lovely.

    I loved the poem you posted at the beginning. I’ve recently made split pea soup and I’ve been drinking chai spice tea. The author and I must have the same idea of what Fall means. I also loved the picture of Tessa-so cute, and she’s growing up! It looks like you have a great Fall planned and I’ve no doubt you will do it all.🧡💛🧡

    • Wasn’t that a lovely autumn sentiment, Cindy? It resonated with me too. Tessa is so grown up. I realized it even more spending a week of one-on-one time with her. I hope fall will bring you closer to good health! XO

  4. I’d like to see the Addams Family movie. And I’d like to eat a caramel apple. Both seem like quintessential fall activities. I might not get to them until November, but that’s okay by me.

  5. Your list is the best!! So fun how you created it from suggestions and activities that others have on their lists. I might try that next time.

    Your pool is just beautiful. The yard looks like a very deluxe resort!! So glad you enjoyed a pleasant week in Utah. When you retire, will that become home or will you continue to travel back and forth?

    Yay for visiting the theater with your grand. And Junior Mints. And especially popcorn. I am excited for Encanto on Thanksgiving week and Clifford the Big Red Dog which opens first. Would like to try to take both grandgirls here in El Paso but Cami might be a mess.

    Love the idea of the daughter dates. Might borrow that one, too, and do it unofficially. Going to see Brennyn this coming weekend to attend her baby shower in Ft. Worth. Maybe I can sneak Lauren away sometime before the year’s end for lunch or a movie.

    I am slowly beginning to write more. Hope to do some writing tomorrow.
    Big hugs!!

    • It was a fun way to create my list, Leslie. I always think of things I want to do after reading other peoples’ lists, so it made sense.

      We are loving our pool and our yard. I confess, we relied on a landscaper. We just don’t know enough about desert landscaping yet. Once I retire, we will (initially at least) go back and forth between northern and southern Utah.

      I hope you get a chance to see the movies with your grandgirls and have some mother/daughter dates as well.

      Good luck on your writing! Hugs back to you!
