Welcome Autumn 2011

Happy Fall!

What's not to love about autumn?

It is my favorite time of year, and is Ohio's best season.  The crisp fresh air with low humidity and cool breezes.  

The trees are already turning here in Central Ohio.  Before long, they will falling in the breeze onto the ground where they will crunch...crunch...crunch under foot.  I love that sound.  
We went to the orchard yesterday for the annual Apple Festival.  Does anything smell better than an apple orchard in the fall.  It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.  I remember every fall going to the orchard with Mom.  We would buy apples, caramels, parched corn, and cider. 
You all know how much I love my football.  I follow football at all levels with high school being my favorite.  I love the school spirit shown by the players, band, cheerleaders, and fans.  I've been watching my nephews and Jordan play football for nearly 20 years.  Boy, that makes me feel old. 
Nephew, Joel is #2
Fall holidays are fun, festive, and food driven.  Halloween is so much fun.  I love handing out candy to all the little ghosts, goblins, lions, and princesses.  I even enjoy giving treats to the teenagers who come around with a pillow case.  Of course, I can't forget the four-legged tricksters.  They get treats, too.  
Jordan from his first Halloween to last year
Last year, I had a bowl of dog treats to hand out and a certain black furry Court Jester, pictured in my banner, kept sneaking treats.  He was very slick about it too.  I wouldn't notice until I'd hear him chomping on it.  
After Halloween, we gear up for the feast of the year, Thanksgiving.  I am still a kid at heart and can't imagine not plopping my backside in front of the TV for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and the official arrival of SANTA CLAUS!!!  

If you missed Pat's post about the parade last year, do yourself a favor and visit her HERE

Oh my, talk about food coma...after the parade, the onslaught of power-eating ensues with turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberries, sweet potatoes, and baked goods.  The gluttonous eating is justified though, because you have to have plenty of energy for the Black Friday sales that begin just hours after your THIRD dessert. 

I think I will throw on some sweats and start planning my eating strategy....
