Week #2 – One of the best things about Autumn is…

Recently I joined Wanderlust, which is a nice forum with nice people doing nice things – I’m Kalliste over there, if you decide to take a look.

Currently, there is a weekly blogging challenge where you’re provided with a topic to blog about. It’s up to week 2 but it doesn’t really matter as obviously, this is only my first attempt. Go and take a look if you’re interested in joining the forum and the group.

And onto the challenge…

“One of the best things about Autumn is…”

Initially, I thought this would be quite easy. Autumn is nice and cool (better than Summer for sure), the leaves change colour on the trees and you can eat nice warm hearty meals. Sounds ok.

Then I thought to myself that not only is Autumn nice and cool, it’s also warm and sometimes hot, but also sometimes really cold and sometimes all of that happens on the same day. I remembered how I hate getting up and dressing for a freezing morning and then being sweltering in my jumper by lunch time. So, no the weather isn’t one of the best things about Autumn.

After that I thought about how I always think about running and kicking piles of red/orange leaves everywhere! But I never actually do it, I just think about it sometimes. After thinking about it a little more I remembered the trees that line one of the streets (a big street) here. It’s about this time of year when they start dropping these little red berries. Little red berries that get slippery in the rain. Little red berries that stick in your shoes for days and days. Little red berries that make you want to end the life cycle of ALL little red berries that ever existed. The dream is that one day I’ll cut all those trees down and there will be no more little red berries causing their little red berry chaos. So, no the changing trees and leaves isn’t one of the best things about Autumn.

So, that left the delicious food options but I don’t really change what I eat in autumn and I don’t particularly like soup or roasts or anything like that and if I did, I’d probably still eat it any other time of the year. So, no the possible foods that are stamped ‘Autumn Foods’ isn’t one of the best things about Autumn.

Finally, I realised what one of the best things about Autumn is and it was so obvious I don’t know how I didn’t think of it to begin with; One of the best things about Autumn is that it includes Jarrod and my anniversary. We had a lot of fun last year when our relationship (as a couple) was just beginning and this year as we celebrated 365 days of getting to be an ‘us’. Mostly, it makes me think of how fortunate we are that we didn’t miss out on each other.

So, yes there is something I enjoy about Autumn and it makes up for all of those other things, even the berries.

    I’m pretty sure that only little kids think that playing in the leaves is the best part of autumn. It was for me when I was five! And then my mom made me rake the leaves, which made it not fun anymore.

    Happy Anniversary! May you enjoy many more years together.
