Great list! I wish we had fall here, but in Florida its perpetual summer.

Judy Callarman said...

I love these things, too--especially the rain and the smells. We don't have snow here in Texas this time of year. It's still in the 80s, but cooling off.

This IS a great time of year, but I'm actually still in shorts! We've had a few cool days (and one cold night -- in a tent, which resulted in my stupid cold), but nothing like it should be. It's good for my gas bill, but I'm ready for my jeans.

Sandy Carlson said...

I share your love for these things, particularly No. 1. How I would love to try out No. 4 tomorrow!

Those are all things I really enjoy, too. Except for the electric bill which I am still paying in the state of Washington for my house the kids are living in. hmmm what's wrong with that picture?

Nicholas said...

I love #4, especially if everyone else is up and about!

jenn said...

I love the anticipation of Thanksgiving and Christmas during the fall. It's also my favorite time of year to bake.
Happy TT!

I do like putting on long pants and long shirts to get cozy. We are finally get Fall here in New England, it has been warm for awhile.

Great list, oh how I love you T13 halloween banner!

One of the things I love about apartment living is that I don't have to mow the lawn anymore. As for the new fall shows, I am enjoying Pushing Daisies and The Bionic Woman.

Thanks for stopping by my TT. In regards to Jim Gaffigan, I didn't consider him because I'm not that familiar with his stand-up work. Maybe I'll check him out sometime.

No Nonsense Girl said...

you and I love many of the same things.... I love the smell of fireplace, I love to sleep on rainy days.

The difference is that my bill gets up during the winter and goes down during summer. I'm in cold canada!!!

There is something just outright cozy about this time of year if you live in the right areas. You just want to snuggle up with the season and watch the holidays roll in.

Great list! I'm looking forward to #8 especially. :)

Happy TT

I don't know if I'm ready to pull out my winter coat and gloves yet but the ice on my car this morning tells me that I am.

I love the smell of a wood-burning fireplace, but the only time you see them here in Israel is up north, and even there not that often.

Darla said...

You get to sleep in on rainy days??

tommiea said...

I love fall....I could have written this list myself. The new pumpkin latte at Starbucks is my favorite!!

Secret Agent Mama said...

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year!!

yh said...

Sometimes I wish we had snow so we could stay home.. and not have to go in to work.. because Californians (ok.. me) probably freak out at the first sign of snow. We're not used to it. :)

AnGlOpHiLe FoOtBaLl FaNaTiC said...

I love the changes at Starbucks, too! I can't wait for all the peppermint things in another month!!

erin said...

Fall is my favorite season! Fun list. I loooove those holiday flavors at Starbucks! My list is events of 1981, the year I was born. Happy TT!

I was over in Boston from the UK this time last year, and I had pumpkin cream muffins from Starbucks every day I was there. In fact, to make a confession, some days I had 2! I've been craving them ever since. If you're in the US, and near a Starbucks, have one for me :-)

ancsweetnsassygal said...

Great TT. Autumn is my favorite time of the year too. Thanks for visiting my TT. Happy Friday!

dawn said...

I love this time of year too. We already had Thanksgiving here in Canada, and I am so excited we are getting new wood stove next week. It is an Amish Cook stove. I love the heat from the stove.

Samantha Lucas said...
