Fall fun

Fall is here!  My absolute favorite time of year. The crisp cool air and more frequent rain are especially welcome after the summer we had. The cooler weather makes many of my favorite things much more comfortable - knitting, hiking, drinking tea, baking, cooking up giant batches of soup. 

Most of the things on this list are the things I would want to do every year. None of them would be much of a challenge on their own, but making time for all of them will be!

Make soup. So much soup. All the soup. Possibly get tired of soup.

Continue the trend from summer and go hiking at least once a month. 

Mushroom hunting.

Try making something with fresh apple cider- cider cream pie or cider caramels

Go for a walk in the rain.

Spend a rainy day curled up with a good book. There are so many good options

Knit some cozy wool  socks to keep my feet warm for the winter. Also, get an early start on my Christmas knitting. 

Go snowshoeing as early as possible.

Make a giant batch of fresh tomato sauce with the last tomatoes of summer.
