Time for Writer’s Workshop! Head on over to Mama Kat’s to join in.
This week, I’m choosing prompt 5: 10 reasons why you’re glad it’s fall.
Dexter! Every September, we subscribe to Showtime to watch the funniest, sickest and most involving serial killer show ever made. And after last season’s whopper of an ending, we couldn’t WAIT to see what was going to happen this season. This is one case where I think the show is better than the books.
Halloween! This is one of my favorite holidays. You get to dress up and get candy! What could be better?
Cooler weather! I don’t do well in heat so I thrive in the cooler fall temperatures. Plus, the cooler weather means I can wear pants again … which means I can start letting my leg hair grow without worrying anyone will see.
Football! It is one of the few professional sports I actually enjoy. Although I definitely get more interested during playoff season, even I can pay attention for 16 games. Go Eagles!
Candy corn and marshmallow pumpkins! I love these type of fall candies and only let myself get them during this time of year.
Pumpkins! I love carving jack-o-lanterns and hope to make one of these really funny types this year.
Corn mazes! I think corn mazes are fun, and I can’t wait to take the Little One to a bigger one this year to see how he likes it. Maybe we can even try a haunted hayride!
The start of school! Is there anything more wonderful than the start of school for a stay-at-home mom? No … there is not. I feel like I have my life back.
Leaves changing colors! I love that we live in a climate that has all four seasons, and the fall foliage is definitely one of the highlights of the fall.
Fall smells and candles! Of all the scents, I think I enjoy the fall smells the most—pumpkin pie spices, apple cider, cinnamon spice, cranberry spice.
