Fall 10 - Autumn

  • Favorite fall dinner – a hearty country vegetable soup with lots of potatoes, crusty bread to dip it in, wedges of Michigan apple slices and white cheddar cheese
  • Favorite fall dessert – love warm apple pie or apple crisp with homemade caramel and really good vanilla bean ice cream, anything pumpkin!
  • Favorite Fall Past time – color tour walks down our country road, bonfires, apple cider making, Thanksgiving dinner, trip to Frankenmuth w family, eating mini cinnamon donuts
  • Favorite fall memory – I remember as a kid sitting on our front porch at 1505 Harding, staring at the beautiful hard maples across the street turn their amazing colors. I remember dreaming about how I wanted my life to be while watching the leaves dance in the breeze and feeling comforted by their final, peaceful fall to the ground. 
  • Even at that age, I believe I somehow understood a leaf’s metaphor – we start out small and insignificant, grow large and purposeful and end with a colorful , meaningful swansong.
  • Favorite Fall Song - Autumn Leaves – Nat king Cole
  • Favorite Fall Quote – The portion from the poem below is entitled, When the Frost is on the Punkin, by James Whitcomb Riley. Both of my parents attended one room schoolhouses and this poem was one they had to memorize and recite in front of their class.
  • O, it sets my heart a clickin’ like the tickin’ of a clock, When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock. James Whitcomb Riley
