Fall Bucket List

Instead of putting together a Fall Stitching Basket yesterday afternoon like I was supposed to, I found myself sitting in front of the fire, staring out the window at the grey sky, and getting all pensive and angsty because I know in a couple of days the store shelves will be cleared of anything even remotely related to fall and out will come the holiday items. I am so not ready to give up my cozy fall days! So I grabbed a pen and paper and started jotting down things I'd still like to do before the tree goes up and the halls are decked. Basically it is a Fall Bucket List and I am happy to report I am already crossing things off!

One thing I love about fall is it's prime time for my slow cooker. And one of my favorite dishes to have simmering away in it is chili. A quick trip to the grocery store for a few ingredients and BAM!
There's no real recipe here... I just throw in all the things I like with some seasonings and let it go! It smells heavenly! I can't wait to dig in!

Next up are these beauties...
My favorite boots of all time were sitting in the back of the closet, practically forgotten. Luckily my last Stitch Fix included a pair of charcoal grey jeans that go perfectly with them! And yes, I do a stupid dance every time I put these on! I don't know why other than just wearing them makes me happy! :-)

Next up on my list was some stitching. Something simple that I could get done quickly but still feel like I'd accomplished something major. I know! I'll finish all of the borders for the blocks on my VoHRH!
While I had everything out I decided on which Block to work on next and sorted the thread so I'm ready to go when the mood strikes!

So there ya have it! It's so nice to finally be joining the party!

Hooray for Fall!

Yay on getting the blocks all framed on VoHRH! Nice looking boots! They look very comfortable. Hope you get more items marked off your fall bucket list.

I have never seen chili with corn before. It is fun to see the many varieties of chili across America.
I love to start wearing my boots again in the fall. I have a trusty pair of black similar to your grey ones. And my cowgirl boots. ;)

It is nice to take time to enjoy the seasons. It sometimes feels like a mad rush from Halloween to Christmas! Enjoy!
