Early Autumn Tag

I was tagged by Random Smiles.  Go check out that awesome blog!

Do you go out of your way to run through the autumn leaves?
Yes, I do!


Do you rake up the leaves on the lawn or do you leave them where they fall?
Leave them where they are.  I don’t really understand why people have to remove leaves from their lawn (unless they live in the woods where there are just so many leaves).  Lawns look pretty with this touch of fall!  And “perfect” lawns are overrated anyway.


How close do you sit to the fire before you get too hot?
Depends how cold the air is!  I do like to sit pretty close though.


Do you make hot chocolate from scratch or from the packet?
Packet.  I’ve never made it from scratch.  Maybe I should try that sometime…


Do you make hot chocolate with milk or water?
 Water. Sometimes I’ll add a tiny bit of milk.


What’s your favourite pumpkin-based food?
Pumpkin pie has always been a favourite of mine.


Do you enjoy feeling the cold air, or do you wrap up warm?
Just a tad chilly is fine.  Not really a fan of cold.  Or hot.  But that is the great thing about spring and autunm; the weather is in between hot and cold :)


Do you buy autumn scented candles?
No….allergies, asthma….


Do you collect autumn leaves for pressing?
I use to love pressing leaves and flowers.  I haven’t taken the time in the past few years.


Do you travel away for the half term holiday?
My fall break is only 4 days this semester.  Then I get 4 more at Thanksgiving.  I won’t be traveling for either, but I will be spending time with extended family!


Are you more active during autumn, or more laid back?
More active


Do you spend more time outside or inside during autumn?
Inside because school.


Do you go pumpkin picking?
I have, twice.  It would be fun to do it again!


Do you have any traditions to celebrate the start of autumn?
Usually autumn brings my baking mood out.  But I really can’t this year because college :'(
Mom made some wonderful sweet potato pies, and that almost makes up for it.


Do you bake cookies during the autumn?
Yes!  I love baking.  Except, college. :/


Do you eat baked pumpkin seeds?
Never had them…


When you go outside, do you blow to see your breath?
Definitely! :D


Do you watch movies in bed, or in front of the fire?
I have not inside fire and I have no TV in my bedroom.  I watch movies curled up on the couch. :)


What’s your favourite roast dinner?
Beef!  And mashed potatoes and gravy!  Yum, yum.


Cold rain or dense fog?
 Dense fog.  So much cooler and much easier for the imagination to run wild ;)


Fuzzy boots?
Not very practical…


Do you go hiking in the forest?
Yes, though I don’t do it too often.


Do you enjoy the sound of migrating birds?
I guess?  I usually watch when the birds start migrating to see if it will be an early winter.


Do you go apple picking?
My family use to do it every year, but now there is college.


What’s your favourite tea to drink in autumn?
Same as all the other times. Raspberry


Fluffy socks?
Not really my thing


Knitted scarves?
I have a few scarves that I love looking at, but I don’t ware them too often…


Do you make your own cider?


Do you read more books in the autumn or the summer?
Summer!  That is one of the best things about the season.  And the saddest thing about autumn starting….


How good are you at pumpkin carving?
I haven’t carved a pumpkin since I was maybe 10.  So I don’t think I would be any good at it.

    Great tag! My family rake up all the leaves because me and my siblings love make “forts” with it! It’s a fun pastime!
