Tuesday Tidbits #193 Autumn Bliss

One minute we had Summer temps and then Mother Nature blinked her eyes and just like that… Fall appeared!

With Fall comes cooler temperatures and the days become crisp even though rain has shown up in our neck of the woods. Warmth fills our home as the furnace has turned on. Candles are lit which permeate the air with a fragrance of Pumpkin Spice. So let the coziness begin… some call it Hygge.

Do you see that Pumpkin Tea Cup… my soon to be daughter in love gave that to me. 🧡 The lighted Candy Corn tree is from my sweet sister.🧡

🍁Fall Bucket List🍁

Remember last week I talked a little about my Fall Bucket List. More has been checked off!

1. Fall harvest brings more Pumpkin patches!

Sweet Man found the best pumpkin! It was the most orange in the whole patch!
We chose a smaller one. Some were half the size of a pallet. Wow!

We went to a Pumpkin Patch! 🎃 ✔️ Another item checked off our Fall Bucket List!

2. Fall brings County Fairs or in our case a Town Fair!

This Town Fair had a Tractor Pull. Have you ever been to a tractor pull? This was my first! It was quite fun!

The tractor pulls a sled with heavy concrete slabs.
Each tractor takes a turn at pulling the sled.
After all have had a turn pulling the sled. The sled gets added weight. This continues until only one tractor remains and it is the tractor that can pull the most weight.
My high school classmate won! His tractor pulled the most weight!

Town Fairs are quite fun and you never know what you might see!

The Grinch just happened to ride by!
Pennsylvania’s largest watermelon. Or is it the world’s largest?
Large Pumpkins!
Creative ways to make a cow.
Sweet Man’s favorite bunny.
That face!
How many ways can you decorate a Hay Barrel?

Went to a Town Fair. ✔️ Another checked off of our Fall Bucket List!

3. Try to savor the Seasonal Changes.

We hope this was not our last boat ride for the year.
Colors are trying to pop from the trees.
My favorite tree on the lake is slowly sharing its Autumn Bliss.

Enjoying each moment of the season! Stop and pause often.✔️

4. Decorate your home with colors of Autumn.

As you can tell… we are enjoying the harvest. Different varieties of squash and our neighbor’s chestnuts. We really enjoyed the yellow striped Delicata squash on the left.

5. Enjoying every morsel of the Fall Harvest! ✔️

We really enjoyed the yellow striped Delicata squash. It was delicious! It is our new favorite. The skin can be eaten as well so it does not need to be peeled.

1. I cut the Delicato Squash in half and cleaned the seeds out. 2. I sliced it in half inch slices and drizzled it with olive oil and sprinkled with some salt. 3. Roast in a 425 degree oven for 20 minutes. The skin is edible and it adds a fabulous crispy addition to the creamy squash.

Have you been checking your Fall Bucket List off? ✔️✔️✔️
