My Fall Bucket List 2020

Harvest Lane Cottage
 Fall Bucket List

Happy Fall Y'all!

It's my very most favoritest time of year! I love the chill in the air in the evenings. We still have some very warm days, but cooler weather is coming. The maples witness to it with their blazing gold, orange, and crimson leaves fluttering in the breeze. The little squirrels in the neighborhood have been scampering around no doubt in search of every acorn they can find from the lovely oaks.

Loving this season


  1. We had chili for supper tonight 😁. And one of my favorite Christmas books is “Christmas Eve in the Mountaineers Home” by GW Lose. It’s an endearing story- found it online before posting this and it was $10 which isn’t horrible, but might check the library first. I’ve had mine for years.

    1. Thank you so much for the book suggestion. My library doesn't have it. Where did you find it online?Blessings,Laura

  2. I enjoyed your list so much! We've been enjoying the days with fall weather, and I'm again reminded why it's my very favorite season (although I really do love them all for their own special qualities!) The end of your post where you said "plan for..." reminded me of an Amish fiction book series I found earlier this year and in it one of the characters always says "plan for happiness." I think you're definitely on a blessed path :) Here is our family's bucket list for October

    1. Oh Jenny, thank you so much for writing me! This is the first thing I read this morning, and I'm uplifted by your kind encouraging words.

      I'm going over right now and read your bucket list! Maybe I'll find something more to add to mine. I have the day off today, so I plan to do something from my list in addition to my housework.
