Fall has officially arrived here, although I think that there will still be a few warm days that will sneak in, which I am perfectly fine with. I love the summer months. I have come to hate winter with living in western new york for four years, but it did teach me how to deal with the cold. I thought I'd write a list of things that Chancho and I can try and achieve this autumn before the snow comes and we're stuck inside.
  • Apple picking -- I used to go every fall with my mother up near my grandmother's house, I'd like to get back to that tradition. It also gives us a good excuse to visit her and grab that large bowl of ice cream.
  • Park walks -- there are plenty of parks that provide walking trails, but now that it's cooling down it won't be so hot and sticky that we can enjoy the walks. Plus it provides beautiful scenes to take pictures
  • Pumpkin Picking -- I haven't actually been here in downstate NY and I'm not sure where I'd go besides a local Home Depot or Nursery, but I would like to go and do it.
  • Haunted House -- I'm not big on haunted houses, but maybe this year it could be something fun to do.
  • Scenic Garden (Wave Hill) -- I hear there is this beautiful garden that has an art gallery as well. Something that could probably keep us entertained for a Sunday or Monday afternoon.
  • Lederhosen -- It's a bar/pub in NYC that I want to go to. It's a German place that is said to be excellent with their food and reasonable prices. In being German, I'd like to give it a go.
  • Camping Trip -- This one is questionable. It is getting pretty cold at night and we both don't want to go for just one night, but Chancho really really wants to go camping one more time before next summer. We'll see how this one turns out.
That's all that I can think of for now. I'm sure there is plenty more for us to do, but with 7 things to do before the first snowfall and only one day out of the week to do these things on, I think this will be plenty.

  1. I love fall too. Those all sound like such fun activities to do together. You have great ideas. I have never gone apple picking before. I would LOVE to do that. I really loathe the winter months being from California and all. :)
