Friday Five: Autumn Musing

My husband and my mother, a few years ago.

Let us fear the LORD our God, who gives autumn and spring rains in season, who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest. Jeremiah 5:23b

The Autumnal Equinox has just come 'round again. I took a look back at our Friday Fives and noted that it always seems to make the Rev Gals and their Pals think of changes.

There is something so nostalgic about this time of year, at least in the Northern Hemisphere. The nights grow cooler, crops are harvested, for some of us the leaves are beginning to change colors. The scent of smoke is in the air, pumpkins are in the stores (or on wagons, or in roadside stands for those of us in the country). I'm thinking of putting away my summer clothes and pulling out the sweaters. And I have a tub of Fall-themed items that my husband just lugged up from the basement. I'm looking for my scarecrow.

For this week, let's share some memories along with some hopes and expectations.

1. Share a Fall memory.
2. Your favorite Fall clothes--(past or present)?
3. Share a campfire story, song, experience...etc.
4. What is your favorite thing about this time of year?
5. What changes are you anticipating in your life, your church, the season changes and winter approaches?

Bonus: What food says "AUTUMN" at your house? Recipes always appreciated.

  1. Here is mine. I'm off to work, but I'll read as many posts as I can on my lunch break and later this evening.

  2. I haven't played Friday 5 in ages...too busy packing and moving mostly. And now I don't have Fridays off anymore. SO I'm off to work. But I'll be back to play later, b/c I love Fall!

  3. I played at my place.

    Bonus: What we did to the WonderMutt: what happens when you ask the groomer to clean up mats and "just take a little off."

  4. It's been a while since I've done a Friday Five, but this got me going Fall

  5. I opened the floodgates here
    after a summer of extremely poor blogging performance. May it be the first turn of a new leaf.

  6. It took me a bit to scan some old photos, but they are finally in my answers here

  7. I played today but didn't take a picture of my own scarecrow, but maybe will do so later. Thanks for the great topic, SingingOwl!

  8. I had some memories about Falls past and thoughts about Falls present here.

  9. A bit late, but I played at my place.

  10. My Friday Five has become Saturday Five...but you can read 'em here .

  11. My hubs had the day off Friday, so it became Saturday five here. The questions were just too good not to attempt answers! Thank you Singing Owl.
