Well, summer is definitely winding down. Most teachers are already back at school, and their students will be following them soon. While I will miss the lazy afternoons spent by the pool, I’m not too heartbroken, since fall is far and above my favorite season of the year.
The change of season means it’s time for my quarterly bucket list. I do this for accountability for myself, but also to hopefully inspire you to make your own! It’s amazing how much more gets done when we’re intentional about doing it.
Here is my fall bucket list this year:
- Go apple picking (visiting the Apple Festival in Ellijay is optional).
- Carve a pumpkin
- Go on either a hike or a drive to see the fall colors
- Explore a corn maze
- Visit a fall festival
- Halloween cemetery tour
- Set up and decorate a Christmas tree
- Watch the total solar eclipse
- I’m especially excited about this! It’s been nearly 40 years since a total solar eclipse has been visible from the United States. The last solar eclipse was 26 years ago, but it was not visible from North America. And the path of totality hasn’t stretched across the entire continental United States since 1918. This year, it’s happening again! On August 21st, you’ll be able to see the total eclipse all the way from Portland OR, to Charleston SC. Make plans to go see it if you haven’t already!
How’d you do on your summer list? What are you looking forward to in the fall? Let me know in the comments!
