Autumn Trivia by Jamie Hill





The temperature was 58 degrees F when I woke up Saturday morning and man did that feel nice. We were able to turn off the central air and open the windows for the first time all summer. I see 90 in the forecast later this week but for now, we're soaking up the fall.


Football, hoodies, campfires, S'mores...fall brings lots of enjoyable activities and no, I don't count leaf-raking as one of them. Fortunately, the nice young men who mow our lawn take care of that now. Age does have a few privileges.

How about some (easy) Autumn Trivia from Party Ideas Parade?

Although I love the colors, Autumn is my least favorite time of year. The trees shed their leaves and become bare. To me it's a time of sadness.Not sure why, I don't care for Halloween, but I love Thanksgiving - the start of the Christmas Holidays. Maybe it's because winter comes next. LOL
One of my favorite songs about Autumn is Autumn Leaves by Nat King Cole. Nat King Cole – Autumn Leaves Lyrics
The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall.
