Thanks to a comment she made on this blog, I came across a lovely blog by Penelope. She is a new bride whose blog covers everything from homemaking and cooking ideas to articles on femininity and accepting people as they are. I truly enjoyed her posts on femininity... so much so that they are printed and stashed away for easy access. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I did!!

When does fall begin for you? I start to feel like it is fall when the temperature turns cooler and becomes more crisp.
What is your favorite aspect of fall? I love the instinct I have to nest and snuggle down in our home.

What do you like to drink in the fall? I love hot chocolate and really cold apple cider.
What's your favorite fall food? I love meaty stews and soups, hot muffins and warm breads, cinnamon donuts, apples, crisps, cobblers, and cinnamon rolls...
What is fall weather like where you live? It air is nice and cool, the sky is often blue, and the leaves change nicely.
What color is fall? Browns, purples, reds, and orange.
What does fall smell like? Apples, cinnamon, smoke, and straw.
Holiday shopping in fall: yes or no? Not really... I think about it and then I wait until the last minute.
If you could go anywhere in the fall, where would you go? Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island... the typical fall foliage states.
What is your favorite fall sport? I'm starting to like football... GO GIANTS!!
Do you have a favorite fall chore? I like putting u the decorations, changing the clothing over (when I don't have to organize it!) and bedding, shopping for school supplies and cool weather clothing.
What is your least favorite thing about fall? That it sometimes takes too long to get here and is over so quickly!
What is your favorite fall holiday? Thanksgiving Day.
What's your favorite kind of pie? Apple with a strudel topping.
Do you have a favorite fall book? For some reason, I like to read the Mitford books in the Autumn.
How about a favorite fall poem or quote?
"Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." - George Eliot

Here is my list for this week:
1. Finish putting up Autumn decorations and putting away Summer ones.
2. Organize seasonal clothing (again!).
3. Gather and preserve some colorful fall leaves in beeswax.
4. De-clutter all bathroom cupboards.
5. If the weather is warm, go swimming... time is running out!

There's something about September that gets me in the mood to organize. We have this wonderful little desk in our kitchen and though it is very handy, it rarely looks nice. I decided to paint the two paper organizers black (they were white), hang the chalkboard, and move my herbs inside. I really like how it turned out. Everything looks more pleasing to my eye and that's a huge motivator to work there and keep things looking nice!!
