I really need to make a list of all the Three Thing Thursdays I’ve done. When I try to come up with an idea each week, I can’t remember if I’ve already done it or if I’ve thought about it. Sometimes, I’ve even written the post before realizing that I’ve already written about it before, haha.
Today is such a perfect fall day. It’s been cloudy with some light rain on and off all day and the temperature is perfect for wearing a hoodie and jeans. This is my very favorite time of year, by far, and it never fails to lift my spirits. With today really feeling like fall, it put me in a fall mood… so I thought I’d write about three things I hope to do this season.
1. Bury a time capsule with my family.
I bought a time capsule a long time ago (literally probably four years ago) and we still haven’t put the things together to bury in it. With my kids so grown up, I don’t want to waste another year without making this time capsule. I think it will be fun to do together. I have no idea when we’ll open it — we’ll have to find a date or event — but it’s fun to think about what we can put in there!
2. Watch football.
This is something I never expected to be interested in in a million years! Jeanie taught me the basics over the summer and when I watched my first game a few weeks ago I really got into it. I’ve watched two more games since then and found myself acting like a “real” football fan — covering my eyes (but peeking a little) at the really nervous spots, yelling “Go, Go!”, jumping with excitement, and, that’s me, I’m in tears
a little bit when a rookie caught his first NFL touchdown.
I’m writing this as I wait for the Lions game to start, actually! Jerry and Noah went to a wrestling event and Eli is at work. I find it so funny that I’m home alone and *willingly* watch football. I’ve lost my mind! Hahaha.
|I don’t remember the reason behind that family photo in 2017, but I was told to wear a Lions shirt.
3. Go apple picking.
I feel like I’m probably the only person in Michigan who hasn’t picked apples in an orchard (or maybe I have and I just don’t remember?). I know Jerry would like to go, and we will
power invite the children to go too. And of course, I romanticize the idea of making applesauce, baking an apple pie for my dad, and maybe making a vegan apple cobbler.
I wish we had this fall weather all year round. I hope we have many of those days this fall!
