Ode to Fall

I love fall, but here in Louisiana I don't not get the full experience of the beautiful colors. I was raised in Chicago and always loved the beautiful colors, but most of all walking through the leaves, hearing them crunch under my feet. I was married in the fall and my mom asked the people across the street to not rake their leaves so we could use the big pine for photos. Sigh, I love the fall.

                                      🍂   Ode to Fall  🍂

                                             🍂 Fall, what can I say about the fall? 🍂
                                                 I love the way the air feels as the changes begin
                                                 The colors slowly drifting down with the wind
                                                 The heat of the summer gone for now
                                                 Outdoor splendor beckons it's fall

                                              🍂The beautiful colors surround my soul  🍂
                                                 Their awesome splendor I sit in awe
                                                 Soup on the stove delights the senses
                                                 A cup of hot tea my soul it quenches
                                                 Outdoor splendor beckons it's fall

                                            🍂 A walk through the forest revels the changes 🍂 
                                                Crunching leaves under foot echoes through out
                                                The glow of a bonfire through out the night
                                                No more chasing fireflies in flight
                                                Outdoor splendor beckons it's fall

Fall is the perfect time to go hiking in the woods. Make a big pot of soup with the whole family. Build a bonfire, if able, and enjoy conversations, stories  and music with family and friends. Visit a local farm and see what types of fresh produce can be obtained. If you have kids or grandchildren visit a pumpkin patch many have other activities for children to do. See what types of fall events are available in your area and attend one even if it is alone. Fall is a great time to get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors.

The following recipe and image are from another blog I have, but no longer blog on. These taste very similar to potato pancakes.

           Spaghetti Squash & Quinoa Fritter Pancakes


Cooked spaghetti squash
4 Free range eggs
3 Tbsp gluten free flour
Organic shredded cheese
Seasonings: Sea salt, dill, pepper, chives, all purposes seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder

Combine all ingredients, melt coconut oil or organic/vegan butter in a pan. Form into patties and cook until brown on both sides.

I learned a trick watching the Food Network. Cook a small portion first to make sure it is seasoned they way you want it. 

Take this time to enjoy the beautiful colors, smells and events that fall brings our way. Most of all be sure to live a natural life for a better quality of one.

  1. I love that poem and you are so right - autumn (fall) walks in the wooods are just the best!

  2. I love fall too! Sad you don't get to experience it as much. We get it in MN but it is interrupted by snow a bit, haha!

    1. Don't mind snow, kind of miss it. Thanks for stopping by.
