Fall is just around the corner!

Fall is almost here! Well, it seems like that due to the leaves changing color on the maple leaves (due to lack of rain) and cool, 15°C (59°F) rainy days. Nothing compared to the 30°C (86°F) felt almost a week ago. It seems that we finally got a taste of actual summer before it quickly disappeared to be replaced by fall. It is almost the time to start bundling up against the chilly wind and sip on some Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, since that drink seems to be back on the menu! What is not to love about the fall, the crisp air, scarves, changing colors, being thankful, remembering, pumpkin pie, falling leaves, cozy sweaters, Halloween; just to name a few! So shake off that old blanket and settle down for a cozy picnic in a meadow surrounded by fall colors. Or maybe, a photo shoot against the backdrop of the colorful autumn trees. Enjoy it while it lasts because winter is coming, and it sounds like it is going to be a crazy winter.

The Sun Sets

The sun sets on this fall Autumn day

And soon the Autumn rains will come

Where does our sweet sorrow lie

How do we past the days

When the winter chill sets into our bones

Or when the wind starts howling

like a pack of ravishing wolves

The leaves start changing into brilliant shades

and yet the sun still falls day by day



Things to do in the Fall!

What to do when you are bored in the free time away from university or other aspects of your life is a hard decision to make. Sometimes they are non-existent or there is a million things at once that is happening and you want to do them all. When the weather is yucky, it is always nice to curl up with a good book and a blanket or hit the mall to go shopping. What is there to do when the weather is beautiful? Well here is a list of things one can do outside in the fall when the weather is gorgeous.

  1. Picnic! Even though the summer is gone, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a nice get together! When the ground or the picnic table is dry, just bundle up a bit and enjoy a nice day with friends!
  2. Pumpkin Patch! Corn Maze! Hit the local pumpkin patch or corn maze for some fun, giggles and an overall good time! Put on some gumboots since the ground could be muddy since it is a farm after all, and farms are known for being muddy!
  3. Photoshoot! If you have a camera, or a phone it is always a good time to get good shots with friends under the golden, reddish trees, throwing leaves into the air!
  4. Coffee shop! Hit the local coffee shop for some fall drinks and change up the scenery, get outdoors and explore the city!
  5. Museum, Beach, etc.! Hit the beach or museum, or explore the city! Find an interesting new store or go to a place where you have never been before! Just go have fun!
