Fall has always been my favorite season of the year. I like things about the other seasons, don't get me wrong. I like the holidays in Winter, I like the new life in Spring, and I like ... er ... air conditioning in Summer? No, no...the long days in Summer. But Fall combines comfortable weather, good available food, and some pretty decent holidays itself with the three Harvest festivals I celebrate as a Pagan.

So what joys are coming to you this Fall? I present some over the lovely orange aroma below.

Speaking of good food, my husband has already created some masterpieces of culinary art. For example:


Bison Arm Roast Stew by *Windthin on deviantART

Featuring naturally low-fat bison, purple and yellow carrots, and zucchini, which we're finding we really like, this meal was a great hit at our house and ended up with no leftovers.

We've also found beautiful things to look at outside, from water droplets in a spiderweb

to bees on thistles

and even a blue dragonfly.

So, what beauty and joy is there in your Harvest? Do you have a garden bringing you fresh vegetables? Enjoying the cooler weather on your walks? Please share with us!

The scale gave me a 140 this morning. You know, I'll take it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
