  1. My favorite thing to do in the fall is go to football games and tailgate parties. This coming Saturday will make 3 Saturdays in a row for that. I also do a lot of sewing in the fall because that's when I get into rush mode to finish a bunch of gifts for Christmas. But this year we're doing some remodeling so that's cutting into my sewing time. Yikes! Better get busy!

  50. My favorite fall to do thing is raking leaves. I love being out in the crisp fall air raking. Of course it helps if some little ones come by & jump in the leaf pile! Those FQ's are very fallish - thanks for the chance to win them.

  52. I love making homemade chunky applesauce when the temperatures outside first gets cooler. I can just open the back kitchen doors, let the cool air in...perfection. I freeze a container of it and serve it at Thanksgiving or Christmas or some snowy gray day in February and remember the day it was first prepared with the cool crispness in the air.
