DC exchange Q3

Autumn has now officially begun here in the States!! What is your favorite thing about Autumn/Fall? Why?

I love the crisp weather and sleeping with the windows open. I love the turn in the leaves and seeing all the trees in all their beautiful colors. I love the food - the apples, the squash, the home canned harvest goods - it makes me wish all over again that we had a garden.

For me autumn feels like a natural place to do a thorough cleaning and nesting of my house in order to prepare for winter and more time indoors. I love getting things cleaned out of closets, getting out my sweaters and flannel pajamas.

I also love football season. We are redskins fans and we all don our sportswear every Sunday for the games. It is a lot of fun. I wish we lived near college football. I really loved those BYU football games - and we could afford those. Redskins games are just out of our price range.

It's hard to picture any of the Scott girls as sports fans. I bet you guys all look adorable in your gear!

I wish you were nearby as I have been harvesting tomatoes and I think Ben and Tara must be getting tired of so many as I don't eat them.

I think it's amazing that you like football. I never have and quite frankly consider it to be a gladiator sport. Football actaully puts me to sleep...where's my knitting?

I think summer is my favorite season since I hate to be cold more than anything. Autumn, however brings with it sweater season and an early opening for hot chocolate time. Mmhhh....I also live for the mountains in the fall. We started going for mountain drives, or just dropping everything to go play in a park mountain just so I can enjoy the beautiful colors of the leaves and the mountains together.

I miss driving down the Long Island Expressway in the fall, or the drive to Boston this time of year is absolutely beautiful. Makes it almost okay to not have mountains close-by.
