    My favorite fall activity is getting the barn stocked with good hay for the rescue pony. I like to know we’re all set for the winter and that I don’t have to run around like a madwoman in February, only to end up with something that’s dusty or hard for a 35 year old lad with no teeth to eat.

    My birthday is also in the fall (today actually!), and I always do something with my family. I love having them all together and am humbled that they do so on/around my birthday.
    I think even more than the last, I love going to a book convention with friends I’ve stayed in touch with for 5+ years. We pick a convention that works for everyone and have a long weekend of crazy fun and talking books and everything under the sun.

    Thanks for the giveaway, Jane!

    My favorite activity in October is definitely dressing up for Halloween (we have so many Halloween parties here in NYC) and attending the annual parade (which sadly hasn’t been held in the last few years).

    For the first time ever, my family and I went pumpkin picking in Maryland and that was a great and new experience. Also, I enjoy the availability of pumpkin food and drinks everywhere during this time of the year. :)

    Fall is all about cooking to me also. Soups and hearty stock pot meals. I bake more, simmer more and read more. It’s like sleeping in (which I also do more of). Fall recharges me and it’s my favorite season.

    My favorite fall activity is celebrating my birthday with pumpkin pie and whipped cream. I always have that instead of cake. Since it’s the day after Halloween, it’s always tied in with that holiday too, which has always been my favorite one. I really try to buy candy to hand out for Halloween that I don’t like that much, so I don’t have to worry about eating it. :D

    Fall for me is about getting the last veggies out of the faltering garden, running and biking through my lovely little village, watching the leaves turn red and gold, and enjoying the respite from the summer’s heat. (And dreading the cold.)

    This being ABQ Balloon Fiesta week, mornings include a sky full of hot air balloons. And this being fall in New Mexico, the smell of roasting green chile.
