Hump-Day Top 5 List

This weekend is shaping up to be the perfect autumn weekend here in the Twin Cities. Since fall is my favorite season, I thought we could devote this week's top 5 list to enumerating your top 5 favorite things about autumn. Here are mine:

1. The smell of fallen leaves on the ground and wood smoke in the air

2. Sugar maples turning astoundingly gorgeous colors

3. A pleasant anticipation of activity, left over from years of starting school in autumn

4. Temperatures cooling down enough that I can wear long sleeves/pants again

5. Harvest festivals, especially in apple or pumpkin orchards

What's on your list?
