Monday Listicles

Thanks to Stasha for hosting Monday Listicles.

This week's topic is...


(Why must it always be 10?)

9. October baseball...not that the Jays have seen that in awhile but I still remember Joe Carter...

8. Cool nights & crisp mornings - here in the sunny south, weather becomes near perfect with the exception of the occasional hurricane.

7.New beginnings - start of the school year for me - teaching freshmen not only about the material but           answering ummmm...interesting questions about the transition to College life.

6. Birthdays galore - Heather, Liam & Erik all have fall birthdays - obviously the our family likes to deliver serious 'gifts' the previous Christmas/New Years.  

5. Fantasy hockey - though this year it seems the only hockey I will see is in my fantasy's.  Perhaps fantasizing about hockey will help avoid delivering any more of the 'gifts' mentioned in the previous point.

4. Chili - the great fall tradition.  Yummy!

3. Poppies - It is a bitter sweet but I always remember to read In Flanders Fields on 11/11.  I am always surprised that the poppy tradition is not followed in the USA.

2. Rain.  I look forward to the rain.  Just listening to the rhythm of drops hitting various surfaces and watching the lightening dance across the sky. It creates a ballet of nature that can be unparalleled.

1.  Colors - though they are not as lovely here as they were growing up in Canada.  It is one of the things that I do miss - that and proper poutine.
