It’s fall!! At least officially on the calendar. And I am so excited! I love autumn – everything about it, even the rainy days. Fall means more fires, crunchy leaves underfoot, trips to the orchard and pumpkin patch, ciders and spooky reading and scary movies – I could go on and on. I am sure I will talk about it much more before winter…

Today is the birthday of Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman). We are celebrating him today, by reading a few books, visiting an orchard, and of course, eating apple pie. I find his life and personal philosophy interesting. When I was younger I always thought he was fictitious, like Paul Bunyan then of course learned that he was indeed a real person. Anyway, I could probably go on for a while about Johnny Appleseed too. Lol.

Books! Last week I read:

This was such a great read. I still haven’t read Gichigami Hearts- it always takes me a while to get to books on my Kindle rather than physical books. But, I do plan to start it this week. My Kindle is charged up and everything! I also picked this book up too! I need something scary, and a reviewer on Goodreads said this book is like Heathers meets The Craft meets Frankenstein, which makes it sound amazing! ( I LOVED Heathers and The Craft in high school and then Frankestein in college when I understood it more)

Posted Last Week:

Franken Fest

Field Trip: Fossil Park, OH

After Dark Musings

Watching:

We are still watching Agatha Christie’s Marple (BritBox) which is fantastic. We also finished LuLaRich (Amazon Prime) which was fascinating. We also started Owl House on Disney+, which we thought Wyatt might like but we like it better than he does.

And that is about it from around here! What’s going on in your world?

  1. Fall is my favorite season, even though fall here is a far cry from the fall you experience. Our fall is probably what you would consider late summer.

    Johnny Appleseed is such an interesting figure. Have you heard about the grownup book, Appleseed, by Matt Bell? I am hoping to read it soon.

    We are considering BritBox. My husband loves mysteries, and my cousin just recommended The Cafe on BritBox. Maybe we will do it next month.

    1. Yeah ours is pretty chilly here! It was 49 degrees out when I woke up this morning. I was like, well, fall is here!

      Oo no I haven’t! But now I for sure want to read it. I just read today that he was a Swedenbourgist. I didn’t even know that was a thing.

      We love BritBox. We have BritBox, Netflix, and Amazon Prime and out of the three, we watch BritBox the most often. 🙂

  2. Fallis here! It got cool here last week a few times at night ha ha. I need to get some cider soon…

    I remember being fascinated with Paul Bunyan. And I always loved those big tools up at Hartwick Pines- always made me think of him. 🙂 Have you guys been there, up by Grayling?

  3. It actually feels a little bit like fall here which is amazing! I’m not sure how long it will last but usually here we don’t get fall feelings until late October at the earliest. I kind of always associated Johnny Appleseed with Paul Bunyon as well and really even though I did figure out he was a real person (relatively recently) I know almost nothing about him. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Ugh me too!! I am not a fan of summer heat. Lol.

      I am sure some of what I learned at least was legend, some real. Like I am unsure if he really had a pet wolf that he saved from a trap? I guess that could actually happen. I think I will have to read more about him.

  4. I like fall much better when it’s sunny! There has been quite the run of cold and rain but things may be on the upswing. I took a painting class today, so that’s good! It sounds like you’re doing well! Yay!
