...crunch crunch crunch: leaves are starting to carpet the sidewalks....

In an effort to get back into the world of blogging {did I ever really belong in the world of blogging?!?!?} I am following BlogHer's NaBloPoMo this month. 

I have tried something like this before...and fizzled after about day two.

So here's topic...

Crunch crunch crunch: leaves are starting to carpet the sidewalks. Tell us about your favorite autumnal sound.

I found this ironic in two ways...

a) leaves are starting to carpet the sidewalks...well, maybe in the northeast or something.  Here in Saint Louis, it is currently 81 degrees (at 8:30 at night!) and we are in for severe storms {possibly tornadoes} tonight.  It was 90 degrees today, and is expected to be about 86 tomorrow.  My air conditioner is STILL running.  That being said, I saw a few random, blah, brown leaves {we have no trees, but our neighbor has one} on my lawn today.  Like five leaves.  The weather is supposed to turn cooler Thursday evening into Friday, but for now...I can't think much about fall leaves.

b) favorite sound of fall???  What the heck kind of question is that???  Does a season have a sound???  I suppose so {the crunching of said leaves, perhaps}  I am not sure if I ever gave it much thought.  I love the chirping of the birds in spring, the splash of the pool in the summer and heck, even the silence after a snowfall in the winter {you know me, finding ANYTHING good about winter is amazing in and of itself} but fall???  Fall is a wonderful time of the year...the colors; the crisp, clear blue sky and cool air; the holidays; but what sound makes fall, fall????

For me...I suppose I love the sound football.

Weird, right??? 

Not really.  I love the fight songs, I love the cheers, I love the crowd, I even love the announcers.  My heart lies with the Mizzou Tigers but I also am fond of the Florida Gators {thanks to Big Daddy, and before that a goofy ex-boyfriend}.

 There is just something about the combination of all things fall, and watching a game on a Saturday afternoon that just makes me happy.  As happy as I can be knowing winter is just. around. the. corner.

What is your favorite sound of fall???

{love to all}
