It’s week 38 of the MRW 52 week blog challenge.  I think this week is one of my favorite topics. Seasons.  What is the Best Part of Each Season? Come let me show you!

I will start with fall since it’s right here and one of my very favorites.  I love the changing leaves, colors, pumpkins, scarecrows, decorations, sunflowers just to name a few things.

Did I mention all the awesome pumpkin flavors…pumpkin coffee, pie, truffles? Let’s not forget Apples…Apple crisp, Pie, apple dumplings and pecan is a big fall flavor too. Oh, I almost forgot sweet potatoes. MMMM

Fall also brings one of my favorite holidays

HALLOWEEN

I like winter too. Yes, I am one of the weird ones. I like cool weather. I like snow. ( i didn’t say I loved being out in it.) I like Christmas and all the lights and decorations. My Birthday is in winter.

 

I like Spring too. I like to see the flowers emerging, here the birds chirping see the squirrels frolicking and all the new life being born. The allergies I could live without. So I spent much of my spring looking out.

 

Summer, I really have to think about that. It is my least favorite month. It is too hot so I can’t get out much with my asthma. I guess I can say I like the fresh garden food, fruits, and veggies. I like to go on trips when we can afford to and this past summer I did enjoy the water park with my brother and his family.

 

I do like the fourth of July and Memorial Day cookouts.

these are the things I like best about the seasons. What are your favorites? let’s go see what the other bloggers like best!

I’m a Big Kid #MFRWauthor #favoriteholiday #Halloween #Christmas

Welcome back to MFRWauthors52weekblog challenge. We are at week 29. This week our topic is Our Favorite Holiday. Mine is a tie. I love both Halloween and Christmas. I adore decorating and doing theme dinners and having parties so these two holidays are my dream holidays. I will start with Halloween. I love fall and the colors. I always put up a new wreath sometimes one each week the last two usually more Halloween geared. I like to make decorations too. I have a table I set up in front of my house on Halloween and usually have one treat I have crafted, such as a ghost sucker or candy wrapped in cardboard tubes or a cute gift-bag.   I have three bowls that are interactive. One is a head that talks when you reach in or sings, the other two are hands that grab at you as you reach in. I usually wear a witch hat and all black. I don’t like to dress scary so I frighten small children.  I like to hang Halloween dishtowels in the house and other other decorations. Each Halloween I plan a dinner for my children and grandchildren. sometimes my sister and  her grandchildren may drop by too.  Some of the meals in the past have  been bloody bones and bloody fingers. (BBQ or Hot wings and french Fries with catsup) hosts and bats with guts and blood. ( tortilla chips cut out and guacamole and salsa I have made Jackolantern burgers and witch fingers.  Snake sandwiches, worms and eyeballs and the list goes on. Pinterest is my friend LOL.

Someone fed the grandkids after midnight they morphed into scary creatures.

 

 

 

On to Christmas. no the gift giving or receiving isn’t my favorite part. I could live without that part since it stresses me to no end buying gifts. Again I love decorating. I bring out my Christmas dishes, my holiday tablecloths and dishtowels. Sometimes i have three Christmas trees. One big one on the balcony  my white one in my office or dining room and another  fake green one in the other space. One i decorate with all my snowmen ornaments.  I love putting up lights on the patio awning some on the front porch. I also make a nice Christmas dinner with the Ham or Turkey or both, stuffing potatoes,etc. On Christmas I let the kids decide on the traditional fare or something different since by Christmas they are turkeyed out.  On Christmas eve I do a finger-food get together.  after Christmas on our first snow I always do a snowman themed dinner. The kids and grand-kids get a kick.

So as you see I love to decorate and do themed dinners. Let’s go see what the other author’s favorite Holidays are
