Thursday Thirteen: Fall

It is November today, so I thought I would share 13 things I really like about fall:

1) The trees turn ginger, an excellent color.
2) Windy days outside so I get the crazies!
3) Cold, dark rainy days so I can take a nap with Momma.
4) Momma's pumpkin pie. It is pumpkiny, creamy, eggy goodness with crunchie crust...mmm...I love it with Momma leaves it on the table so I can lick it. She always calls me "Jimmy No" when she sees me doing that, though.
5) When Momma changes the clocks so we get to spend an extra hour snoozing in bed.
6) The big Thanksgiving feast. Momma fills the table with so much yummy goodness, and sometimes the Beans who come over sneak me some of it under the table!
7) Pumpkin bread.
8) When the wool blanket comes out.
9) Leaves on the ground, blowing around. They give me the crazies, too.
10) When the stupid mousies try to come inside because it's cold. It's funny to see Coco get all worked up when she thinks she smells one. Every once in a while we find one and give it to Momma as a present.
11) Pumpkins out on the porch. They smell very interesting.
12) Pumpkin pie. It's worth mentioning twice.
13) Looking forward to that turkey...it's better than Christmas!

What do you guys like about fall?

Our clocks went back last week here in Germany, so that's not a November thing for us. And Canadian Thanksgiving is in October. Otherwise, that's a great list of things to like about November!

We like every single one of your things except ML doesn't cook or bake, but she sure finds a way to eat all those foods! And share with us, of course.
You will like our T13 because it is about our dog.

Fall is not very different than Summer or Winter where I live. But it does get a little bit cooler so I can go strollering more often!

Tybalt said...

Clocks go back one hour this weekend! That extra hour of sleep with mommy will be soooo nice! Great list, Jimmy Joe!

Captain Jack and Dante said...

Dante loves it when the leaves turn ginger too and we both loved it the other day when Mommy got the "Biscuit Making Blanket." Something about that blanket just makes our toes curl we love it so much! Fall is our favorite time of year!!

Our clocks moved forward an hour last weekend and SS is extra cranky over the lost sleep. Pumpkin bread and soup are yummy!!! Send some my way. No Thanksgiving here in Oz either! How unfair that I have to miss out on some much.

oooo what a wonderful list Jimmy Joe. Don't forget open window for us indoor only kitties. I love cooler weather cause it means open windows so I can hear and smell all those birdies.....

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Turkey, Pumpkin pie, an extra hour of snuggling and turkey. Oh, did we mention turkey?

Pablo said...

Leaves and wind give me the crazies, too! It's spring here in Australia, and our clocks have just gone forward, which means more sunlight in the evenings! I help Kate in the garden in the evening. She's doing a lot of weeding lately, and it's my job to pounce on the weeds as she throws them onto the grass. It's a very important job, cause there are a lot of invisible monsters hiding in the garden!

Kavan said...

Oh, those are such good reasons to love November! I love pumpkin too, although I haven't yet tried some of those pumpkin dishes!

Jimmy No sounds very adorable and cute~!!!
I like fall because it's meaning the winter is coming and I can have my own heater~!!!

Sunny's Mommy said...

I like the leaves turning color. That's about it :-p

Sunny loves to watch the leaves coming down. He likes watching that almost as much as he likes to watch snow falling heavily.

Thanks for reminding us about the clocks, hee, hee. Pumpkin pie - I'd go for that (Moe) I wouldn't (Mindy). We both like turkey - a good reason to like fall.
