Things to Do

Another first for #BLOGTOBER14... I feel confident that I have never posted on a Sunday. If I am wrong, please feel free to keep that to yourself, nobody likes a know it all.

Day Five: My Fall Bucket List

I realized today that I have never created a bucket list before. Where does the term "bucket list" even come from? I don't really get it. Nevertheless, I love a good list and I embraced today's topic. In no particular order, here is my Fall list of things to do!

  • Enjoy the outdoors while weather still permits. I would definitely like to get in as many outdoor workouts as I possibly can. Basement workouts are really not my thing.
  • Use a real camera instead of the damn iPhone. I love the iPhone for conveniently snapping photos of moments that you didn't realize where going to happen. But, I need to be a grown up and use my Cannon when I am purposefully taking pictures (especially for the blog).
  • Bake an apple pie. I've never done it before and I love me some pie. Enough said.
  • Buy a pumpkin from a farmer. Last year I didn't get one and the year before that I bought one from the grocery store. Such shame. I don't even know where the pumpkin came from.. could have been an import.
  • Watch a scary movie. I love, love, love, scary movies. The thing of it is, it is so incredibly hard to find a good one that is actually scary. The last horrifying movie I saw was "The Strangers" and when was that from? 2008.
  • Donate to a food bank. I really like the feeling of giving and helping people... did that sound like I donate for myself? Anyway, I think we should all try to give as often as possible, but fall seems like the best time of year to really make sure it gets done. I hate the idea of kids not enjoying fall as much as they should.
  • Go on a hayride. Never done it, really want to. Hopefully it doesn't give me an asthma attack.
  • Decorate my front porch for the fall season. I am talking mums, corn stalks, and pumpkins. Taking the season and my decorating skills, all. the. way. Seriously, pictures to come.
  • Make chili in my crockpot. Yum, chili!

Helene in Between


  1. Use a real camera. YES! me too! I use my phone camera for EVERYTHING! It's horrible! And it is the perfect weather for good chili!

  2. I love your food bank idea! And, I for sure want to bake an apple pie, too! I would love to decorate for fall! I have never done that before & since we live in China, nothing is really available for us to, but one day, if we move back to the States, I'm so decorating our front porch!

  3. Amen to using a real camera! I think to bring mine with me when I'm specifically looking for things to photograph. But it would be so handy to have day to day. Though, the iPhone 6 camera is quite badass as far as camera-phones go!
