Autumn is upon us and we have found a lovely post to keep you happy and active as the days cool. Why not make your autumn bucket list this weekend?

Reblogged from Catch A Single Thought:

I saw this idea a while ago on Facebook and couldn’t wait to try it out once I’d finally accepted that summer was over!  I’m not sure where it originates from, despite googling it, so if anyone does know, please tell so I can give full credit.

To make our autumn bucket list we cut out leaves in the typically autumnal colours of orange and yellow and my Other Half diligently drew a tree on the side of a large cardboard box we had and cut it out.  I painted a remaining side of the box white, to give it something to rest on and then sat down with Meg to talk about what we could put on our list…

To read the rest and see the photos please follow this link to Catch A Single Thought. Our Nature Detectives site also has plenty of ideas for autumn to help fill your bucket list with fun activities.

    Thank you, Kay. I love these autumnal things-to-do lists, though I’d just like to say let’s remember they’re not only for children or in a family group. Walking alone in nature, especially at this quieter, cooler, time of year, is very healing for mind and body. Smelling the woodland dampness; hearing that particular autumnal robin-song; watching skeins of geese high in the morning sky; looking at the colours of leaves, and fungi…. breathe deeply, breathe it all in, breathe and rejoice! Seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness indeed (thank you, Keats!).
