Favourite things to do in the autumn

 Another topic which is heavily affected by coronavirus, sadly, as we yet again are under tight restrictions. So much of what I enjoy doing has been curtailed this year by either my own illness or the world at large. So what do I enjoy doing in the autumn?

While there's still some daylight, I enjoy going for walks in the evening. This is less likely at the moment as I'm in recovery, but we try to get a short walk just to get out in the air. What is more likely is my husband's favourite hobby - taking night shots with his camera. We drive out to remote areas which aren't affected by street lights and take photos of the night sky. We even got a shooting star once.

The other things I used to like in autumn were going out to dinner and the cinema. I don't fancy watching a film in a steamed-up mask but we can, at the moment, still eat out if we're careful. In fact, health permitting, we're planning to visit one of our favourite restaurants this weekend as a belated birthday celebration for me. Here's hoping the rules won't have changed by then.

So what do you like to do in the autumn?

    1. Since our lockdown has just been increased, it's one of the few things we can still do!

  2. I like the walks, too. I'd love to get to a restaurant and the movies, but we're not permitted to do that yet here, so takeout and the television works for now. Good post!

    1. Yes, we're definitely ordering more takeout than we used to...

  4. For our long walks, we go hiking in the woods. I love the spicy smell of autumn, and crunching the fallen, dried leaves as we walk.

    We're still avoiding restaurants--even more so, now that not wearing masks has become a militant political statement.

    1. We haven't had as many anti-maskers here, fortunately.
