Autumn Manifesto

Inspired by both last day of may and in other words..., I present my:

Autumn Manifesto

1. On chilly days, I will remember to drink tea.

2. I will invite people into my home to “Share the Harvest” -- my theme this season.

3. I will put thought into our meals to make them both tasty and comforting.

4. I will place pumpkins and fall decorations throughout the house – and keep tweaking it all season to keep it fun.

5. I will use pumpkin and apples freely in my cooking and baking.

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies

6. I will light my candles and little lamps as dusk falls to make my home cozy feeling.

7. I will visit Farmers' Markets more frequently.

8. I will pay more attention to the journaling of my life (this blog).

9. I will use my Silhouette Machine.

10. I will let my gym see my face more often.

11. I will complete my 10-day Give (which I forgot about the first time around).

12. I will go outside every day just to breathe.

13. I will buy some tights. And look for a new coat.

14. I will use my stationery.

15. I will trust God and my husband as I discover grace.


  1. Such GREAT things! I want to steal some!

    You have inspired me. I needed a fresh outlook.. and you gave it to me. Though I didn't mention it in my manifesto.. I will also be trying to blog more often. If I hadn't discovered facebook, my blog would be packed by now..

  4. What an inspirational list! Thanks for sharing it!

  5. Deb Satrang10:24 AM've inspired me to get off this computer and get some autumn decorations put out. I've been slow at it this year. Today is the day!!! Thanks!

  6. That's my girl! The Queen of the Autumn breeze. To all her readers: Dorothy is exceptional in the home. She always creates a warm, festive, and welcoming home. I am blessed to be her husband I can tell God is merciful, for He let me be married to her. My home is a castle of grace, loveliness, and a feminine touch. If you like her blog, you would love her. Her blog pales in beauty to her actual loveliness.

  7. Great list!!! The decorations are beautiful!!!

  8. Ready for an update! (As IF, I should be talking....)

    How did the 10-day give go?

    I need to update, too!

  10. All wonderful ways to celebrate this time of year!

  11. Great goals for a delightful fall full of fun pumpkin decorations, delightful tea and cookies, and spiritual growth - sounds lovely! :)

  12. Thank you for sharing your manifesto. I think I need to write one of my own, and will probably use a couple of your items! I do love the fall season.
