Has it really been a month already? Fall bucket list update

Glorious tree in my former home back yard
I limited my list to 10 this time in hopes of actually getting things done and I have checked some things off.

Now check out the other updates in the links below! Thanks, Leslie, for organizing the link-up.

- Make the rounds of elderly relatives and cousins in person, by phone or writing. 3 meals with elderly relatives.
