Things to Do When You’re Bored in Autumn ♡

Hey, everyone! My name is Q’Zion, and welcome to The Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen. Although for many of us, fall is still here (and as gorgeous as ever) it won’t be long before winter starts creeping in to try to steal the spotlight. Cold weather might make it easy to want to do nothing but snuggle up on the couch and sleep in. But, autumn is such a beautiful–and not to mention super fun–time of year; there’s so much to do! So it only makes sense that we make the most of all that autumn has to offer.

Today, I’m sharing the ultimate list of things to do when you’re bored in autumn. And I’m positive that with these tips, you’ll never be bored in the fall, again! So without further ado, let’s get started!

Visit a pumpkin patch – If you ask me, pumpkins are the classic symbol of autumn and its beauty. So what better thing to do this fall then run through a pumpkin patch? You could even carve the ones that you pick once you return home.

Bake an apple pie – The sweet, sugary essence of a homemade pie is perfect for that homey feel that fall is all about. Therefore, any fall dessert–including apple pie–is the perfect way to spend some time with an indulgent treat as your reward.

Take photographs – From the fierce yet comforting colors, to the way leaves drift to the ground, October and November have got to be some of the most gorgeous months of the year. And getting a few breath-taking shots can help you savor all of your fall memories for a lifetime.

Rake the leaves . . . and then jump into the pile! – Okay, so maybe doing a chore is not the most fun thing to do when your bored. But I think most of us can agree that during the fall, there’s an exception. So after you’ve rounded up all the leaves that have scattered across your backyard, take a dive in! Just make sure you’re prepared to rake the leaves all over again.

Go camping – The weather in autumn is the perfect mix of summer and winter; it’s not too hot and not too cold. And that means that any activity involving the outdoors is perfect for this time of year! Camping is a fantastic example!

Run a 1k (or a 5k if you want to be daring) – And speaking of the outdoors, some tasks are a little more challenging than others, but even more so in the fall. Running a mile (or maybe even 5 miles) is the perfect way to challenge yourself on a fall afternoon.

Knit a scarf – Whether you knit often or you’ve never tried it in your life, a warm scarf is the perfect way to prepare for the late autumn and winter months. Although knitting can take time and patience, a handmade scarf can make for a great autumn souvenir.

Drink hot chocolate in front of your fireplace – On the days when it’s a little chilly outside, sweet, warm beverages (including tea, coffee, and of course hot chocolate) are the perfect way to keep yourself warm and cozy. And I heard that if you have a fireplace, drinking hot cocoa is a next-level experience!

Go to a corn maze – Although I’ve never went inside one myself, I’ve heard that for many people, corn mazes are the perfect way to tease your brain, run around in circles, and make everlasting memories while doing so. And if you ask me, that makes a corn maze just the right place to go in the autumn.

Get cozy with your comfort novel – For all my bookworms out there, no fall activity compares to snuggling up on the couch with your most comforting novel in hand.

Have a fall movie marathon – Most people have at least one favorite movie that they watch every fall. Why not make a compilation of all of your favorite movies to watch in autumn, and have a movie night with your family and friends (or independently, if that’s what you prefer?) You may even find a few new movies to add to your favorites!


When autumn comes around, there are so many things to do it’s nearly impossible to be bored! And with the endless amount of fall activities (some of which I’ve stated here today) I hope you’ll be able to make this autumn your best one yet! Please let me know in the comments, what are your favorite things to do outside in the autumn. Also, which idea on this list did you like the most?

Have a happy and healthy weekend, everyone! God bless you all and I’ll catch you next time! Peace in! ♡

My favorite aspects of autumn ♡

Hey, y’all! This is Q’Zion, and welcome to my blog, The Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen! ♡

Spring, summer, fall, and winter. The four seasons. Each one is unique in their own way; their own special events, holidays, traditions, and other characteristics that make up 1/4 of each year. While I love each one for their own reasons, autumn and winter have always had a special place in my heart. And since we’re practically in the middle of fall (already, I know) I want to explain some of the reasons why autumn is one of my favorite seasons. So without further ado, let’s get this party started!

1.) Warm and cozy colors

There’s something about medium green plants transforming into gorgeous orange, golden rod, and burgundy leaves as they float to the ground that’s so satisfying. All seasons have an aspect of nature that makes them unique, but the eye catching colors of autumn make the season stand out like no other.

2.) The spectacular weather

For me, warm weather is the least desirable weather to have. I mean, I’d rather be a little chilly than sweaty and uncomfortable, do you know what I mean? And while I love summer and winter, with both of those seasons, you either get one or the other side of weather. But when autumn comes around, the temperature is the perfect combination. Not too hot. Not too cold. Just how I like it.

3.) That homey reading atmosphere

By now, it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of all things literature. I’ll do it just about any place, at any time of the day, and obviously in any season. But there’s something about fall vibes that makes me want to read even more. And any bookworm who has spent a fall night cuddled up on the couch with their favorite snack and a comfort novel knows what I mean.

4.) One of my favorite holidays – Thanksgiving

I wouldn’t be the same person if it wasn’t for my awesome family. And during the holidays at the end of the year, we always partake in the tradition of having family gatherings, as often as possible. Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity for me to recap what and who I’m thankful for and blessed with, eat mouth-watering food, and do all the other autumn things I love with the people I love. There’s not many things in this world that are better than that.

5.) Photography is thebomb.com

Photography is one of my other hobbies that I don’t talk about as often, but I adore taking photos of sceneries, especially in the afternoon or just before a sunset. And if we’re being completely honest, autumn’s gorgeous colors makes it the perfect time to go on a photography splurge.

6.) The yummy food

Technically, the comfort of fall horderves goes hand-in-hand with Thanksgiving, but I still wanted to include it because autumn is certainly not the same me without them. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy eating a soup, a piece of turkey, or a pumpkin pie on an autumn afternoon? (Seriously though, I’m super curious!) Autumn food is definitely another thing that makes fall like no other.

7.) Napping paradise

As I mentioned earlier, the weather in autumn is as close as it could get to perfect. The sun isn’t usually out too early (or too bright, when it does peek out from the clouds) which makes it easier to take a power nap or sleep in without feeling like you’ve missed out on half of a day. And since I’m homeschooled, I take quite a bit of naps, so that’s a bonus!

8.) Simple and chic fashion

When it comes to fashion, I am all for finding outfits that are both stylish and comfy. And from classic cardigans to knee high boots, there is so much wiggle room to play with when it comes to autumn fashion.

9.) The decorations

From pumpkins, to candles, to fairy lights, to throw pillows, there are so many creative yet comforting ways to decorate for fall, both on the inside and outside of our homes. I think that autumn decor is the perfect way to set that homey, timeless vibe inside your home, which is perfect not only for fall, but also the preparation for the transition into winter.

10.) Being outdoors

When it comes to autumn, doing any fun fall activity outdoors just makes my day. There’s so much to do this time of year that it’s hard to make an excuse not to go outside. And with the awesome aspects of fall (many of which I have mentioned in this list) it’s kind of hard to do nothing when there’s so much fun we can have right outside our door.


Most of the time, it would take longer posts like this a little while for me to configure. But when it comes to fall, there is so much to love that it’s easy to find reasons why it’s so amazingly great! Please tell me YOUR favorite season(s) down below in the comments? Also, what’s your favorite aspect of autumn and/or the season that you like the most? I’m looking forward to everybody’s responses!

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! Don’t forget that regardless of what you may be going through, we are all beautiful and wonderfully made. And that’s something we can all be thankful to God for! Peace in, y’all! ~ Q’Zion ♡

7 Ways to Get Cozy This Fall ♡

Hey, everyone! This is Q’Zion, and welcome to The Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen. I’ve got really good news; autumn has finally arrived! I don’t know about you guys, but fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. From the gorgeous warm colors, to the perfect temperature–not too hot, and not too cold–what’s not to love?

But although it’s no question that fall is a wonderful time of year, it can be difficult to find ways to transition from one season to another. As a result, today I decided to give you all some ideas for how you can start making the most of this autumn. Let’s get into it!

Bring Out the Blankets

If you live in an area that tends to get cold at this time of year, it’s probably a smart idea to go ahead and find ways to stay warm, during your autumn planning. Not only are blankets, a comfy way to stay warm, but they also make for a relaxing fall night; especially with a snack or book in hand.

Pumpkin it Up!

Now, there are a lot of things that scream autumn–some of which are included in the remainder of this list–but one of the first things that come to my mind are pumpkins! They’re bright, earthily sweet, and most of all, perfect for decorating. So don’t be afraid to decorate the majority of your house with these large, orange enhancements! It is fall, after all!

Candles, Candles, Candles . . . and Even More Candles

I mean . . . do we really need much of an explanation, here? Candles are the perfect way to add a little brightness to any room on a dark autumn night with their crisp yet comforting designs. Plus, the fact that they have delectable scents–especially when they’re fall themed–make them even more attractive as an option for decoration.

Have a Movie Marathon

One of the best ways to past time while cuddling up on the couch is to have a family movie night. There’s just something about watching comedies on an autumn night with a mug of warm, hot chocolate in hand. It’s a comfy, delicious, and timeless tradition that’s the perfect way to get cozy in the season of fall.

Bake Your Favorite Fall Dessert

Speaking of delicious, desserts are a must-have in most households when the end of the year comes around; they’re like the icing on the cake when it comes to holidays. So why not get into the Thanksgiving and Christmas spirit early with your favorite pie, cookies, cupcakes, bars, or whatever type of dessert is your favorite for fall!?! Not only will this be some extra inspiration to get in the kitchen, but you could also spend some quality time with family and friends, while doing so!

Switch Out Your Wreath–or Add One

All year long, me and Goodmommy are constantly switching out the wreath on our front door for every season—and sometimes, even more if we want to spice things up. In my opinion, they just make your home seem that much more inviting with a little burst of color. And although most people focus on decorating the inside of their homes for the holidays, we’ve got to remember to give the outside a little bit of love, as well.

Accessorize with Throw Pillow Galore

Let’s face it; throw pillows are the ultimate decoration for any living room, particularly during fall. The possible autumn-like designs are endless, and they provide us with excellent comfort–making them another necessity for a fall family movie night. And I think we can all agree that you can never have too many of those!


Seasoned-themed posts are always so exciting to create! There’s something about transitioning from one season to another that’s so exhilarating; it’s like, time to get ready for another adventure! I pray that this list will aid you well in making the most of the season of autumn.

It’s Fall, Y’all! 3 Ways to Celebrate the Season of Fall!

Brown, orange, and yellow leaves falling from the trees, and pretty pleasant weather. What season is it? Fall! There’s an endless list of things that I love about this season. The nature and the weather is so beautiful around this time of year. Besides, it’s a great time to do so many exciting activities and bond with your family, in the process! 🍂

To celebrate this wonderful time of year, I’m going to share some Exciting Ways to Celebrate the Vibrate Season of Fall! So, come on! Join in the fun!

  1. Create Thanksgiving-themed crafts! 🍂

I remember how, in elementary school, I would create turkey and leaf crafts, coloring with fall-colored crayons. Making fall or Thanksgiving themed crafts can be an awesome way to really get into the fall spirit. If you do want to get creative, invite your family and friends to join you, as well! Besides, the more the merrier!

2. Decorate your house 🍂

Like Christmas, Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to make your house a lot more festive! If this is your goal, try to buy (or make) fall inspired decorations to spruce up your home! If you aren’t the type of person who likes extravagant decorations, it might be a good idea to put a fall inspired reef on your door! Although this decoration is simple, it can really add some charm to your front porch.

3. Play with the leaves! 🍂

Sometimes, it may be a little boring when raking leaves that have fallen in your backyard. However, I believe that there is a way to make this a lot more fun! Make “leaf angels,” hills, and maybe even a sculpture out of the leaves with your parents, friends, and/or siblings. And here’s the best part: you can jump in the leaves when you’re finished! This is an extremely fun activity for people or families who don’t mind getting a little dirty. Just remember that you’ll all have to rake up the leaves after you’ve had your fun, lol!

I hope you all have an amazing time celebrating fall with your families! If you decide to do anything fun or special, for this season and/or holiday, feel free to comment your experiences down in the comments!

Have a joyful and peaceful day, everyone! Peace! 🍂
