Hello October

Listen! The wind is rising and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!
(Humbert Wolfe)

It's here - my favourite month of the year (although it's really hard to choose between all the fall months.) Things I love about October...

1. warming fires to sit by and dream
2. putting the garden to bed for the winter
3. candles on the dinner table
4. soup for dinner (roasted tomato, spicy tortilla, cream of broccoli)
5. the first frosty morning
6. Thanksgiving (I'm in Canada) with turkey, stuffing, cranberries and more - yum!
7. leaves - first the colour on the trees, then scuffing through them as they fall
8. windy, rainy nights while I'm cozy inside
9. apple cake
10. my birthday! (at the end)

How about you? What do you love about October? If you post a list, leave a comment and I'll put up links so we can all share what's so special about this month.

    Happy Birthday!

    And do you Halloween?! I love all of the decorations...and now my little grandson is just getting the hang of it! His Dad makes his costumes and they have a great time together.

    Have a great week!
    Hugs, Nancy

Have you noticed how much brighter the days are? Even on the rainy, cold days we're experiencing there is a sense of lightness that assu...
