Today is a beautiful fall day. The sky is blue, white puffy clouds float overhead, it’s not too hot or too cold. Today is just right. My random happy thoughts turn to the month of October.
I love October. It is my favorite month of the year. The leaves are changing, the garden harvest is finishing up, and colorful mums dot the front porch. Wonderful things happen in October. It’s like the restful month that winds down the last of the summer before everything hibernates and dies back for winter.
October is a month of warm, sunny days and sweater-worthy nights…Taking walks in the twilight while a soft breeze blows scratchy maple leaves across the sidewalk. October is filled with apple cider, costumes, football games and late harvest goodies. It is the time of pies, goblins, sleeping with the windows open, and changing wardrobes.
October is my nirvana.
