Hello, October!

October is one of my favorite months.  

October is cinnamon and allspice in the kitchen,
pumpkin bread in the oven,
a pleasant chill in the air with the smell of snow or firewood on it,
weather still warm enough to let us walk without coats to school
(which is well under way and off to a good start),
fiery colors emerging on the trees,
Christmas coming,
apple picking,
cookies and pies,
orchestra starting up again,
festivals and fairs,
scrapbooks and writing projects in front of a warm fire on weekends,
the promise of visits with family and friends,
a season filled with lovely sights and smells and feelings and sounds.

I love October.

I connected to you via Kirti's blog (she's in my writing group) and especially enjoyed these snippets of October joy. September and October are my favorite months (just have to concentrate on them rather than on what's coming!) I am glad to have found you!

Hi, I recently came across your blog and love it. Thanks for all the thoughtful posts.

snippets on October makes me wish I lived in the northern hemisphere:)

I've just got my first onion squash of the season and was amazed at how excited I was by it! I'm planning far more meals than I have squash...
