Dancing flames and good books by Liz Flaherty #WordWranglers

October is crisp days and cool nights, a time to curl up around the dancing flames and sink into a good book. - John Sinor

Hello, October, and hello Wrangler Readers. Hasn't this just been the fastest year ever?

This is my favorite month of the year, and it's often the busiest, too. I'm not sure how that happens, but I think it has to do with not wanting to miss anything.

Like pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin spice tea.

Turkey. We usually have a few practice ones before Thanksgiving.




Sounds. Rustling leaves, birds bidding farewell on their flights south, marching bands and high school football game announcers.

My friend Sherry West's first children's book.

My severaleth book, The Healing Summer--coming October 30, but you can order it now. Please.

I've spent so much time messing around with pictures, it might already be November! I hope you're having a splendid autumn. Which parts of it bring you the greatest joy?


  1. Love this!! I'm so ready for fall!

  2. This October came really fast. The older I get the faster the year goes by!

  3. I just wish it felt like fall! It's starting to, but not quite yet...

  4. I just love October, too, Liz, and for all of the reasons you gave. By the way, my paternal grandmother was a Flaharty, but I believe she spelled it with an "a" after the "h".

    1. We're cousins then, right? :-) There are very few of us here, but tons of them in Louisville and western KY, where my husband grew up.
