Today I woke up to a low mist and chill temps. Welcome October! God, how I've missed you.
There are so many things I love about October that I'm going to tell you them in no particular order.
The amazing colors--rich reds, oranges and yellows. Only in October do we describe red in so many variations. Cranberry, cherry, maroon, burgandy, wine...
The piles of pumpkins and squash surrounded by dried stalks of corn when you go to the grocery store.
The sounds--crinkly leaves, tapping rain, whispering winds, and the call of geese and ducks as they fly overhead going south.
The smells--burning leaves, spiced cider simmering on the stove, and chili soup.
Fall storms--After this year's hot, hot--too hot--summer, I'm ready for heavy rains and strong winds. And I hope they come when I can sit and watch out my window. I've been known to open our patio door so I can get a real good listen and view.
The new TV season and the beginning of the Oscar race. Love it when my old shows go back and I get chance to meet some new ones. And I love when the movies take a turn from Summer fluff to Fall finesse.
There's so much more I could come up with, but I'd like to get this posted before the first is over. So, tell me, what's your favorite part of October?
