HI TO OCTOBER!

Quote for the week:  You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the roses along the way.
Walter Hagen

The month of October is one of my favorites. One son has  a birthday and two granddaughters have birthdays. The weather begins to cool off. The monarchs fly south, as do some of the birds.

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
There's Columbus Day
Halloween

Plus  a bunch of holidays that sound like fun.

And we must not forget the World Series Baseball Games. They start next week. Go, Rangers!

What is your favorite thing about October?

Happy Reading!

  4. October is awesome. I do realize this year that I'm only going to have a certain number of Octobers in my lifetime and I need to enjoy each one!

    1. You're so right, Stephanie. Sometimes I forget to appreciate each day and the beautiful world around me. Reminders are nice. :) We do hope for a bunch of Octobers ahead.

  5. It usually does cool off but sadly we are having some unusually hot weather. i love football, the food that goes with football, comfy sweaters and boots. Because of how excited my kids get Halloween is so much fun and still a big deal for us.

    1. Hopefully your weather will cool off soon, Kat. Yes, the football is exciting and even though my kids are grown and gone from home, I still decorate with pumpkins and ghosts for Halloween. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Wow, October is going to be a busy month for you. I live in South Africa, so our weather is starting to heat up. I'm not a big fan of summer:)

    1. You're right, Lee. Lately I've been taking more "me time," to do other things besides just writing. It's relaxing to play the piano and go for walks and play with the cats. Gee, I'm getting lazy. :)
