Happy October

October is my favorite month of the year. The colors are glorious--reds, golds, dark greens, orange, dark purples, and it smells of spices--cinnamin, nutmeg, a dash of pepper, ginger, and it's crisp and clean as well.

Pumpkins, costumes, scary stories, signs of the harvest, wheat stalks, hay bales.

Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bagels, hot apple cider, hot chocolate with marshmellows floating in it, baked apples, chili, roasting chiles (i so miss Denver this time of year!), cornbread.

The sound of leaves crushing and crunching beneath feet.

Oooh, I LOVE it! Thank you God for autumn and October!

By the way, I am committing to blogging each and every day this month, and the blog theme is haunting/haunted (see the side bar) so it should be fun and even deep on some days.

As my wonderful Virginia would say, "coffee break's over!"
