While I am not a huge fan of Halloween (most of my family LOVES it), I am in love with the month of October, especially when the air turns crisp, the colorful leaves float gently to the earth, yards are decorated with hay bales, scarecrows, bowls of mums and lots of pumpkins. I like the woodsy and spicy scents of October, cinnamon, wood burning fireplaces, harvest fruit and pumpkins. I like the sounds of October, the rustle of leaves under your feet, the wind whistling through the trees, and then there are the colors, the brilliant colors that mark October, the vibrant reds, oranges and yellows, and the taste –apples, pears and pumpkins. All senses come alive during this most energetic and lovely month. Of course, the days are shorter, and evening come much sooner, but on a bright note, it’s a perfect time to curl up in your favorite chair and work on some handmade gifts.
This is a most lovely month, enjoy it every minute, every day!
