Today: October

October is my favorite month.

I like pumpkins and shorter days.
Crisp mornings.
Hot tea.
Watching Young Frankenstein, Hocus Pocus, and equally silly Halloween movies from childhood.
I like afternoons filled with yellow light streaming through the redwoods and worrying about Halloween costumes.
Warm sheets from the dryer.
Making soup.
Pulling out the heavy jackets and hand knit hats.
The color orange everywhere I look.
Christmas knitting.
The smell of pumpkin pie and cinnamon apples.

What are your favorite things about October?

P.S. Please send some loving thoughts to my mom who had to say goodbye to her canine companion this week.  She was an incredible pup and we'll all miss her.

I love to curl up in my favorite chair while wearing my pjs and holding a mug of something warm and then watch the yellow leaves from the maple tree next to my patio fall to the ground. I also love pulling out all the wooly goodness to wear!
Hugs to your mom from afar. Losing a pup (or any animal) is devastating. They are family. <3
