October is my favorite month.
I like pumpkins and shorter days.
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.
Pulling out the heavy jackets and hand knit hats.
The color orange everywhere I look.
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.
