Welcome October

There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October. - Nathaniel Hawthorne
In October, our very world seems to explode with delicious color. The air turns crisper, cleaner, the sky a gloriously vivid azure blue. October's cool breezes shower us with leaves aglow in rich reds, sunny golds and burnished umber.
Listen! the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves! - Humbert Wolfe

Love them apples...how do you feel about apples...how's about them apples? Isn't that the line from the movie written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck??? I have drawn a blank as to the title...but it could be due to the time of day...it's 4:04 a.m. where I am...

Just wanted to drop you a note thanking you for the sweetest comment you left me on my site...I love that others out there make commitments for life, too...you guys sound a lot like us...and YES we love our animals, too...and of course our children...

Blessings...

What a great post! Your pictues are beautiful Sue. Makes me want to take a drive in the Ohio countryside and stop at one of those little produce stands with the pumpkin filled wagons and carts. They sell wonderful fresh apple cider...yum.

No cider for me this year but I will be getting my fried green tomatoes at the Whistlestop Irondale Cafe.

October has become my very favorite month, both because it's Anna Marie's birthday and because it's when it FINALLY starts to cool off around here.

Lovely pictures!

Ah October...ah Fall....Ah the crisp air under a solid blue sky. Apples and pumpkins and the smell of cinnamon!
I have been SO neglectful and trying so hard to catch up on some blogs...I wanted to stop by to give you a big hug! Letting you know I do stop in...letting you know I am thinking about you. Letting you know how wonderful I think you are...letting you know...just in case I haven't said lately!
Love,
Lisa

Mmmm yes! October! I was thinking how I really should savor every day of what's left of Autumn now. For sure! It's moving on and in a short time, the trees will be bare. And a different look will prevail. Time to really notice! Now! Not tomorrow or in the next hour. Now!

Thank you for the reminder.

Hugs,
Mari-Nanci

October is my favorite month. I just wish it would cool off like it's supposed to!! It's going to be 80 today, and will go even higher later this week. Where is Fall??? It still feels like summer to me. I want the nice cool, crisp air to come, so I can wear my hoodies and jackets!!

Brenda said...
