Looking ahead 31 days

Fall leavesOctober 1st. August seemed to drag, but September was over in the blink of an eye. Now its October, and I have no doubt it’ll pass even quicker.

I love fall. Absolutely love it. Right now I have the windows open, listening to rain falling gently, tree frogs chirping. It’s 60° at the moment, and the breeze feels wonderful. I have fall decorations up inside and outside, and tonight I flipped on the fireplace insert. I didn’t turn any heat on, but the glow just seemed right.

Fall means pumpkin patches, corn mazes, Oktoberfest, and football. It means fun socks, sweaters, and pumpkin spiced lattes. Ghost stories and horror flicks make for fun thrills.

It means my parent’s wedding Anniversary is just around the corner, and some very special birthdays aren’t far behind.

I luckily should have two or three photoshoots this month. My husband’s schedule is quite full this month as well. My parents may be visiting later in the month, which is always a treat. And speaking of treats…


I think I have my costume figured out. I just have to make sure one key component still fits. I’ll admit it: I’m always excited about Halloween!

I’m also participating in NaBloMo this month. (National Blog Posting Month) I hope it will help me get back on track with blogging regularly.  I rarely post about the day’s prompt, but I like a lot of the prompts I see this month. The theme is “Mask” which should be fun. Since, when I think mask, I think hiding something or yourself. Exploring the many things one may hide will be interesting.

Welcome to October! Please don’t be in any hurry to leave… lets enjoy the month and its many treats it brings.

  1. Your title made me want to sing “31 days on the road, and I don’t know where to go from here” (yes, instead of the 21 days on the road LOL).

    October is a good month for challenges! I’ve got fitness challenges, diet challenges, and now crochet challenges- not just orders, but now I’m participating in a fundraising vendor show for a private preschool in Temple. Busy, busy!

  2. October makes be so happy and a little sad too. It is the month you moved to Nashville and so it has an extra meaning to me. Either way, yes I love the month in spite of all the work that goes with it. Looking forward to all the good times to come.
