Tribute to the 'O'-So Grand Month


October is here
Let us all cheer
For this month of candy and spooks
Pumpkins galore
Treats in the stores
I want to eat candy all day
The turning of leaves
And wearing long sleeves
Are signals there's change in the wind
My running nose
My freezing toes
October is all tricks and treats!

I fully agree that October is a grand month. If only this silly Santa Maria weather would catch up with us and bring us some fall-ness!

I love this! I am so in the mood for fall. I wish you could be here to experience the Midwest fall transition! It is truly beautiful.

I'm just going to put it out there. One year ago I wrote a blog in prose about October. Here it is:

October is now upon us. Well probably by the time you read this it will be upon us. And I decided to list out for you why I love the month of October... Now I may have done this before, but I'm gonna do this again:

So listen....

October is the only month that has a shape for its first letter. Amazing. Think of how cool it is to practice making circles/ovals all month long.

"But look. They conjure. Oh God! The woods! EMILY!" that's right a time for Hocus Pocus. I watched it today to get myself in the mood for Halloween. I love it.

Disney Halloween Movies. Gosh I will truly miss have cable this month because normally I spend time watching lame Disney Halloween movies for hours. Does anyone remember the one with Tim Curry and Mrs. Garrett from Facts of Life? They sang "Boil of dragon..." and something about "You'll feel right at home, at Augnt Aggie's School. At my little school!"

The colors of pumpkin orange, burnt red, chocolate and creamy browns... Oh I love it.

The warmth of a cozy sweater as the air cools down and the wind picks up.

The smell of spices and tasty treats. Mmm delicioso!

Behold! October is a month of Greatness!
