It is the small simple things of life that bring us peace.

October Musings

The days are getting shorter, actually it is the daylight that is shorter but the days seems shorter and nights longer.  On Sunday we roll back the clock and my beloved Daylight Savings Time goes away and then it really gets dark earlier.  If the weather forecast is correct (ha ha) today was probably our last day to have temperatures in the upper 80's.  I really don't want to think about putting my sandals and shorts away but will have to do so. 

Pumpkins are on the porch and Jaydon will carve his big one on Sunday.  Trick or Treat is on Monday.  Then on Wednesday I head to the International Quilt Festival (this is my 10th year to go and I'm still so excited!) and maybe to a see Joey march at a football game next weekend.  When I get home it will be time to start preparing for Thanksgiving because it will be here quickly.  Then the holidays start and before I'm ready it will be New Years and time to take down the tree and Christmas decorations.

Why does this season go by so quickly?  August seemed like it would never end, September passed fairly quick, and it seems like yesterday was October 1st and I was getting on a plane to start my wonderful trip.  Where oh where did October go?  And why will November and December be a memory so soon?  Oh, if only fall would linger a little longer.

These were real pumpkins!  How 'bout them pumpkins!
