Decorated . . .

Is it the harvest season?

Soybeans . . . OR corn . . .

Or the plowing that comes after?

Farming

Checking the weather

… rain?  Did he say rain?

Or the thirty one days of fun?

Which of these match you?

For me, October is the month of birthdays . . .

  1. Everything pumpkin! And October birthdays abound in our family, too. Whenever one of the kids would bring home a potential serious boyfriend or girlfriend someone would always ask if they were born in October – a sure sign of how serious the relationship was!

    1. Rose, that’s my daughter-in-law, too. Everything pumpkin!

      Love that question about when they were born! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. <My goodness, your October is jam packed! Enjoy all of it, Fran.

    1. Yes, it is a busy month. It would be fun to have 31 days with my grandson . . . ❤

  3. Fall is my favorite season. I love the crisp air and sweater weather.

    1. There’s something about that crisp fresh air that is unique to Fall. And I agree that sweater weather is just around the corner!

  4. I just wrote about October, too, Fran, a special month of the seasons, and my birthday month, too. We also have several other family birthdays! I love it all!

    1. Such a special month! Enjoy your birthday for sure!

  5. For me October is a month of anniversaries. Kathy and I celebrate 36 years together today. My nephew and niece share their second today, They were also married on the 4th. My other nephew and niece will celebrate their anniversary later this month. I just love the spicy smells of October as well.

    1. Wow! You do have many anniversaries to celebrate!

      I hadn’t thought of October as spicy but I sure do like that descriptor! ❤

  6. Sweatshirts and pumpkin flavored coffee!

    1. Oh, Jennie! I love almost everything pumpkin . . . but don’t mess with my coffee! It’s black . . . plain . . . dull . . . boring! LOL!

  7. Lots of fall and October posts today! Check out Rose and Linda if you haven’t. I love making soup and October signals the beginning of soup season. I also love pumpkin picking and day long fires on a chilly day. Thanks for getting me to slow down and appreciate the season.

    1. YES to soup season . . . that was my grocery shopping. Stocking up on some basics so I can pull together a “stone” soup if needed! Thanks for the tip on Rose and Linda’s posts. Heading there! ❤

  8. I can’t help but think of trick or treaters. Especially the little ones.

  9. For me October still brings to mind New England foliage, cool days, and glorious smells, even though none of these hold true for my Octobers here. I guess October is for memories for me now:) Thanks for making me think.

    1. I think tonight’s wind and rain is going to wipe out much of our foliage . . . it’s a “bucketsful” kind of night. Glad that you have the memories. So sad that you don’t see those. 😦
