* YIKES - IT'S OCTOBER! *

Wasn't it just five or six days ago that I wrote about it being September 1st ?? As I've said before, sometimes I wish I could lasso the earth and slow it down...a lot! But, since I'm not Superman or Superwoman, I guess I'll have to skip along the treadmill of life with everyone else! (I don't jog...I skip! It's much more fun.)

So if life must rush along, then I'm glad it's autumn again...my favorite time of the year, and October is my favorite month for various reasons: birthdays, football season, the St. Louis Cardinals in the playoffs! J  Go Cards!



I just love this comic strip. I think it came out in 2012 because that's when I first posted it.
Thank you, Patrick McDonnell, creator of Mutts!



Below are some of my favorite quotes about autumn:


"Listen! the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, we have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!" - Humbert Wolfe


"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." - George Eliot

 
"Listen to the trees as they sway in the wind. Their leaves are telling secrets...." -- Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

  1. It is lovely season right now, and I hope it lasts long. I refuse to think about what comes after! Enjoy it, Becky.

  2. Like you, I'm a bit in shock that time is flying. Thanks for the quotes. I like October too. Usually, it starts to cool down here. This year it's still hot, like summer, but I don't mind.

  3. October is fine. Autumn is fine. Spring, which it is here, is fine.
    I am dreading what comes afterwards though. And Christmas is only two heart-beats away as well.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
