October And All It's Glory
October 1, where has the time gone this year. I really like the month of October when the air is crisp, the colors you see are stunning, and it is the beginning of my favorite time of food preparing and eating (not necessarily in that order)! Fire in the fireplace, a good book, bundle up with a hot toddy and a big pot of chili or stew. The downsides of cooler temperatures for me though are that the cold kills my joints and once my feet are cold I never warm up.
It's cold and flu season and I just can't seem to get enough sunshine. Plus it's Halloween my most unfavorite time of the year. I refuse to even go near that grocery aisle that contains the nasty candy (not really nasty). I won't have it in my house and I won't have my lights on either to distribute. I don't want the leftover candy around. My way of dieting. I always hated dressing up in costumes as a kid and still do. Instead I'll enjoy all the other things that fall has to over, as previously mentioned.
