Ooooh! Aaaaah! October!

October is my favorite month in Kentucky. One can still enjoy the warm feeling of sun on skin in the afternoons, yet the mornings and evenings are crisp and cool—perfect for soft sweaters and mulled apple cider.

Meanwhile, the trees offer an ever-changing show of blazing color. There are times, in October, when I spot a stand of sugar maples dressed in the brightest shades of orange and red, and I think to myself, “God’s just showing off now!” I am happy simply to be a witness to October in Kentucky.

Plus, there’s the added excitement and anticipation of Halloween! We went all out preparing for Halloween this year!

I can’t wait for our trick-or-treaters to arrive! Really, I can’t—I need to get all this candy out of my house, or I’ll be as big as a bathtub soon!

What about my writing? I’m still doing it and taking joy in the doing. Everyday. That’s all I can say for now.
