Celebrate the Small Things- It's October!

Thanks to our host Viklit and co-hosts Diana Wilder, L.G. Keltner, Cyborg Mom and CaffeMaggieato!

This week I'm celebrating...

It's my favorite month of the year!  Fire reds, sunlit golds, pumpkin orange and even royal purple are starting to light up the trees and porches all over in the forms of leaves, mums and pumpkins galore.  Soon I will be apple picking and enjoying fall festivities.   We've got a trip planned to the Ren faire and hopefully there will be some haunted activities as well.  Not to mention pumpkin coffee, muffins, rolls and other seasonal goodies that I've been totally over-indulging in.  I'm giddy and becoming increasingly more so as the colors of the season start coming into full bloom.  Sigh, I love fall.

My Favorite Holiday is coming up!  There's a cemetery in my front garden and I just picked up a couple of new tombstones from the Halloween store.  The inside of my house is covered in orange lights, ghostly signs and tons of cute little critters all decked out for the holiday.  I'm plotting to torture my poor tiny dog with another freakishly adorable costume and I've got a lot of crafts planned for the month.  I've already started indulging in re-runs of the Treehouse of Horror Simpsons specials and I'm thinking I may re-play Costume Quest because it's the most fun Halloween game I've ever played.  I may OD on Halloween by the end of the month, but that's fine with me.

FINALLY felling better  Last Monday night my throat started hurting and by Tuesday morning I was full-blown sick with aches, no energy, runny nose with severe congestion and all around horribleness.  I took Wednesday off from work but on Thursday wasn't really feeling any better.  When this past Monday hit and I was still feeling rotten I gave in and went to the doctor who started me on the inevitable antibiotics.  After 5 days of that I'm finally feeling like this thing is on its way out.  It seems like it's been forever and it's really been pissing me off because in addition to feeling horrible I haven't run at all for two full weeks now and I've got a marathon to train for!  Hopefully next week I'll be out running again, and enjoying the changing foliage in a more in-depth way.

What about all of you?



  1. Glad you're feeling better.
    Can we take a haunted tour of your house?

  2. Glad you're feeling better!
    I had my first pumpkin latte of the season last week - it was amazing!
    Also, there's no such thing as OD-ing on Halloween. Not possible!

  3. Wish I loved a season this much! :) I do love pumpkin lattes and I've had my second for the season already yesterday! Yum. ^_^ I did go Christmas shopping yesterday. Ha,ha. I also have my Halloween decorations out. My living room gets to be decked out for the rest of the year! Good times.

  4. Hey Bev!
    Hope you're in totally recovered!

  5. So sorry to hear you've been ill, so glad that you're on the mend!

    Congrats on the marathon! An awesome challenge to tackle!

    This Halloween - my favorite month and holiday too - I'm a little subdued but still looking forward to reading all the great ghost stories!


Thank you for your comment! I will love it and hug it and pet it and call it George. Or, you know, just read and reply to it. But still- you rock!
