October is here in all it's painted glory. I feel all orangey-gold with joy and anticipation — so many celebrations and so much excitement awaits us this month. Are you ready?
Flocks of southbound geese, piles of fallen leaves, clear chilly nights, scarey movies, bright moons, pots of soup, costume planning, pressed leaves in thick books, ripe red apples, carved pumpkins.
Some odd and interesting tidbits about October:
~ October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month (Sadly, I just cannot get a fourth dog folks. People would start to wonder about my sanity and frankly I would too)
~ October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month (Go get your mammograms ladies. Buy yourself a Pumpkin Spice latte, some McDonalds fries, or your favorite fun treat when it's over. It's your life we're talking about here.)
~ Today (Oct 2) is National Name Your Car Day. (Hmmm. My first thought was "Olive" cuz my car's black and it would be fun to say "Let's go - everyone get in the Olive")
~Week 1 is Get Organized Week (I desperately need to honor this one. If you could see my house . . . oh boy, oh boy.)
~ It's national sarcastic month (in my nastiest teenage girl voice "okay. whatever. I am SO not gonna do this one))
