What Is October?


My favorite month of the year.

October, to me, means:

• red, orange and yellow-colored leaves swirling, swaying, falling to the ground
• purple, yellow and rust-colored mums blooming in my yard
• Halloween and candy and costumed children and Trick-or-Treat
• cooler temperatures, comfy Levis and flannel jackets
• Friday night high-school football games (go, Lee’s Summit West!)
• Saturday afternoon college football games (go, MU!)
• Sunday afternoon NFL games (go, Chiefs!)
• pumpkin patches and corn mazes and hayrides and scarecrows and haunted trails
• the Renaissance Festival
• shorter days and longer nights
• parent/teacher conferences
• a crock-pot full of delicious, hot chili or hot, spicy taco soup
• MOVING into our new home (I HOPE!!!)
