The wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!
Humbert Wolfe (1885 – 1940)
October is a fun month and now it will howl out with the wind and rain tonight. I do not like the early darkness … especially after the time changes Sunday … but I do love being able to adjust to the change easier. I can adjust chores to the sun’s clock. The end of Daylight Saving Time used to mean doing chores in the dark in the morning and in the dark at night. I especially despised getting home late from a meeting, usually toting supper-in-a-bag-or-box, then having to change clothes to go back outside to do chores.
To celebrate Halloween this morning, I decided to be a bit like Pooh and Piglet:
My breakfast was provided by my sister, English teacher extraordinaire! Let me explain ~ She chooses this time of year to study Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
To top it off … she takes her students these delights:
Who says English can’t be fun!?
To top it off even more … she orders a few extra for special deliveries! I am supposed to share with my family…. mwah-ha-ha! Yeah, we’ll see about that!
Cookies were made by our sweet, local shoppe ~ Iced!
I plan to enjoy this last day of October … and I hope you do, too!
