It's October!

I wanted to start my usual celebration to autumnal of my favorite times of the year. A time my sister usually comes home to visit, but I think we will head south this year for a change. This is a time of year when my focus turns towards home. We start to pile up firewood for those chilly fall evenings. I wash my windows to let the sunshine in. I love how they look.

So seasonal color for the patio was in order.
Who is that peaking out of the silver king?

Some pumpkin oatmeal cookies to scent the house and they go great with my pumpkin spice coffee too.
So I put a pan of lasagna in the oven and finished up with a few Halloween decorations for the younger kids.
As I wrap up in my warm and cozy hand knitted sweater I will gaze out over the backyard which will be ablaze with color soon. I truly enjoy the change of seasons that make life in New England so wonderful.

Hi Donna, I so want to come over and sit in the great deck chairs, eating a pumpkin cookie, sipping a pumpkin spiced coffee with you admiring your Fall decor. Everything looks wonderful warm and cozy.Blessings Francine.

October is a favorite month here, too..... love the nip in the air and the smells and sights of autumn. I have a few decos out, but need to do more.... I really need to get the lead out!!
Your patio looks perfect for some coffee and some pumpkin cookies, and to sit and enjoy the changing colors!
Have a great day!

And what a great yard to observe Fall in, Donna! Love that area of your deck with the adirondack chairs ~ you get a great view of your yard and it looks really comfortable. I'll bet your kitchen smelled wonderful while those cookies were baking.
