Good Monday morning, my friends! Welcome to the middle of October. I love this time of year, as you no doubt already know. These next few weeks, however, are some of my favorites. Slowly, almost unnoticeably, the shift occurs. For me, the pumpkin spice obsessions, bright afternoons, and vibrant leaf-covered trees that define early autumn are replaced with cloudy days and earlier nights, chilly enough for the heat to kick on afternoons and spooky movies on TV at night.
I plan on intentionally enjoying these next two weeks and promise to live in the now, the time of cozy, spooky fun. Come November 1, I can shift into all things Christmas. (No matter how tempted I am by the Target and Home Goods Christmas placemats, ornaments, and throw blankets they shove at me.)
That being said, do you prefer
Reese Peanut Butter Pumpkins or colorful candy corn?
It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown or Michael Myers Halloween?
Colorful leaves on trees or crunchy leaves on the sidewalk?
Pumpkin patches or Haunted houses?
Whatever you enjoy, savor it. These next two weeks will pass before we know it, and we will be knocking on the door of Christmas. (Which I also love, by the way.) Today is a homeschool day for us, and that is about it. We have some groceries to pick up, and I can finally pull on some of my Halloween sweaters and sweatshirts!!!!
Thanks for visiting, my friends. And if you want to get even more in the spirit, search YouTube for Halloween ambiance. It takes enjoying this time of year to a whole new level!
My answers are Peanut butter pumpkins, Halloween, Crunchy leaves, and Pumpkin patches.
