Today is the first official day of my month long dedication to the month of October - and not in any particular order. Yesterday should have started the whole thing off but my little one is battling her allergies and the allergies won. So I stayed home to snuggle her yesterday and didn't attempt to make her grumpy by venturing close to the computer.
My little blurb for Oct. 1st, is for the Changing of the Leaves. It's usually something everyone enjoys and loves. Lots of people around here and even a few from afar like to travel to Brown County, Indiana to peep them a show. The leaves like to slip into something a little more comfortable... or should I say, colorful! I love leaves. Every year my kids go out and collect a few of their favorite shapes and sizes, we laminate them on stockcard with the saying, "Jesus never leaves". Not that I'm super religious or anything, and this can be done with almost any religion (sub out the name Jesus), but I think its cute.
For today, Oct. 2nd, my second highlight is the Weather. I love how the breeze comes waltzing through the windows and washes the old air away and replaces it with refreshing and new particles to enrich our lungs... or in my daughters case... enrages hers, causing her to cough.
I love how it also varies from day to day. One day it can be in the high 70's or even low 80's and then next it's in the high 60's. Never a dull day around here. And I love that about Indiana, now come winter time... I won't be loving it so much. In fact I will be cursing it to High Heaven. When it's cold... it's just damn cold.
There are other reasons why I love the cooler weather so much, but that is for another post this month.
