It’s October second and it feels great. The weather changed to fall like a couple weeks ago. The leaves have been changing for a week. But the fact that the calendar says October makes it a thousand times more wonderful. It makes the pumpkin lattes, tea, hot cider, soups, homemade bread and applesauce taste that much better. To be able to sit outside in a sweater and drink a hot drink while watching the leaves change and the squirrels hide nuts make this month beautiful. What a relaxing month it is.
