“The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky.” William Butler Yates
It is finally October. Hallelujah. I feel this way every year after surviving another summer of triple H weather (hazy, hot & humid). It’s not just the cool weather I embrace. It’s all the fairs this time of year, the activities like apple and pumpkin picking and Halloween. I may not trick-or-treat anymore, but I still watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and hope he gets more than a rock. It’s also a great time for decorating, cooking and baking.
What are some of your favorite ways to welcome October and the coziness of fall?
The weather here in New England has cooled off considerably during the overnights, but a lot of the days still have temperatures between 75-80 degrees. Even though the leaves have started to change and pumpkin patch signs are everywhere I turn, I still need a push to welcome fall. And what better push than music. Enjoy.
