A new page turns...

I'm linking with Art @ Home My happy List


..........................
HAPPY OCTOBER

Turn over a new page...  In the calendars, in everything!  This morning the winds began to blow away a heavy, misty fog which scurried around the fields in front and the trees in back.  October winds, if that makes any difference.

You know, that does make a huge difference to me!  This is the jewel of the year...  Darker marina blue skies, painted-iridescent apricot trees, and a touch of chilly nighttime magic...  

Had a little soup luncheon for Mama, my cousin, and me...  Impromptu, and such great company..  She brought us eggs, apples, a little pie and a delectable sampling of chocolate...  I have a new "thing" to make...  I keep a little loaf of that party rye bread.  And I make tiny little panini sandwiches with a bit of cheese and one thin slice of carving board turkey folded into quarters...  I grill that baby, and it's a little bite of crunchy goodness... 


Tonight my son and maybe a friend come over for supper and spinner...  I'm thinking Oriental Cabbage and beef, asparagus spears, and cinnamon baked apples...  A little salad and a crescent roll...  

Have a blessed and beautiful October!

Lovvvvvvvve your "October Keep Calm" sign! Just lovvvvve it.

Also love your descriptions of the natural world. Simply beautiful. I never could come up with your perfect words of "painted-iridescent apricot trees," but I know/love well, that look of Autumn leaves.

And who doesn't look forward to "a touch of chilly nighttime magic"??? Oh yes!!! 'Tis that delicious season.
