Can you imagine? It' October already (as if you didn't know) and I couldn't be happier. My black dog has found someone else to pesster for awhile and This is my favorite season.

I'm winding up a week with mom, and I'll be happy to be back home. SOMEBODY over there isn't as obsessed with plant care as I am....though he tries. I told him I love him anyway, and I do. Oh, and hey, I MISS him.

So much in the news to be dismayed about, but I'm not going there. I'm fantasizing about long drives into the Sierra to see fall colors.  I'm marveling at the variety of squash and gourds at the farmer's market, and I'm sketching (in my mind) my spring vegetable garden and new fruit trees.

I'm looking forward to the party this weekend to celebrate a marriage. 23 years together and the law will now let them...Jaysus.

And if I don't see my grandson soon, I'm gonna bust. Crossing fingers for a quick trip down this month and Thanksgiving next month.  He has yet to meet my husband's grand kids.

Happy October, all.


  1. Fall is my favorite season too. The light is so beautiful, and the temps cool down. Great to be outside walking or biking around. Enjoy every minute of it, Tara!

  2. Yes, wonderful fall. Hope it is perfect.
