Anne of Green Gables said, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
Me too, Anne.
The colors here are breathtaking. The air is crisp and cool. The smell of fireplaces fill the air.
October is my favorite time of year.
I don’t have too much to say, I just wanted to share some pictures.
We like to walk down by the river and crunch leaves.
Our cat, who thinks she’s a dog, walks beside us.
We throw rocks in the creek.
EK has a cheesy smile these days.
But it’s cute.
It’s the month of costumes. We were asked to dress up as a super hero to help out our library for an event. Ek was batgirl and her little friend was Wonder Woman.
For Halloween, she was Snow White. She had so much fun getting candy.
In three months, she’ll be three years old.
Her hair is nearly to her waist.
Lately I find myself remembering.
Today I looked at pictures and couldn’t help wondering where the time has gone.
I know these days too are fleeting.
Like the changing of the leaves.
I live in a very cool place. Not braggin’ or anything, just stating facts. I have come to really love it here, and why not? I am in the midst of the Creator’s glory. Truly. Mountains, streams, wildflowers, and trees. One of the perks of living in a very cool place is that sometimes I look out my front door and see cool stuff. And sometimes, I see not very cool stuff, like bear trash. Among the cool stuff are two big bucks that came to say hi the other day. If I knew anything at all, I’d be able to tell you what kind of point system these dudes were on. But whatever. Sidenote: I may or may not have a thing for yellow vehicles. So do the deer. Not gonna lie, I was a little bit leery of being this close, with my little EK by my side and all. Those are really some big antlers and I’m not real sure if they would charge, but of course the vision of being gored by deer entered my mind. A reel of every episode of “When Animals Attack” shortly followed. Our cat was very curious too. You can see her photo bomb in the lower right corner of the second picture. Speaking of very cool things: I have a black cat and it’s October!!! October means Halloween! Does anyone else think that’s awesome besides me? No? Well I think it’s very cool. The leaves here are in an array of colors and taking a picture of a black cat in fall leaves is currently on my bucket list. Y’all remember this cat? Isn’t she a beauty? I have come to adore her. It is definitely a ‘she’. And her name is Rocky Muffin. But sometimes EK says, “I changed her into a boy” so then we call ‘him’ Bagheera. As I don’t have a ton of cat experiences, I really have nothing to compare this cat to…..except a dog, and let me tell you, she is just like a dog to the point of jumping in the car to go for rides and following us on our walks. Yesterday, I tried to get some cool pics of ol’ Baggy, but didn’t really succeed. It just so happens, unlike a dog, she doesn’t know how to sit or stay. It’s still a lot green here, mostly because we have some cool season grass, which unlike normal grass, stays green until Spring, then it dies. So there’s more summer than autumn in my pictures. But whatever. I’m not giving up yet, so be on the lookout for more pics of this cat. Maybe shoved in a jack o’ lantern? Maybe being gored by a buck? The possibilities are endless.
