Rabbit Rabbit for my Favorite Month!

Yup! October is my favorite month. Why, you ask?

  • It's my birthday month which means a bonafide reason to celebrate and eat cake. (Not that anything else stops me from eating cake!)

  • It's Canadian Thanksgiving which means turkey and stuffing and all things pumpkin. And most importantly, it means family gathered together to give thanks

  • It means real sweater weather. Not just light pastel cardigans; but big cable knits, lovely Afghan prints, long cover-yer-bums, ponchos and pullovers and V-necks. Warm and wooly and snuggly. And in Newfoundland where it's more northern and surrounded by the Atlantic, I'm needing them earlier than ever.

  • Colors that I wouldn't normally wear in spring and summer come out of my closet. The color of Autumn leaves -- russets and golds and olive greens and browns. 

  • And yes, it's the month that I begin to think about Christmas. I know a lot of you aren't ready to hear that word, but little thoughts creep into my head: What will be on my menu? Who will be at my table? How can I talk my Mom out of one of her 2 small freezers so I can begin baking?

Rabbit rabbit y'all!

October was always the month that I celebrated being 1/2 year older, when I was a kid of course, I don't do it now! LOL.
Happy October birthday to YOU! And Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian style!

Daughter 3 has an October birthday and she loves having it that way. I would love to don cable knit sweaters but the weather is still summery down here. I need to move. But I doubt I could take one of your winters. LOL

Takes a while for us to have real sweater weather, but it's pretty dang cool here in southern Utah today. I love October too. Lots of our trees are already turning, which I find a little odd because it's usually November when our trees really turn, you know, like overnight it seems. Don't want to go there with the Christmas thing, but I have to confess I have been thinking about it and what I should be doing. Ack!
