Well, here we are in the beginning of October.
How was your weekend?
Here in North Carolina we enjoyed our first cool weekend with not a lick of humidity on the radar. The A/C was turned off and the windows were opened. I've been on a cleaning mission around here and this weekend it was my closet. Everything came out, the floor got vacuumed, the baseboards were dusted, the trunk of my car is now filled with things headed for the thrift shop and order reigns once again.
Hot, humid air zaps my energy.
But, cool, crisp air invigorates me.
Makes me want to open up the windows, turn on the music and clean and organize the nooks and crannies of my house.
So, that's what I've been doing.
Now, we all know what all work and no play can do to a girl ... so, I think it's important to schedule in a break or two during the cleaning frenzies.
The fresh fall air we are enjoying turned my thoughts to apple cider... hot.spiced.apple cider. We didn't happen to have any on hand, but since my husband was out and about I called and asked if he might be interested in stopping at the local farm stand to see if they had any. He did and came home with a gallon of it. He also came home with this:
Such a pretty surprise!
So once I got them situated in their vase, I returned to the closet cleaning while he did this:
U of M wins again. Woo Hoo!!
When the football game was over we migrated to the porch to sample the first warm spiced cider of the season and ...
watch the clouds turn pink as the sun began to set.
Our October is off to a fresh and colorful start.
Hope yours is too :).
