This weekend since the pumpkins are gone, I took the sign
I had out in the garden and put in in my flower bed
in the front yard. I thought it looked okay.
This morning even though we are going to have record
temperatures this week I thought October is this week.
I really like September but I am madly in love with October.
In October, my husband will be older than me, and he gets
to be married to a younger woman for 6 months. ;)
My first baby who is now my oldest daughter was born
in October. She will be 29, Wow, I still remember when I had her, so clearly
and the doctor said it was a girl, and I knew I would never be the same.
My Dad came in to the recovery room as I was holding her in my arms,
and I was crying and I said, " Oh Dad, I am so sorry, I ever hurt you,
I just didn't know how much you loved me." It was just me and him and
he held his first grand daughter and it was so special.
It had been a very special week, not only did he get a first grand daughter,
after years and years our family finally won Grand Champion
steer at the Fair. Our family had shown cattle and that was the
year we finally won. It was a good week. My Dad was so happy.
October the air starts to have a tang of sweetness, like a crisp, bite
from a perfect apple. Or that first sip of apple cider. October
puts on all of her clothes and dresses up for fall. She is
shameless in the selection of her reds, browns, her yellows.
I think I always have fallen in love in October. My husband before
he was my husband came to tell me good-bye in September before
he left for college. By October, I knew he would meet some sweet
little coed and I would loose him forever. I know it was October,
when it dawned on me, what would happen to me if I lost him.
I wouldn't date him because he was my best friend. In October,
I realized, if he married me we could always be best friends.
I am a bit slow.
In October I want to grab my grandchildren and dance around the room
with them and sing silly songs. I would always dance with my own children
in October when they were small. Now they all tower over me.
I worked on this today. My pumpkin was a little bare.
I took the crow and stuff off and put it on the above sign.
So I cut out some shapes and put them on it to liven it up.
I put my pumpkins on the railings today. I hope that
this heat won't make them go bad. I just don't have room
in my fridge to keep them cold. I know this heat is going
to be going away and it will be replaced with air that is
wonderful and every morning to wake up is such a joy.
I hope you have a lovely Tuesday!
Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, for His wonderful works to the children of men!(Psalm. 107:6)
