The leaves are starting to turn some startlingly beautiful fall colors, crimson, rich golds and brilliant shades of orange. I love this time of year. I love pulling out favorite sweaters and my feet love the warmth of my Uggs and my winter slippers. My morning coffee tastes better when the first sip is taken outside watching the birds start their morning trips to my backyard feeders.
My pumpkins were carved and what a time that was. The wild weather during the growing season has made for some unusually thick pumpkins, great for professional carvers. Not so great for the amateur. Not only did I manage to destroy all the little carving implements I bought for pumpkin carving, I also broke 2 kitchen knives, bent a steak knife and ended up swinging a huge thing that looked like it should have been carried by Jim Bowie in the wilderness. I am talking hours here, folks! So what should occur when I put it outside? Well overnight and into the next morning, I had visitors that appreciated my pumpkin on an entirely different level. They ate it! Sigh. Oh well, at least someone enjoyed my efforts.
There are so many great books being released now that I am getting a little overwhelmed, but in a good way. So this is my schedule for next week. If it does play out this way, well chalk it up to my Fall crazies and Halloween overload:
Monday: Love Comes Silently by Andrew Grey
Tuesday: Chase The Stars by Ariel Tachna
Wednesday: Mine by Mary Calmes
Thursday: Gleams of a Remoter World by Fiona Glass
Friday: Torquere Sip Short Stories
Saturday: Theory of Attraction by Cleon Lee and Just A Summer Fling by Lily Grace
Any how that’s what I am aiming for in addition to pulling out my witch’s costume and putting new feather in my hat! The ghostly jester skeleton is hanging in the breeze and the raven is soon to follow. So much to do……
