It is October again.
The first day of October.
October is probably the most beautiful month of the year here. The fall colors will start to show, the weather is awesome and there is so much to do.
I just love it.
Now is the time to pick apples and pumpkins, to visit markets and vineyards.
Maybe it is time for a trip to Skyline Drive?
There is so much to do. Somehow you'll never get around to do all the things you have planned on doing.
Chrysutatemums are true fall plants here. I like them. I like them a lot.
The weather yes...
Now we are blessed with true indian summer. During the day the temp will reach 80 degrees (around 26 on the Celsius scale).
The nights are cool, around 48 degrees (8C).
Reston Town Center
It is TIME to pimp up the yard for Halloween. My favorite!!
Sometimes it rains, but not that often.
But, when it rains it pours.
If I mind rain?
No, not one bit. I like it, as a matter of fact (in moderation, of course)
I will wake up to this most of the mornings in the beginning of October.
This is the view from my bedroom.
And, one of my favorite things with October IS HALLOWEEN!! BUT, more about that later...
I also love the coziness factor in October.
IT does get cooler, the nights are much darker.
It is time to go ALL out with candles and great dinners at home.
I light several candles every night. Yes, that is coziness, and coziness IS important.
My living room in the beginning of October last year. Time for me to change curtains, pillows, blankets etc. I still have my summer stuff up. Not cool.
Good dinners yes. This is from Lotta's cray fish party last year. Somehow we seem to have our cray fish party in October. And guess what, it works out great. looking forward to this years party.
SO, Ocober it is IS!!
And I will "cozyfy" this blog.
How about loads of photos?
Lots of Halloween feeling!
Lots of fall feeling!
I hope you are with me.
Have a good day!
All pics are taken in the beginning of October during the years 2010-2012. And they are taken by me, of course!
