Like the savory aroma of homemade soup on the stove, certain words make me hungry for the fall season. I call them my October words. Here are a few of them: colored leaves, apple cider, sweaters, plaid, pumpkins, fall festivals, blessings, juicy apples, acorns, pine cones, hay bales, crisp weather, pumpkin pie with whip cream, fuzzy slippers, freshly baked cookies, and flickering candles.
Recently, I saw this quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
“Autumn, the year’s last lovliest smile.” Unsure who penned those words, but I like them.
Warm colors of red, orange, and gold seem cozy now that summer’s heat is a memory. Anne, the main character in Lucy Montgomery’s book, Anne of Green Gables, said of October, ” I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” I agree with Anne. October is a wonderful month.
