One of my favorite photos of the farm in fall (actually, it's mostly my neighbors farm, but it's still a pretty autumn picture)
October is my favorite month. Well, isn’t it everyone’s? I mean after all, it does contain my birthday, our anniversary, AND Halloween. The leaves start changing, the evening air gets crisp and clear, and the descending angle of the sun leaves the world in a delicious tilt. We’re kicking this October off with a moody day fit only for curling up with the cat, a good book, and a cup of tea. We really tried to be diligent here on the farm today. There we were, out working in the rain, all productive, but then I got cold and the warm, cozy house began to call to me like the house of Usher (well okay, less creepy and more inviting, but nearly sentient all the same). So we did it. We set a perilous October precedent by taking an afternoon off.
