I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers – October Activities

Share Button

I have always thought of summer as my favorite season because the beach is my absolute favorite place to be. I have to admit as I have matured and had kids I have grown fonder of the beauty of autumn. It is a time I find myself pulled back into my love for nature and all of the amazing things surrounding us. Our love of fall runs deep, so grab yourself some hot cider and stay awhile. We have so much to share.

October’s Party

October gave a party

The leaves by hundreds came—
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek, they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly “hands around.”
