After a long, extremely hot, sticky yucky summer I'm actually anxiously awaiting October for this year. This summer was bad, the kind of summer which might have well been winter because of the oppressive heat. Hopefully I'll have an apple picking opportunity, or trip to a nice orchard that carries that type of stuff this time of year. I also find myself anxiously awaiting Halloween, and am now trying to think of a costume, and fun things to do on that day. In the past I've dreaded seeing the Halloween stuff out too early, but this year I feel compelled to start buying it a month and ten days early. There is also nostalgia for Halloween past, that several of my favorite bloggers have started with. Now trying to think of nostalgic topics to start penning for Halloween.
