I've come to realize that of them all, October really is my favorite month. Odd that...considering I have tropical blood coursing through my veins.

I love the fullness of it...the diverseness of it...the changing weather, the changing colors...the anticipation of things to come. Most of all, I love the latter half...birthdays and then...Halloween.

In the early semi-dark hours this morning, coffee mug in hand and gazing out the window at the fog and slight sparkle of wasn't difficult to see how the ancient Celts believed that the Wall was thin on this day. Just in case they were right and I am wrong...we were ready with our disguises.

Wee bats walking hand in hand with grandfathers...making their way down the neighborhood to the local Truck-or-Treat festivities...

Followed close behind by a pint size princess...and her grandmother escort...

A weekend of autumn-ness...sofa forts and movies...snug and safe from the cold wet out side...bonfire, s'mores and fellowship with dear friends. Naps and cups of ginger tea this afternoon.

Yes...October really is a most delightful month.
