sunsets on the fly

October 21, 2010

With the light changing as the days get shorter I’ve watched the shadows in my home change and magically appear where just the day before there was none.

Oh, October how I love you and know that you bring shorter days and colder months ahead.
We have been enjoying the activities that this month has brought us.
Such as cookie making, cause who doesn’t like to fire up the oven and warm up the house a little?

See if you can figure out what it is and which one of the Riddle clan was the creator of the cut out cookie below…

Ten points for the first correct answer. “You rock” if you figure it out.

There has also been some sharing of scary stories…

and hunting for proof that they may be true…

We have had some fun too…

Which is good ’cause when I hear of ghosts and goblins those long old fears about the boogeyman and the monster under my bed resurface. It’s right about this time of year that I start to leap from the doorway to my bed if I have to be the last one to turn the light out. Just the other day I swear I saw the edge of the bed-skirt move as I reached over to turn off my reading light. Mr. Riddle was sleeping and I tried to wake him. I said, Hey! There is something under the bed! It almost got me and drug me under to never be seen or heard from again! Really, truly this time!
How did he respond? He swore at me and rolled over.
Is this getting weird? Yeah… let’s move on.

Along with the changing light (which I love), cooler weather (again, love), and glorious colors of autumn leaves (need I say love?), this time of year has us knee deep in after school practice through the week…

So, we’ve been enjoying each others company…

and soaking up the beauty of the season when we can.

Even if that means catching sunsets on the fly from the sideview mirror as I head east.

If you’re from my part of the country you know that soon snow will be flying.
And this sign…

Won’t seem like such a silly and far off idea. I can’t wait!

And don’t let me forget to mention this guy..
October doings9
He’s ready for winter. He has firewood stacked and ready to burn. Come January he’ll be here in his recliner smilin’ as he slowly roasts the members of his home in our 85º family room. He can’t wait.

Until next time,
