Wow, October Already?

Man, time sure flies these days.

I can remember when the days were long, weeks took a while, months took forever, and a year was equal to an eternity.

Now, I feel like a day passes by in a blink, a week is gone before you know it, a month could easily pass before I get to item #5 on my to do list, and a year is short.

(I recently read this brief article about the time moving faster phenomenon; I agree with the idea that it has a lot to do with "firsts".  The more unique an experience the more lasting the impression.  However, that still doesn't explain how the little baby I just gave birth to will be 15 months old on the 3rd!)

Anyways . . .

It's October.

October has always been one of my favorite months.  My birthday is in October.  The weather is generally pleasant--not too hot and not too cold.  (Of course, there are always exceptions--like the year there was a blizzard the day after my birthday!)  I love the autumnal palate of reds, oranges, and yellows.  The academic routine (always a part of my life) has settled down and become normal once again.  I love the crunch of leaves.  I love that it isn't too hot to wear jeans.  I love that it is the month of the Holy Rosary.

And, of course, one of the best things about October?  Halloween candy.

  1. I've got a great costume with which to scare the crowds, a great mask for the kids and an amazing gimmick to tide over the rest of the company. I'm quite ready to have a blast this Halloween. Bring it on!
