TGIF: October? Really?

Trees

Am I the only one who feels like October sneaked up on us a bit? But I’m not complaining. October is my absolute favorite month.

It’s also the month I feel most homesick for the Midwest. The weather in North Carolina is beautiful right now — finally. It’s been in the 70s and sunny every day, and the humidity has finally left the air, but I miss the October chill in Indiana. I used to work at an apple orchard in the fall when I was in high school, and I don’t think I’ll ever stop missing warm cider on a chilly fall day.

The leaves do turn colors here at the end of November, but it’s brief compared to the several weeks when the leaves are golden in Indiana.

But I’m enjoying the cooler temperatures here, and I’m just happy to have the humidity out of my life!

Now for some good reads:

Now I’m off to enjoy the weekend. Happy Friday!

I hear ya. I grew up in Illinois, but now live in Texas. Texas doesn’t even have Fall as a season. :)

This weekend here in Southern Indiana has been perfect, Low 60′s during the day and high 40′s at night. With the wind blowing it’s even cooler.
