I thought October would never get here....

Happy October 1st!

I wanted to write a little somethin' somethin' to celebrate this new and hopefully cold month.

Sing the following lyrics to the tune, "These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things".
(And no, that's not Julie Andrews under the bag.)

Leaves that are falling and rust colored sweaters
Sending my college kids emails, not letters
Seeing how much a used textbook can bring
These are a few of my favorite fall things.

Rainy cold days with hot tea that is brewing
Reading instead of the chores I’m not doing
Wild geese seem smart as they leave until spring
These are a few of my favorite fall things.

No more white dresses or bleach for them needed
Labor Day’s passed so wear skirts dark and pleated.
Snuggling in hoodies with those pesky strings
These are a few of my favorite fall things.

When the dog barks
At the school bus
And my kids look sad
I smile and remember – still nine months of school!
And then I don’t feel.....so bad  :)
