Thank you ladies for hosting!
It's hard to believe October is past already, and now we're staring the holidays in the face! What did October look like around here?
To begin with, with the cooler weather, the flowers go crazy.

|Wild flowers find their color again after the heat of summer.|
|Summer annuals put forth a last hurrah.|
|The light hits the trees differently.|
The roses LOVE the cooler air.
And I love the roses. :)
We had our very first five-egg day. Every hen accounted for!
Inside, the changing light shows up what needs to be cleaned and refreshed before the busiest time of year hits. I don't really DO spring cleaning. It happens in the fall when I can be more assured of pleasant temperatures.
We cleaned kids' rooms. The mirrors from the bath project are on his bed here.
We even organized(the clothing part of)closets. I still have tons of stuff in the kids' closets from when we first moved in and they didn't need so much of their own storage space. Bad Mom! :)
We redid the kids' bath upstairs:
The Boy had a birthday.
We took the Boy to the mall on his birthday. Only two wanted to ride the carousel this time. The others have gotten "too big". :(
I wonder how much longer she will be happy to be seen with her best friend, Kit. She got to ride her big sister's favorite horse THIS time.
We visited my home church for Homecoming Sunday.
My dad was bugging the Boy to distraction.
Needless to say the grandparents were glad to see the children!
Her flowers were really putting on a show, and I love the long tree shadows across the yard.
There were "treasures" to be had at Goodwill:
Love the roses and the Octobery-orange rim!
A third vase like the two that flank my mantel right now. It was lonely!
And this unmarked, mushroom cottage cookie jar. It's a mystery to me!
Any ideas how old it might be?
One more flower shot. C's morning glories, on a sunflower stalk. :)
I hope your October was just LOVELY. And as we head into November, hold on tight!
