Hello, October!

Hello October! You are my favorite, with your leaves and chilly winds and the best holiday ever, even better than my birthday.


(I don't know where this came from. Someone sent it to me and said, "This is you," and basically, it is. A cat, wearing a scarf, reading something, and drinking tea.)

October:
Knee Socks
Leaves
Cider Donuts
Apple Orchards
Plaid
Halloween
Cold Noses
Hot Chocolate
Scarves
Tweed
Corduroy
Being Creepy



"Oh," cried Marianne, "with what transporting sensations have I formerly seen them fall! How have I delighted as I walked to see them driven in showers about me by the wind! What feelings have they, the season, the air, altogether inspired! Now there is no one to regard them. They are seen only as a nuisance, swept hastily off, and driven as much as possible from the sight."

"It is not everyone," said Elinor, "who has your passion for dead leaves."
-Sense and Sensibility

I think I used this quote last year, but it is so perfect, that I do not care if I am guilty of repetition.


The Sartorialist


Edit 10/3:
Photobucket kicked itself, so we're trying something different now. Booo, fail!

  1. I am a November girl myself in terms of fall (my favorite month of the year is August), but I welcome the change of seasons and fun fall traditions!

  4. You are so right. Tweeds and plaids and wool are my main fashion reasons for loving this month. The reds, the oranges, the yellows. Rusty colors that are oh so warm. How can anyone dislike it?

  15. October is my favorite, too! Lately, I've been having a rough time adjusting to the cold, but once I'm actually prepared with scarves and sweaters and gloves and the whole shebang, I like it a lot. Really lovely post. I saw that Sart picture ages ago and still can't get over it.

  26. Its the October's winter parentage that has forced me to imagine in my dream(at 2 am in the morning!) that the distress I was feeling was maybe due to some code not working properly on Puppy Linux!(weird as dreams are, and as false as they come, it just broke as i suddenly awoke)
    Turns out its nothing that fancy. Its just the cold winds of the hour filling the bedroom and ceiling fan adding to temp drop, which has caused my congenital inflammatory patches in the mucous lining of the nasal cavity to flare up and become harbingers of that great unique pain and throbbing of a Cold which only I seem to have on the planet (has happened for the millionth time now)
    Had to get up and make a hot cuppa tea with ginger at this odd planetary hour. Took an anti-allergic although I have no idea why anti-allergics like CPM work when the symptoms have been brought on by the "coldness" of temp, or rather lack of "hot blood" as someone from last century might say.

    Welcome winter. But I love the weather otherwise.
