October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace! — Attachments
I have a list of things that I’d like to accomplish this month:
- Autumn-y decorating to carry me through Thanksgiving
- Corduroy Tunic Sewing (I found some Wide Wale Corduroy!)
- Wash and put away my summer-y sweaters
- Start and finish Steve’s second sock!
- Clean out all the garden pots and tuck them away for spring!
I am really focused on getting those things done soon because later this month we will be heading to Presque Isle to spend some time… and I am really looking forward to that as well!
Finally… a huge thanks to Carole for inspiring me today! You are the best!
See you all back here on Wednesday with a New Sweater and a Pita Story!
A lovely lot of goals for this month. May the corduroy gods smile on you. I love that fabric!
That quote is just perfection! (Though I, for one, would prefer to be swaddled in wool, but I can deal with some corduroy, too!)
Can’t wait to hear the pita story!
Very do-able goals for the month. I should try making a new (more realistic) list.
Those are excellent October-y goals. And yes, I need to clean out my container plants, too, but not just yet.
I love the quote and your October goals sound like good ones. I’m working on bringing in my outdoor plants this week since it’s supposed to be 35 here Friday night. Looking forward to the pita story, and seeing whether it’s about pita the bread or pita the abbreviation!
A wide wale corduroy tunic sounds wonderful. You have a worthy list of goals for October. Happy October.
Your October sounds perfect … and that get-away!! (where did I read something recently about Presque Isle … I know it’s a place I’ve never been and it sounds wonderful, especially in late autumn) Enjoy!!
Your October sounds perfect — especially with that lovely get-away to Presque Isle! (And I just love wide-wale corduroy.) XO
I LOVED Attachments – that quote is perfect. I can’t wait to follow along with you this month. Your goals look like so much fun! And a trip to Presque Isle sounds lovely and I know you’re really looking forward to it!
October is a very good month! Love your list and I’m on a second sock for my husband and yet I keep casting on another gnome. (they are Christmas presents!)
I am inspired by Carole’s idea, too! Thanks for the link.
