Welcome October!



Happy October everyone! Thankfully our Autumn weather has returned and is rumored to be here to stay now. Unfortunately it appears the rain is as well. (We're already over 2 feet above our normal rainfall for the year and we've roughly 3 more months left to go!)

It's been a busy couple of days, in the garden, out of the garden, haunting the halls & garden (aka decking the halls for Halloween) and such. The slideshow above gives a hint to the delightfully creepy & magical goings on around here! (More of which is to come throughout this month we call October!)

This morning I watched a lovely old suspense/horror movie entitled The Spiral Staircase from 1946 on TCM, a great way to spend the foggy morning of this the 1st of October! (To view the trailer and other information, just click here).

Today also marks the start of the Countdown To Halloween hosted by The Whimsical Cottage! (And this is my first post). I hope I'll be able to keep up with posting Autumn & Halloween fun daily! We shall see...

Time to get ready for a dinner we have to attend. What I really want to do is turn on the stove to warm up a mug of that spiced apple cider sitting in the fridge, snuggle under a throw on the couch, light some candles & watch the Doctor Who marathon running on BBC America today! But duty calls...
