Welcome October

October holds many special days for me...our Anniversary, my Birthday, my sis R's Birthday, my Niece L's Birthday, Halloween...and this year, a trip to Manitoba and Ontario to visit my sis K and her family after spending the first weekend at a Wellness Day that my bestest friend is speaking at. Welcome October!

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."
