It's October First!

Without Him, I am nothing. 
Without Him, I am wretched. 
Without Him, I am lost.

It's raining here in Western PA. A nice, steady fall-like rain. Leaves are fluttering to the ground all around the trees and there's a chill in the air. I sit here with my slippers on (as we haven't started the wood-stove yet), flowery skirt and black top. Lunch is cooking...meatballs are in the oven and water is warming to a boil for the pasta. Meatloaf is made and put in the fridge, to cook later, for supper. Bread dough is be made into loaves later *as well as one loaf into cinnamon bread*!

How beautifully leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days.  ~John Burroughs

We are watching one of our nephews for a few hours today. He sticks to Madelyn like glue...prefers her over me or anyone else! It's sweet and she basks in each and every moment of it! They (the children) are all watching a movie, at the moment. I was watching with them for a bit while working on my knitting, but then had to stop to begin preparing lunch. As it cooks, I am just taking a few short moments to say *hello*! It's the very first day of 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.

~George Cooper, "October's Party"

It's a nice, slow fall day and I am enjoying it immensely! I hope, wherever you are, that you are enjoying your day, as well! Thanks for the visit!!


Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
