Ah, just making it under the wire this week.
What a day!
Busy and not without mishap, so I am a little late getting this out.
But, here I am with Ten Things Tuesday.
This week is about why October is such a great month.
I was born in October. So, of course it has to be an awesome month. The 29th, in case anyone wants to send me a card or $100. Your call. I am not gonna be picky.
2. The harvest
Farmers will get the crops out so I can see something besides corn and soybeans. And maybe the cow will finally be found.
I love Halloween. It is my favorite holiday. I am not crafty and yet I managed to make most of Kiddo's costumes.
4. The killing frost
I love my garden, but I am ready to be done canning and freezing things. I am also looking forward to the end of ragweed season(Kiddo's allergic) and bugs.
They are so pretty and orange. I like all sizes. I grow pie pumpkins and jack-o-lantern size.
It is fun to make jack-o-lanterns.
6. Honeyman's birthday
His birthday is coming up on Saturday. He hasn't even come up with his birthday dinner yet.
That is what I do. Everyone in the house decides what they want for their birthday dinner and that is what I make.
7. New TV shows
A new season just started and so far the reruns haven't started yet. I love Criminal Minds(Yay for Emily and JJ being back) and Parenthood.
8. Too warm to snow
It isn't super hot anymore, but no snow and not -20 degrees yet. I hope I don't jinx it, because it has been known to snow in Iowa in October before.
9. Columbus Day
Because I really don't know what I would do without a holiday celebrating a man who really didn't discover America. Plus, he was a real nut job.
10. It's the beginning of the fiscal year
Why is this great? Because we all get to watch and learn how the federal government can screw things up even more by their fiscal irresponsibility. Party doesn't matter. They are all fiscally stupid.
OK, there you have it. And you just thought October didn't have much going for it.
