Did you know that Country Home - the magazine we all missed
when discontinued some years back - is being published again?
I recently signed up for a subscription and received my first issue.
I love it for the articles, excellent print quality, beautiful photography
and a minimum of advertising.
The arrival of October, my favorite month, makes me realize
this year will soon be rolling to a close. For me there are
special birthdays this month - my own included. The always fun
North Carolina State Fair starts on the 11th. The last of the outdoor art
and music festivals will come soon, and it's the last month for our local
neighborhood Farmers' Market on Saturdays.
Nature's glorious colors presented by the trees, of which we have
plenty right around the cottage, will soon start here. Acorns are already
falling, pumpkins are arriving, and yesterday I bought my first pot of
beautiful rust colored chrysanthemums for the urn by the front door.
The wood pile is high and dreams of cozy winter nights by the hearth
are in my thoughts.
Are you ready for October?
Is it a favorite month for you too?
