It’s fitting that the early days of October are filled with this particular color.
The leaves are not changing yet; the days are still fairly warm – summer is trying to linger. We don’t have any pumpkins out here at home but they’ve started to show up in piles outside the local grocery stores. Even so, there are glimpses of the season to come all throughout my day.
There’s the sherbet that I chose for a bedtime snack. I set up my October calendar tonight and used a liberal amount of orange washi tape to decorate. My doodles aren’t all that fantastic, but it makes the month feel a bit more festive. Atlas shed tonight and he is a vivid shade of orange, although I think there is more yellow shimmering through on his sides. Watching his colors develop over the last year or so has been an absolute joy.
EDIT: My beautiful boy…
I am so ready for autumn. I yearn for long sleeves, crisp air and the explosion of colors it brings. There aren’t many trees that change in my hometown and the ‘new’ hasn’t worn off for me since the move to East Texas!
