“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne Of Green Gables
When October is half way through I get excited. The twinkle light season is finally here. Lights around a room, around a tree, within pumpkins, all make me happy. A storm is brewing on the Pacific and just might bring high winds. If the electricity goes out, more twinkle lights.
This is the month of my birth. Thank-you, Mama. Candles on cupcakes, or nestled into wreaths just are the very bestest of bests.
My island really loves Halloween. The close to a hundred pumpkins, at the local coffee shop, start parading a few days before. Then on Halloween night they all light up. Heaven!
And, not to be forgotten, a few weeks before Halloween the solstice brought out the luminaries around Paradise Valley streets. All to please the eye and warm the heart.Of course, there's Christmas coming.....
