I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
~ Anne of Green Gables
Is there anything quite like the colours of October?
I'm with Anne!
It was a lovely month!
We were a few days late in celebrating Maggie's birthday this year...
so her September birthday had an October party.
On a lovely Sunday afternoon we took a walk along the Vedder River trail with the kids...
...and their dog.
Ryder spent the first month of the school year with his arm in a cast...
and was happy to have it come off shortly after this outing.
Some come to walk.
Others to fish.
So thankful to the Rotary Club of Chilliwack for the trail that runs along the river.
We had beautiful weather on the Thanksgiving weekend...
and went for a walk at the Cheam Wetlands Park on the Sunday.
It's another jewel in our neighbourhood!
A quiet one.
Our fifth and final cut of grass for the year happened on October 11th.
It's always a good feeling to be done the harvesting for the year.
Just down the road from our place...
the cranberry harvest for the year was happening.
There's nothing like a splash of red to brighten a grey day in October!
There were plenty of grey days this month.
And lots of rain.
But when the sun came out...
...the colours were amazing!
It's hard not to take pictures!
As the sun sets on October...
...I am spending some time far from the 'green grass of home'.
It's a time for reading, relaxing, spending time with family and friends...
and enjoying the sunshine.
Every single day.
It rarely rains in the desert!
I'll be home soon.
