 It's all going to work out fine.  In all the chaos today about the shutdown, life goes on, pretty much, I imagine, the way it did before the government was involved in everything we do.

The air is crisp and the sun is still warm on your skin.  The colors of the leaves are magnificent and the sky is a glorious blue.  Such beautiful days you just want to open up your arms and try to keep it all.  And it feels so good to close up the house in the evening and enjoy the cozy warmth that isn't there in summertime.  My little cottage awaits me for a quiet moment in the autumn day.   
This is a good month, a month of celebration for me.  God is good.      Diane

God is good all the time. I hope you get to enjoy that cute little cottage a few more times before winter.

What a cosy spot for a cup of tea and then a snooze!
I've been following the news - it certainly is a mystery from this vantage point. I hope it all sorts itself our for your wonderful country.

Thanks for sharing a little gratitude and sweet thoughts in the midst of a tangled government mess. All you can control is what is around you. I wish I could be in your cottage sharing a cup of coffee and beautiful conversation. xobean

I, too love October. It's strange, I am 50 and I do not think that I realized how much I loved October until this year. Your words and photos inspired me too!!
