Last day of September

It’s the last day of September and it’s chilly outside and my plants are getting brownish. In my neighborhood, there isn’t a lot of color changes in the trees, just yellowish leaf’s falling on the ground. We don’t have all the different kinds of trees that makes the fall season so colorful.

This morning I was reading on the internet 31 reasons why we love October. I don’t want to sound negative, but the Fall season isn’t one of my favorites. However, I want to give it a try and check which ones I do like. I won’t count in our family, we have around 35 birthdays in the month of October including my oldest son. And no matter the birthdays I don’t consider October one of my favorites.

I’m not bringing all 31 reasons from the article some of them sounds like a repeat.
Here is a few of them:
1- Trees began to change colors – I already mention we don’t have all the colorful trees. The leaves are just falling on the ground. You clean your yard and hours later you need to start all over again.
2- Fall décor- I love decorating with pumpkins and scarecrows. At this moment, I’ve one pumpkin on my porch. I’ll begin decorating very soon.
3- Sweaters- They are cute and soft; however, they make me sweaty and hot. (I know it’s the menopause)
4- Football season- I don’t watch football.
5- Pumpkin bars- I’ve a sweet tooth. I love them, however I’m not a great baker and I try to be far, far, away.
6- Hot cocoa- I make hot cocoa all the time. It’s one of my favorite drinks next to my coffee.
7- Apple cider- not my favorite.
8- Bonfires- We do the bonfires on the lake during the summer. We never do them in the fall, maybe it’s something I should think about it.
9- Pumpkin patch- I love visiting the pumpkin patch and walking in the corn maze.
10- Candy Corn- okay it’s one of my favorites
11- Candies- the article says we sees candies everywhere. I always see them no matter the season. I try to hide from them, too.
12- Scary movies- it’s true you can watch more scary movies during October, however you can watch them all the time it’s our perception to watch movies according to the season.
13- Read- they say we like to read more about this time of the year. I read all the time.
14- Blankets- they got me there. I love being covered in my favorite blanket.
15- Halloween- I love Halloween, the costumes, and the décor, however when it gets too cold and it’s already snowing the kids hide their costumes in their jackets.

I show I like a few things from October, however one thing it wasn’t on the list that I love. My favorite meal soups and chilly. Yum! Also, getting closer to my favorite season of all.

SoCS~ “oc” & JusJoJan Daily Prompt January 20,2018

October, in my family is the month of the birthdays. Of the 31 days of the month, 28 days we have a family member’s birthday. And no one has a birthday on the same day.

I’m glad for Facebook, because they send reminders of the birthdays. I’ll be lost or checking the calendar. After a few days sending birthday wishes I don’t know what to say anymore. I keep repeating myself.

October is coming to be expensive like Christmas. Beside of Halloween that I loved we have all the kid’s birthday parties. If I get invited I need to buy a present. Occasionally, I don’t know what to buy and I ended with a headache.

My oldest son’s birthday is October 20th. Also, I’ve nephews, nieces, sister, aunts, cousins born on the same month. My dad and my grandma also born in October both deceased. And for grandkids on my side, none.
