Lusty October

by on Oct.14, 2011, under Quirky Places

This picture would really capture October's aura if it was taken at nightfall, oak trees lurked in the background (not a tropical palm), and candles flickered between the pumpkins. That'd be dreamy.

October is the most romantic month of the year.

The weather dips, food turns creamier and cozier, and the world gets colored in toasty hues.

And don’t forget about those chesty gourds. Ahh, yes…

Pumpkins are at the heart of October’s lusty, candlelit drama.

As the plump, pushy mascots of October, they rouse you to eat harvest foods and carve jack-o-lanterns. And they remind you that in a few short weeks, rugrats will be banging on your door, asking for free candy.

Which is fine, because lounging on the couch watching “Dracula” and occasionally getting up to chuck candy at tiny monsters and fairies sounds like a blast to me.

Here’s to a sultry October, filled with thick red wine, dark chocolate and spicy pumpkin anything…

That's more like it.

    Ah that’s more like it. I love your re-creation. I think I’m going to bake a sugarless pumpkin pie for Halloween. Hmmm I can hardly wait to taste it!!!

    This made me laugh audibly. Very funny post, Wander Woman! I love to see your imagination at work in the second pic… so so funny.

    October is one lovely month. We’ve been playing in the leaves, hay and grass all week. We are so ready to get Chloe in her costume too.
