Now that it's October, we're finally starting to enjoy some cooler days, and there are hints of fall everywhere.  The flowers in our garden are still blooming, but starting to fade, and there's a hint of red on our maple tree.  Before long, our back yard will be blanketed in crispy, crunchy leaves in all shades of red, burgundy and purple for our boys to jump in and stomp through.  The nights are getting colder, and by this weekend, we'll need to pull up our fresh basil and dry it for winter.  The thyme and rosemary are hardier in the cold temperatures, and there's no rush to get those dried, other than my wanting to get these tasks completed and to be finished with all the yard work until next spring.

At the grocery store, there are pots of brightly colored mums everywhere, piles of pumpkins, and so many varieties of apples and pears to choose from.  And the bins of nuts in their shells are out, too.  We always have a nut bowl sitting in the kitchen for the holidays, usually from November until after New Year's, and they make the best snack along with a cold crunchy apple.
