October Motivational Quote:

Grow Through What you Go Through

I love this picture. The beautiful fall colors of yellow, orange, red, and browns. This is a time of year that really inspires me. The colors of fall and the dramatically cooler temperatures. All of this makes me feel more alive and energized. So naturally, I can’t wait until the leaves begin to fall here in Kansas and the tress change colors.

October here in Kansas is a month where we can either have 90 degree temperatures or we could have 40 degree temperatures, and believe it or not this can all happen within a span of a few days.

This October has been no exception. We have had days of 90 degree and a few days later we are bundling up in our North Face coats and hats sitting at a football game trying to stay as warm as possible. Yes, I actually did this a few weeks ago!! It was so incredibly cold that night that we only stayed until half time! My daughter, on the other hand, toughed it out through the whole game. Not like she had much of a choice, she’s a bandie, band nerd, geek, whatever it is that you want to call those very talented kids who get out there and play for your high school half time entertainment. I have a feeling at this Friday nights game it will be no different! We are looking at a high of 53 degrees and a low of 39! Now that’s cold! What happened to fall!!

Anyway, it has been not only cold the last several days here, but it has been raining. Some areas around us have received more than 5 inches of rain in the last 3 days. We have a small river flowing through our pasture along with a pond on the other side of our house. This is very typical for us when we get a lot of rain! Hoping over the next few days everything dries up before it rains again this weekend or snows! Yes, that’s what I said, SNOW! I saw in a forecast that there is a small possibility of snow, which I doubt happens, but you never know.

Regardless, I hope that everyone is beginning to see the effects of fall around them and enjoying the changes of the seasons! I know I am.
