October is here! In my head I always think of October as my birthday month since my birthday is so close to Halloween. Now that I've settled into work, most of my goals for this month revolve around doing quintessentially fall things... minus the pumpkin spice lattes. I had one the other day for the first time and.. no thanks. I'm more of a savory pumpkin fan and I'm pretty sure I've only had pumpkin pie once. Maybe I'm not used to the taste?
Apple Festival: There's an apple festival in Bayfield, WI that I am SO excited to go to this weekend. I plan on buying a lot of apples and apple cider and generally just having a good time.
Make Apple Things: Since I'll be coming back with pounds upon pounds of apples, I really want to store up for the winter and make things like apple butter, apple sauce, pie filling, and all that good stuff.
Go Pumpkin Picking: This is a weird one, because although carving pumpkins is cool, I would really love to go pumpkin picking for the sake of eating the pumpkins, not destroying them. But most pumpkin patches don't grow pie pumpkins. Hrm. I have spied a farm stand that sells some really great looking pie pumpkins though so maybe I'll just buy a ton from them.
Make Pumpkin Things: Soup! Pie! Granola out of seeds! Other things I've never eaten! You get the idea.
Craft it Forward: I'm going to finish the craft it forward items and send them out this month!
Project 333: I'll be talking about this later in the week. Basically, I'm only going to wear 33 items of clothing for the next three months. Whew!
Finish Crocheting Blanket: I started a blanket a while ago and would love to finish it before my birthday (it's on my 22 before 22 list!). I'm making some progress so I'm sure I'll get this done if I just stay on task for once.
Go on a Fall Hike: The whole leaves-changing-color is unusual for this Washingtonian. I have a list of fall hikes specifically meant for viewing all the pretty leaves and I'd love to go on a few this month.
Looks like this month is going to be filled with yarn, apples, and pumpkins galore! A bloggers perfect October right? What do you have planned for this month?
