I've been working two jobs this month, which has seriously eaten into my wandering-in-the-outdoors time. I have had a few nice walks this week though. October has moved from unseasonably warm, to full-blown Fall. Storms have been blowing in and out of the Valley for days now. We lost power briefly when the high winds knocked a tree into some power lines, but damage has been at a minimum, thankfully.
We are being warned of very low temps coming next week as well as a chance of snow. It's not snowed this early in decades, I think, so it will be interesting to see what happens. I still have a few herbs in a sheltered location that need to be brought in and dried. I'm hoping I find the time to get to them before the weather turns.
This weekend I'm heading to a Samhain Festival. I'm really looking forward to experiencing some different teaching and rituals. I've also got to fit in a visit to the haunted corn maze and the farm stands to buy pumpkins before Halloween.
I hope your October weekend is wonderful!
