October is pumpkin month.  Within a few weeks, most of the leaves will be off the trees and it will start getting colder.  After Halloween everything in the stores will be catered toward the holidays.


I like the above inspiration.


I like roasted butternut squash.  It can be used in a soup or fall salad with kale, cranberries and walnuts.  Or any number of ways.  It’s such a Fall classic.  I bought a butternut squash, peeled it and cut it up and then roasted some of it and put it in a Fall salad.   I have one of those machines that takes the air out of those freezer bags and saved the rest of the cubed squash for another salad or for soup.


There is a certain time of day when the sun hits just over distant trees and highlights them.  It’s so pretty.

I like the above chart regarding healthy relationships.


Vermont is really beautiful this time of year.  The foliage doesn’t last long enough though.  After the peak of color, the leaves fall off the trees.  But it’s so beautiful while it lasts.

I love oatmeal in the morning.   Believe it or not, there is oatmeal under all those toppings.

  1. Hi Linda, we are looking forward to spending a few days in VT at the end of this month from our neighboring NH home (Nashua). Hopefully, we will still be able to see some colors before the leaves are all down. The stores no longer wait until after Halloween to display Christmas trimmings and most (sadly) already have it up. I also enjoy oatmeal and also top mine with Greek yogurt and add honey and cinnamon.
