The month of Halloween

October has to be one of my favorite times of the year. The leaves are vibrant and gorgeous, the weather is crisp and not too warm or cold, and the promise of holiday festivities make it hard to sit still without smile. As we drive down the canyon everyday to head to school and work Eric and I pick out our favorite trees covering the mountains. My favorite tree is hot red and overlooks Deer Creek Dam. I love going to corn mazes, drinking fresh apple juice, eating chili with corn bread, and wearing my sweatshirts and sweaters again. Fall is just a comfortable season. I can sit by the fire with a good book and look out my window at the moutains that have flaming trees which look as if they are melting the snow beginning to settle on each peak. Yes, I will always love the fall.

Ah, ha, ha, ha, Staying Alive!

Yes I know it has been centuries since I have written last and no I was not touring Europe or sailing the ocean blue. Life caught me by the hand and has been taking me on a ride without any brakes. School has started again and with that comes less time to devote to the life of blogging and quite a few other things. Not to fret though, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I believe I will reach the light around April 24th or 25th. That's right ladies and gentlemen, I will be graduating from college! While I have loved school and how it has helped me grow, I get quite stressed at times. Here are the things I am looking forward to doing after I finished with college:

1. Start having a family

2. Spend more time cooking

3. Read

4. Go to the pool in the middle of the day on a weekday with Lindsey and Sadie

5. Do my visiting teaching before 8:00 at night

6. Paint

7. Work out in the morning

8. Clean the house more than once a month

9. Take a dance or yoga class

10. Study the scriptures more in depth

11. Go camping with Eric

12. Plant a garden

13. Clean out the closet in our second bedroom

14. Sell junk from closet on EBay

15. Do a little jig just because I can.
