October Currently (and Halloween FREEBIE!) from Carol's Garden

I'm late to the party! It's time to join Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for this month's Currently!

October Currently!
It's wild weather week in eastern Tennessee! Last week it was hot and humid, with temperatures in the 90's. Over the weekend it dipped down into the 30's. (I honestly thought we might have an early snow, an idea which made my winter-loving daughter squeal with delight.) Tonight we're back to crazy thunderstorms, with the wind and rain lashing the rooftop, plus frequent flashes of lightning followed by deafening crashes and BOOMS! As an ex-California girl, I am still amazed by Tennessee weather patterns, none of which I am used to experiencing!


Got Lightning?


I am loving the cooler fall weather, though. I don't do hot and steamy, and my summer air-conditioning bill reflects that. ;)

Halloween decorations are going up in all the stores, along with the constant invitations to purchase shopping carts loaded with candy. As a kid, I demanded we stock only the "good" candy, like mini candy bars dripping with chocolate and gooey caramel. Yum!



As an adult, however, I am dreading allowing this constant temptation into my house. I would wait until the last minute to buy it, but then all the yummy stuff is gone. If I buy it too soon, then I know we'll just eat it all and I'll have to buy more, anyway! Plus, I want to be able to fit into my pants after Halloween has come and gone!



I love sweets (they are my weakness!), but I actually love fresh fruits and salads even more. I try to eat healthy, but I tend to go for the quick fix if I'm making something for myself. I also hate housework! Why can't I just clean and organize it once and have it stay that way? (Oh, that's right, I have children!)

I'll plant anything to attract butterflies!

I also love to garden, but hate pulling weeds and pruning trees and bushes. Yech! I want to plant beautiful, edible gardens which attract birds, butterflies, and people, (and I'll work all my muscles and sweat like crazy to accomplish this!) but I really hate to mow the lawn, rake the leaves, or clean the gutters! I would love to have a personal chef, housekeeper, and "gardener" to do all these things for me!

Of course, this is also part of the reason I need more hours in the day, although I'm not sure there could ever be enough! That's probably why I'm so late with this post, too! :D

If you've read this far, thank you! As a token of my appreciation, here's a freebie for you. I am NOT putting this in my store. It's only for my blog readers! Just click on the picture to download. :)

Halloween Treat Labels Freebie!
