October 2016 {Month in Review}

Pin It Now!

Kicked off October with some sign-making.

Fled the desert for a day to breathe in pine air and to gaze at golden forests in Flagstaff.


Harvested and dried some herbs from my tiny garden.


Enjoyed a few fleeting pops of fall color in my desert backyard.

Finished up homeschool literature study of Red: the true story of RED RIDING HOOD.


Designed and hung my first kitchen gallery wall using only on-hand items.

Drove to Sedona in search of a Red October.

sedona On our previous trip up north, we found gold leaves a plenty. This trip we hoped to score big with red . . . McDonalds First stop: eating at a fancy restaurant. img_4201 We did find a leaf to match my middle son's hair. sedona Pretty view, but only a couple of tiny specks of red. sedona Nice, but not much red here either. sedona Well, I spy with my little eye some man-made red, but not really a whole lot of red in nature. Golds and browns mostly, maybe a hint of red, but not exactly what what I'd set my heart on. sedona We decided to hike a little farther than planned, crossing a creek and climbing over fallen trunks and limbs. My husband veered off to the left at some point, and before long I heard him call, "Hey, come over here!" sedona Jackpot! Red, glorious red. :) sedona sedona-2016-8 sedona sedona sedona Sedona satisfied my craving for red leaves. Before we headed home, we stopped at one of Sedona's landmarks, Chapel of the Holy Cross, which I hope to cover in a future blog post.
