**UPDATE TO PREVIOUS POST** I found out late Wednesday night that author Jan Karon mentioned my Mitford posts on her Facebook page (September 2, 2015) and linked to my blog. I was so honored to receive a shout-out from her! For those of you who are fans, she has a new book out now. You can find out more about it on the Jan Karon Facebook page.
Happy October everyone!

A beautiful month, but not so much at the moment. Are you all hunkering down ahead of the hurricane? I confess to being a little anxious; the ground is already like a wet sponge here, and more rain and strong winds are bound to bring trees down. I hope people along the coast will be safe.
I don't know about you, but I've got to get busy around here on my fall "day-core." ;) Have you been decorating for fall at your place? Since the weather promises to be nasty this weekend, I think it will be the perfect time to work inside -- also the perfect time to cook some comfort food. We had our first batch of chili and cornbread last weekend. Do you have a favorite comfort food?
Football seems to be in full swing now. It's a good thing I like football, since it's on the television four days a week at our house.
Last month, I told you about the "Maggie Hope" series I was reading. They were very enjoyable, and I have the newest one on my Christmas list. I've now discovered another good series by Canadian author, Louise Penny. These are great mysteries! I'm seriously having trouble putting them down.
Still Life is the first in the Inspector Gamache series. These are really well-crafted mysteries -- the best I've read in years. They take place in Quebec's Eastern Townships, and it sounds like a beautiful area. Now I want to travel there. :)
I'm currently reading the second book in the series. Are you reading anything interesting at the moment?
Thank you for your visit and I hope you stay safe and dry this weekend!
