Right now October's my favorite month. I love the fall leaves and the way the air feels and smells.
I hope you all had a good month. Did any of you dress up for Halloween? What did you dress up as? I was a man in black to begin with, but later that changed to undertaker, SHIELD agent and penguin. Oh well. What books and movies did you enjoy especially in October? xx
