Today Buddy is busy preparing our family"s activity calendar. 
It will be full of events. 
Tonight we head to our local BIL's for dinner.
Not local BIL who visited since September 21 leaves October 2 and we have a visit to the dentist at 2.
October 4 we must attend Leif"s funeral at 1, a very sad occasion.
October 6  my sis and I fly to Europe for 10 days visiting family.
October 13 is the Canadian Thanksgiving.
October 21 Stradford Festival for a King Lear special performance. 
October 23 is sister's birthday.
October 24 Madame Butterfly Opera at the Four Seasons.
October 31 is Justin's birthday and Halloween.
Looks like this month will fly by just like all the rest.

Above are photos that Buddy and I have collected. The first two come from our walks in our neighbourhood. We love to walk and talk when the weather is nice. I liked the way the weeds pooped out at us through a fence. He spotted the maple leaf on the sidewalk. It's contrast to the concrete gave me a nudge. I just had to capture it for him. Finally there is one arrangement Buddy sleeked for our table centre because it has fall colours. He likes to help select floral arrangements with a seasonal look. I just love his taste!

How is your October shaping up?

No fall color in our southern climate yet, but Hubby is considering a FOURTH visit to the Smoky Mountains a few days before we are to spend a day with our four Georgia grandkids while their mom Sarah joins our son Walt on a business trip to a beautiful, historic Georgia city.So we will be busy, too. Loved the photos and appreciate Buddy's eye for striking subjects for you to capture with your camera.

Well, you have a busy month ahead. I can see why you need to have Buddy as your social secretary!

Dear Heidrun, October is shaping up to be a good month in that I hope to complete the rough draft of my convent memoir and then begin to polish and edit to get to a second draft. Also, I'm taking a short 8-hour course in watercolors. Two Saturdays, each four hours. The course costs only $34 and the materials are furnished. You just can't beat that!!!!

Besides that, one of my great nieces is getting married in November and her grandmother, my sister-in-law, is giving her a shower in October. So a good month!

Peace to you and Buddy.
