You know it is October when:
- The Cal Bears have folded early for the season and the 49ers are thinking about it, and the SF Giants are watching the post-season from home.
Mini pumpkins are in my big glass vase, along a new sparkly witch and the much weaker light of the fall.
- We've got a cord of wood delivered and stacked and the wood stove is keeping us toasty and warm as I assume my yearly role of HearthMistress.
- Moosewood Carrot Soup was enjoyed thoroughly by my family as well as some friends of my teenager. They were surprised to know that it was mostly just carrots.
- Jeans and socks are now being worn every day instead of shorts and sandals.
