Ah. That lovely sound of acorns and their caps being crushed beneath your heels. Crunch.
It’s October and as the leaves just start to think about turning to a bouquet of color, the acorns have been on the ground for a couple of weeks now. Crunch.
Every time I walk home I am for those little caps that are like thimbles. Crunch.
Oh, I missed one. Should I back up and make sure I crush that one as well? Crunch.
It’s so incredibly satisfying to hear that crunch below your feet. Crunch. Crunch.
Every year I look forward to it. Like stepping into ice puddles and shattering the glass water. Crack!
Welcome to day one of my 31 days of October, entitled Fun, Fanciful & Factual. Which just means that I will be blogging my regular things: flash fiction, book reviews, and anything that catches my fancy. I shall attempt to keep up with every day typing. Gads, I’m already sorry I thought I could do this. Someone, stop me now.
I hope to be able to bring a bit of freshness to this blog, and my plan at the end of the month is to do a bit of housecleaning and revamping of the blog. It’s gotten a little cluttered, a little disorganized, and it would be nice to have it a touch more streamlined.
So, here’s to a month. Happy October everyone!
