Mondays are generally a longer-post day, but #life. So today, enjoy the second installment of the Best of October, and look forward to Thursday’s post.
A Movie on my Must-Watch List
It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
I know lots of people love Snoopy and the Peanuts characters, but for me, it’s a Bushaw thing. I remember my grandmother having stuffed animals, books, and newspaper clippings of Snoopy and his friends throughout the house, for all occasions and seasons. And even though she had every Charlie Brown special recorded on VHS tape, she would always, ALWAYS watch the specials when they aired. It was before the days of DVR and streaming, friends, so Grandma would look up the time in the tv listings in the Sunday paper and make sure she noted the day and time. And, I don’t know, I guess that ingrained this tradition in me. Watching Linus wait with such hope and expectation for the coming of the Great Pumpkin will always make my heart happy. It’s expected to air on ABC again this October; unfortunately, it’s not available to stream on any platforms.
A Taste of Fall
This is short and sweet today: Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte. The flavors go together perfectly. It’s still warm enough in Iowa that you could enjoy it iced, or get it hot, put on your boots and head out on an adventure.
(And yes, Marge at Pie Eyed can hook you up with this.)
Oh my - did you check out the amazing Iowa weather this weekend? If there were an example of absolute perfection, this was it. The leaves were perfect for a drive through the country. Every fall I just marvel at the beauty around me. And you know what is the most beautiful thing about it? It’s an object lesson on the beauty of aging. Everything around us is aging and passing on, and we celebrate it and enjoy it! A sweet lesson to remember.
What was your autumn adventure this weekend? Let me know
