A little of this and a little of that- mostly how I made "that" out of "this!"

October's Bright Blue Weather
Today is a beautiful representation of
October's Bright Blue Weather! The sky only gets this blue in October! The air is crisp and there was frost on all the car windows this morning. It is perfect weather for your favorite fall jacket! Time for a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream and cinnamon.
It tastes so much better when served in a Pumpkin Mug!
Does anyone have pumpkin donuts to go with this?
O sun and skies and clouds of June
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather;
When loud the bumblebee makes haste,
Belated, thriftless vagrant,
And goldenrod is dying fast,
And lanes with grapes are fragrant;
When gentians roll their fringes tight,
To save them for the morning,
And chestnuts fall from satin burs
Without a sound of warning;
When on the ground red apples lie
In piles like jewels shining,
And redder still on old stone walls
Are leaves of woodbine twining;
When all the lovely wayside things
Their white-winged seeds are sowing,
And in the fields, still green and fair,
Late aftermaths are growing;
When springs run low, and on the brooks
In idle, golden freighting,
Bright leaves sink noiseless in the hush
Of woods, for winter waiting;
When comrades seek sweet country haunt
By twos and twos together,
And count like misers hour by hour
October's bright blue weather.
O sun and skies and flowers of June,
Count all your boasts together,
Love loveth best of all the year
October's bright blue weather
Helen Hunt Jackson
Mom and I are going to enjoy this bright blue weather with a road trip tomorrow afternoon! What is your favorite way to enjoy fall?
