October again so that means Blogtoberfest.  I've signed up again and hope that blogging will stimulate knitting and vice versa.  Things are fairly slack on both fronts.  There's a nifty new button, you can see it up there on the right side bar and clicking on that should link you to Tinniegirl who's hosting this event.  At her blog there's also a link to the giveaway page at Curlipop's blog.  Not that I'm suggesting anyone is mercenary enough to read a blog just for the giveaway. LOL.  However, last year I won some lovely gifts and even better, discovered  some blogs I did not know were out there.  Many of those are in my bookmarks folder still and quite a few have been added to my reader's feed. (Google reader, by the way is simple to use, both to enter and read updates.)

If it's October, then that means it's almost daylight saving time.  Changeover is this coming weekend in NSW.  I'm waking early already, so will welcome it.  It's pretty cool here today after a few much warmer days.  It was 10° as shown in the Herald at 7:00 am this morning.  It hasn't been that cool for several weeks.  Much more pleasant for sleeping when it's cooler.

If it's October, then Christmas will be here before we know it.  Plans are afoot here, but nothing's finalised yet.

And if it's October, it means I have a lot on towards the end of the month.  I'm not looking forward to much of it, in fact my body tells me I'm nervous, even when I have not been dwelling on it.  However, it should mean the conclusion of one part of my life and the beginning of another.

So, let October roll!
