October; You’re Perfect: Bucket List

October’s Party

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came –
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.” 
― George Cooper

15 Things to do in October

October is about half way through, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy some festivities.

  • Go to the Cider Mill – Try going to a new cider mill. Pick up a gallon of cider and some fresh cinnamon donuts.
  • Drink Hot Cider with Rum – After you pick up your cider, try the adult version. Warm it up by the stove or microwave, using care not to burn it. Mix in some rum and a dollop of butter. Stir until melted. Top with a dash of cinnamon.
  • Make a Halloween Costume – Get creative and look for fun costumes for the whole family.
  • Go for a Walk Down a Path with Trees Changing Colors – If you live in a seasonal climate take some time to disconnect and go for a long walk. Have alone time or go with someone. Don’t forget your Pumpkin Spice Latte!
  • Have a Bonfire and Roast Marshmallows – The weather is going to start to get chilly quickly. Enjoy warming up by a fire and toasting some marshmallows before bonfire season stops.
  • Play in the Leaves – Rake them up and toss them around. I love making a big pile and watching my dogs burst through them chasing after a tennis ball.
  • Carve Pumpkins – Set them out on the porch and admire your designs by putting a tea light candle in them.
  • Watch Disney Halloween Movies  – My personal favorites are Hocus Pocus and Halloween Town. Practical Magic is also fun for an adult spooky movie.
  • Make Chili – This is a fun tradition for Halloween. You can make it a head of time and heat it up after everyone has gone Trick 0r Treating. Make a beef chili and top it with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of yellow cheese, and some Fritos for crunch! Yum!
  • Go Trick-or-Treating – Obviously, Rain or Shine, it’s Trick or Treating Time! Rain or Shine, It's Trick or Treating Time www.goodlifeofahousewife.com
  • Make Roasted Pumpkin Seeds – Roast low and slow 300 degrees for about 45- 60 minutes. Check to make sure they are golden but not burned.  Try a new flavor or adding different seasonings.  I added cinnamon sugar to my pumpkin seeds this year. It made for a delicious new take on the classic salted pumpkin seed.
  • Sit on the Porch while it Rains  – If you can be so lucky to catch an afternoon storm, enjoy it from your porch with a glass of cider.
  • Have a Harry Potter Marathon – So many movies, so little time. October is the perfect month for a Harry Potter Marathon. Surprise your family with some Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans
  • Sit in a Park and Observe the Changing Leaves – Check out a local park or find a special one. We stumbled across this gem on travel’s through the mitten.
  • Wear Red Flannels with the Family – Bust out those red flannels and take some family photos. It’s Lumberjack Season!
