October in central cal

This Indian summer we’re having is pretty heavenly. The smell of a California Fall is exactly what I thought it’d be. The days are warm and makes for the perfect tanning weather. Our “hidden beach” is our home away from home lately. We pack a lunch, pop a squat Pretty Woman style and take in the rays and sound of ocean waves.

We recently discovered a family of bats in our neighborhood. And let me tell you — they’re spooooky! Maybe it’s that time of year – the witching hours? I run for my life when they come swarming down. Lucy needs to pick it up! Even in the middle of the night we hear the owls {love!}. I don’t mind waking up at 2 a.m. to listen to them; one in particular likes to sit in the tree outside our window. I smell Halloween in the air and already marked two things off my list. Because our master bedroom fireplace can’t support big fires {only those duraflame logs}, I decided to use that space in another way. I think I need more pumpkins. And candles. It’s a start! By the way, if you’re looking for a good scent for the Fall, you MUST stop in to Pier 1 Imports for the Autumn Leaves scent. It’s delicious and makes you want to cozy up with a glass of red and a book, or listen to Duffy and start cooking. Strange how a scent can do that, right? ;)

What are you doing to get in the spirit of Halloween? What are you dressing up as??
