” I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers”

Anne of Green Gables said it all…

Dear Reader:

October 1! Just saying October out loud makes me happy! Like Anne… I can’t imagine a world without this most popular month!

Today I picked out a few of my favorite quotes about October to share with you.

How true! We wait and wait-especially in the Lowcountry, surviving one hot humid day after another and suddenly the North Wind brings us the first. dry cool day and we are so excited! We go shopping for sweaters!

Yes! The leaves take center stage pushing the flowers behind them!

Love you and have missed you notes mysteriously appear in post offices addressed to ” someone” named October!

This quote speaks for one and all!

Apples and Apple Cider-can’t get much more October than that…

All I can think of is my first fire of the season -it will come one evening this month! I can hardly wait!

October makes me appreciate living in a region that gets to taste all four seasons… though some of our seasons last longer-it just makes us appreciate every glorious moment that we can squeeze from October!

So until tomorrow…

Love love love you October!

” Today is my favorite day” Winnie the Pooh

Don’t forget! It is the first day of the month! Say ” Rabbit Rabbit” and have the most amazing October of all!

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”
