Crispy air and azure skies, High above, a white cloud flies, Bright as newly fallen snow. Oh the joy to those who know October!
Colors bright on bush and tree. Over the weedy swamp, we see A veil of purple and brown and gold. Thy beauty words have never told.  October!
Scolding sparrows on the lawn, Rabbits frisking home at dawn, Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain, All in harmony acclaim, October!
Brown earth freshly turned by plow, Apples shine on bended bough, Bins o’erflowed with oats and wheat, And satisfaction reigns complete.  October!
Radiant joy is everywhere. Spirits in tune to the spicy air, Thrill in the glory of each day. Life’s worth living when we say, October!

Joseph Pullman Porter
October…..half term….build up to Eid….Eid…parties…outings….short days…busy month ahead insh’Allah…
I asked for your Non-Fiction recommendations and I’ve taken notes….this is the list of ‘real books’ I am hoping to read through…October reading list, sounds grand doesn’t it?


And now I’m off to the library to get some books for baby and who knows I might get her a book on worms 😉 After all she is very interested on them whenever we are in the garden…interest led teaching I think they call it….ha ha ha….

Salaams y hasta la vista,
