This week, let' talk about October. Toni sure enjoyed facts about the months and questions on that topic too.
1. What are your feelings about the month of October? Does it bring anything special to mind for you? Do you have memories to share?
I've always loved Fall! Some of my favorite memories are of being newlyweds in October as we were married in mid-September.
2.Have you ever gone apple picking? Pumpkin picking? Any kind of picking including banjo picking at all? Do you bake pies with those fruits?
I've been strawberry picking and berry picking but not apple or pumpkin picking. I've been to the orchard for apples but they were already picked, thank goodness!
3. What is autumn like where you live? How about when you were a child?
Seeing as I live where I did as a child, the weather here is usually the same in Autumn. Chilly mornings, warmer days (but not too warm), crisp air and warm smelling candles!
4.Autumn is not the same as Fall. Fall is the time when the leaves are actively falling. What activities of Autumn/Fall do you enjoy? Do you decorate your door or home for the season?
I did not know that! lol. I've always been under the impression that Autumn and Fall were synonymous. I don't decorate much other than one or two pumpkins and some mums on the porch. But I do start burning the yummy smelling candles I mentioned above .

1. How often do you blog? What helps you blog.. what hinders you?
I try to blog everyday. Having a "schedule" helps me. Lack of time hinders me.
2. What benefits do you get from blogging? Are there any?
I think there are many benefits from blogging. The one I truly started my blog for was the sense of community. I was a young mom with young girls when I started blogging. I found many new "friends" in the blogging world :)
3. Have you ever changed your blog theme?
Not really. My blog has always been "Colletta's Kitchen Sink". It has evolved over the years but I wouldn't say it has changed completely.
4. Where do you get your ideas for blog posts?

Cassidy Leblanc worked hard to shake off her tragic childhood. As a foster child with a mother in prison for murder, she was an outcast in her small New Hampshire town until she met James. But she and James’s sister, whom she was babysitting, were kidnapped. She escaped, but Hallie didn’t survive, and everybody assumed Cassidy killed her. Like mother, like daughter, after all. With public opinion and the authorities united against her, young Cassidy fled. Now, a decade later, another little girl has been kidnapped, and Cassidy may be the only person who can find her.
He doesn’t know who to trust.
James Sullivan never believed that Cassidy killed his sister, no matter what the authorities said. When his best friend’s daughter goes missing a decade after Hallie's murder, James keeps his opinions on the matter to himself. But when he finds Cassidy sneaking around his property, his thoughts turn dark. If she’s not behind the recent kidnapping, what is she doing back in Coventry? Her answer—that she’s returned to find little Ella, and she needs his help—has him reeling. Can he trust Cassidy, despite what the police tell him? If there’s any chance he can save Ella, he has to try.
Danger lurks on the mountain.
Together, they search for the elusive cave where Cassidy and Hallie were taken, but somebody will stop at nothing to make sure they don’t find it or, if they do, that they don’t come out alive.
Dawson Houser makes sure everyone who comes into the office knows I'm "just his secretary."
Heck, I've even said it to suppliers and CEOs when they smile knowingly at the two of us during business meetings. He scowls and grumps around the office afterward, as if the two of us dating is the most ridiculous thing on the planet.
Dawson can handle them. I can handle them—and him too, once they leave. And he's no picnic, let me tell you.
Who can't we handle?
When Lila Houser comes to town with her faux furs and fashion sunglasses, she only has one question for her spoiled rotten son: When are you going to get married, Dawson, darling?
I expect him to laugh and tell her he's never getting married. I mean, I've heard those exact words come out of his mouth.
Instead, he pulls me to his side and says, "Maybe sooner than you think, Mother."
Oh, that Lila Houser can make a woman feel two inches tall with a simple up-down look. I think I'm a pretty good catch...no matter what my last three boyfriends say.
When Lila says, "I thought Callie was just your secretary," I suddenly want to prove her dead wrong...
Get ready to laugh out loud in this hilarious, sweet workplace romantic comedy! The romance is clean, the jokes witty, and the office grump swoon-worthy.
