The Official Catgirl Island Mews & Announcements for October 2015, nya!
Aloha, nya! October is the purrticularly festive month, and the spookier one at that, because although it is still quite the purrennial sunny, clear bikini weather here, the Mid Atlantic Breeze wafts by with the occasional chill and unexplained phenomenon at night, as the appurritions might be roaming amongst the residents, nya! Thusly it is the purrfectest time to celebrate the Halloween fun by purrticipating in our county's lovely arts, foods, decorations, and the popular Trick 'R Eat and Cosplay Purrowl, nya!
The festivities across the island and the waters of Mew Hanover County range from beautiful downtown Purrbank and the lush maritme forest, to the merfolks' grotto and their deep kelp maze, nya! October's astrological signs continue with Libra from September and end with Scorpio into November, nya! The birthstones of the month are Opal and Tourmaline, but if the purrecious gem is too purricey the gift for that special kemonomimi, mermaid, taur or faerie, then we suggest the fragrant fall flowers, nya!
Those could be arranged into the floral lei, tail corsage, the bouquet upon the suppurr table or in the pots upon the veranda, nya! In addition to Halloween, there are other observances & holidays and such as Columbus Day, Teachers Day, the NC State Fair, our local Opal Matsuri and Calendula Purrade, nya! The island's fishing forecast purrdicts yet another numcious bumpurr crop of the Bluefish, Groupurrs, Mackerels, Snappurs, Speckled Trout, Striped Bass and tasty Tunas to tempt the tummy, nya!
You know, the boutiques of the riverwalk and the far-mers market have many purretty bikinis in the fall colors to nicely frame the seafood - filled tummy, nya! In addition to the angling, the autumnal activities to catabolize the calories include the swimming, diving, surfing, sailing, golf, tennis, kites, softball, cycling, hiking, purrkour, yoga, hula, belly dance, hot salsa dance, kyudo, jujutsu and the beach volleyball, nya! After the fun activities, delicious dinners and relaxing catnaps, purrhaps y'all might like to see
