just writing a little something about not much of anything
Up until today we've been given subtle hints that fall was just around the corner. School buses. Mums. Geese flying overhead. The first real urge/desire in months that I've had to bake something.... But today - sometime during the wee hours of darkness - it seems we turned that corner and fall arrived outside my door where pumpkins that we grew ourselves (I'm so proud of that!) adorn the front steps. And leaves on the trees are beginning to change into their rich autumn wardrobe. The chill in the air is - well - downright chilly this morning as I sit here in my living room with coffee close, a candle lit to cozy up my space - and I'm comfortable because I'm wrapped in a soft wool sweater and my toes are tucked snugly into warm wool socks. Malakai just wants to be nearby so I brought his blanket in here too.
I miss spending time here. Writing. I just wanted to pop in here and write something tho' it's not much of anything... just to get me started again. Planning to post some pics soon as they speak volumes about what we've been up to and will save me some time since I'm so far behind! Hopefully very soon I will feel as if I've caught up to now and more ready to move forward and to walk in step with fall around this corner that we seemed to have turned overnight. I know where it's leading .... Thanksgiving! Christmas! And I don't want to be left behind.
