the apples and plums are almost ready
above: i tore down a piece of old fence by myself... i had been wanting to tear that old piece of wire down for years and it was so easy... and it felt so good.
below: the view from our backyard... i am a very lucky girl.
the girls are so in love with "our family" from the knothole tree
the sweet end of summer... always so full... with this heavy anticipation of change.
we have been quite busy... mostly gathering with friends and family soaking up the last bit of a very flexible schedule... and preserving as much harvest as possible... and hoping to fit in a couple outdoor projects before the dry weather is gone.
with so many things constantly requiring my attention indoors... i must remind myself, frequently, to get outside and soak up that dry warm sunshine before it turns to rain and chill.
i have been ready for the change for awhile though. i love a good change.... especially a seasonal one. i think one of my favorite things about a change in season is the stillness it always seems to bring with it. a stillness in our schedule, and an excited energy in our hearts.
and with that change i will also be finding myself in this space more and i am quite excited about that dear friends... there are so many things i have been wanting to share with you... soon.... very soon.
