  • the rain has begun... and according to the ten day forecast... there is no end in sight.
  • we built our first fire today... it is cozy, warm, and wonderful... replacement sunshine on a gloomy day.
  • i'm having great fun organizing new activities and projects for "big kids"... and am actually able to leave them out and available without a complete disaster! so many possibilities! 
  • apples are winding down. there are still more to be picked, but i will just have to wait and see what is left after these storms pass through. i have three boxes that are ready and i am going to sauce now, and the rest will get juiced with the next break in the weather.
  • sports are also winding down. this is the last week of practices and this weekend brings the last games of the season. i must admit i had SO much more fun than i thought i would (especially with the football). i have never had an inkling of interest in football... EVER... but... everything changes when your kid is out there doing great and having a blast with his friends. he says he may play soccer next year... and i say i will support him whatever he chooses... but could we please take this next season off? he agreed (thank goodness).
  • all sorts of fun "indoor" activities piling up on my desk... just waiting for this weather.... aaahhhh... i am so ready to settle in.

cow fishing

of all the things to love about this life... moments like this surely hit the top of the list

this friend finds herself in our yard each evening, and most mornings

fall stamps... i'm a bit behind in posting on all this... that pumpkin has himself a jack o'lantern face now... i need to carve at least one more... i have started a seasonal project... for myself... three stamps for each season... any recommendations?

finding autumn

the weather here has felt more like summer than autumn lately... but i do feel that subtly starting to shift. we see it in the foggy mornings... we see it in the trees... and now we see it in our home. oh, how i love their excitement for seasonal decorating. especially this year as we bring out the art they made when they were "little" and hang it with the rest of the decorations. i also can't seem to visit a grocery store (with kids in tow) and leave without a pumpkin... or a gourd... or some fabulous winter squash.yes, little bits of autumn here and there... i love it.
and i will take whatever "summer" weather comes my way, because i know that very soon it will be gone... and after a few months i will really start to miss it.
