This is a view from my back yard, it seems like only yesterday it was hot and humid and sticky. Oh so rapidly has the weather changed to fall and today was my first day to wear a jacket AND a wool shawl. My my, I have been anticipating this season forever and now I'm afraid it will go whizzing past. So every day I stop, think, savor and let all my senses be filled with autumn.
My weekend went by in a blur of activity. The kids came home Friday at different times and Frodo was extremely happy and extra wiggly to see each of them. I love how dogs are expressive and give fully of themselves to the moment. Lots of talking and laughing. I have heard about many new friends and my kids are quick to pull up Facebook for faces to match names I've heard during phone calls.
With the kids came the backpacks, suitcases, books and various items strewn about my house. I have found out that I can ignore most of the visual clutter for 48 hours. (practice makes perfect) Hand made knits were dispensed (hat and cowl) and lucky for me the kids were thrilled. As you know that makes them knit worthy.
So as I sit here right now this Sunday afternoon, my kitchen and family room are clean. My laundry awaits my attention and it's very very quiet-the weird kind of quiet. Frodo is napping recovering from sensory overload and I am waiting for a cup of tea to cool off to sip.
How was your weekend?
