Volunteers and Dragonflies
September has been delightful with cool air in the mornings, wearing sweaters and windows flung wide opened to catch that chill in the air. After lunch, the heat of the day has built up and summer once more swells and heats my days.
We didn't plant a vegetable garden this summer because of the wedding planning and my husband's busy work schedule (that we are still adjusting to each day). However, Mother Nature has graced us with volunteer tomato plants! Frodo and I walk by them each day to pick the cherry tomatoes.
He still remembers his yellow jacket sting, every time any insect buzzes near him, he is more than ready to run-run-run. Silly, but I would be the same way. I used to be afraid of bees and dragonflies as a child. I cannot explain the dragonfly fear, I'm guessing it is the hum of the wings and the way they dart. Now I think they're quite pretty.
Most mornings are started with writing, praying and a short yoga routine. I'm finding this a perfect way to start each day, as I move through the positions I'm grateful for what my body can do. The daily walks are challenging because of fall allergies, I've got a long long time for the first frost. So after a walk I usually have a sinus headache! However, the dirt road is more weedy than the paved road so maybe it's just changing where I walk. Oh well.
Have a great weekend!
