Anticipation


Sure it's been another hot week, sure summer is going strong.  But for me, I'm all eyes for the seasonal changes.  September is a hopeful month.


I like my drive to the new location for my babysitting gig. They moved to a bigger house last month and I was feeling all the sadness over the changes.   I drive through corn fields and farmlands and the views are stunning.  Everywhere I look while I am there is endless hills and quiet.  I took the toddler girl for a walk and all I could hear were my feet crunching on the gravel road and cicadas in the distance.


This week has been topsy turvy with stresses ebbing and receding.  However, life is settling down again.  Before I know it, we will be going to fall festivals and pumpkin festivals and fairs.  I'm ready!

I'm anticipating:  soups, cinnamon everything, apples, cold breezes, wearing a touch of wool, hot beverages, more falling leaves, cozy evenings, sweatshirts, socks....oh I could go on.

  5. Yesterday the temperature was around 95° until 5 pm. Then a front came in with strong winds and rain. As the wind blew, the first leaves of the season came fluttering down like confetti. It was beautiful. The temperature dropped 20 degrees, and now it's a wonderful 71! The sky is still storm cloud gray and birds are at the feeder. It *feels* like fall. I'm so ready for it after this year's hot, hot summer! I think I will brew a cup of spiced chai for my afternoon tea break. Enjoy your weekend, Karen.

  7. I love the autumn . I love it as long as it is not rainy. I saw pumpkins for sale at the grocer today. I bought caramel apples and at one. (no nuts) I bought a 3 pack to bring to Zach. Cool nights are heavenly here in the woods. I hope to pick some wild apples and pears soon for the horses. I love the house all opened up. Hope your sadness goes away!

  8. You and me both! I am SO over summer! Yesterday, we hit 94 degrees with a 'feels like' temp of 107. In September! Besides, fall is my favorite season, even when we haven't had an insanely hot and humid summer.

  21. What are those red berry-like things? How wonderful you are to babysit the toddler as the parents must feel so good to have their baby safe with someone they trust.
