Autumn never lasts long, it seems. At least not long enough as far as I’m concerned. I tried to get out as much as I could and take as many pictures as possible. I enjoyed almost every delicious day of it when I wasn’t crazy busy with school activities and the elections.
Still, Fall is always fleeting. And then one day, you look up and it is nearly Winter – which I love as well but Fall holds a special place in my heart. Fall is my season.
It has been a very hectic and dramatic several months. I feel like I have been traveling at warp speed. We lost a dear friend and one of my uncles had a mild stroke which scared the wits out of me. I cannot bear the thought of losing either one of my uncles.
Last weekend was my daughter’s seventh birthday and the first weekend in –well — I cannot tell you how long where we did not do anything. We went to my mom’s and celebrated our little girl’s birthday (she wanted frog legs and cheese pizza for her birthday dinner), raked leaves, winterized Mom’s house and had dinner with the family. It was glorious.
This last week was the general election so we drove up north to the election night party at the HQ. We were there until nearly midnight and then had to drive back home that same night. We got home after one a.m. . I had been up for nearly 24 hours. Being in my 40’s now, late nights and I do not get on as well as we once did.
Now that elections are over (thank goodness) I have one more big event this week on Friday which means this week will be insanely busy with preparations for that. It is a school fundraiser and I am one of the committee members. It’s been a lot of fun working on it. I truly have enjoyed my time with the other ladies on the committee. I will also be glad to get back to a normal schedule – and get my house back in order. I have a list of things I am behind on that I really need to catch up on. My business partner and I have a potential website design job coming up that we are excited about. Things are clicking into place which is nice!
I know I haven’t blogged much. I fight for the words to say most days. And then I remembered tonight that it’s not about having a predetermined subject to write about all the time. It’s just sitting down and writing – sharing what is going on. I’ve missed that.
