Around the House: October

Darkness falls earlier while temperatures fall lower. The air is filled with sounds of tractors humming and smells of earth turned over. A few brave leaves sever their ties and waft to the ground. The farmers market is ablaze in deep greens and oranges. Autumn is upon us.

In these early days of the new season, I am:

Reading more books.

Using the tea kettle more frequently.

Savoring my girl's final year of high school.

Celebrating her birthday.

Cleaning out cabinets and closets.

Enjoying clean spaces.

Anticipating bonfires.

Thanking God for the gift of this quiet life.
