Living Seasonally:

Fall you beautiful you. Finally you have graced us but you could have been a bit more obvious about it instead of acting like Winter…then Summer…then Winter. I forgive you. Today the sun is shining, it’s cool and all I hear is wind and leaves crisp and falling. You remembered what you’re to be up to, thank you.

This is one of the seasons of life that start to get busy and you know it’s only going to get busier. I use a lot of my time making lists and planning ahead for what is to come. I wish I could do more of this but I’m not one to be accused of being overly organized. Alas, my brain is getting foggier with baby on board.

But with all the busy and the busy to come I still try to keep myself mindful to enjoy this particular season for what it is right now.

Summer seems like it would the season to kick back and relax a little. It’s not. The schedule fills up, Phil is still busy as ever and the days fly by. But at least there’s ice cream and watermelon and iced tea on the porch.

Living Seasonally

You can ask my Mama if you don’t believe me, but for years I did not very much care for seasons like Spring or Easter. I’m not really sure why, they just weren’t the ones I looked forward to. But I can say now having lived where there is a true season of Winter, the coming of Spring is a welcomed gift. I’m always ready for Spring once it arrives and I have Winter to thank for that.

I do enjoy the Winter while it’s here. Well, some of it not the dangerous horrible parts of it, like driving on ice or getting a chill down to your bones.

It’s a particular delight of mine, seeing my babies reading. And when I see one baby reading to another baby my heart is fit to burst. I don’t know if there’s really a way to “make kids readers” and I don’t know if they will always like reading but I’m so thankful that for now this is one way they all enjoy spending their time alone, with one another and with Mama.
