We are doing this a day early, I realize, but I try not to post on Saturday’s Everyones, doing too much fun stuff to come here and read my blog anyway.
Anyone else feel like all of a sudden the holidays are right around the corner? No? Just me? I realize it’s only October, but then, my brain starts making to do lists and I just feel like I’m running out of time already. Why can’t fall last just a little longer?
Speaking of the new season; this year I made it a goal to reflect at the end of every season and tap back into my goals for the year (you can read Spring thoughts here and summer thoughts here). This time around I didn’t write a whole post about it, but in short; I feel like the summer pushed me along to make a lot of necessary changes. Since the summer started I have been settling into a new job with an ever changing schedule. I have begun (again) to get back into shape, even getting some hiking in. The house is definitely being settled into, though it seems like there is always more to do. This blog is growing into something I am really proud to be a part of, I just hope that I can keep it going like this.
I feel like we (Chuck & I) are on the cusp of some really big changes. I’m not too sure what they all are yet, but I feel it in our home, in the air, in all of our conversations. Our dreams and goals are coming to light, and we are finally starting to see paths to making them happen. Hazah for good feelings!
To get a little more specific, let’s talk about all the stuff that’s been happening in the month of September. There has been A LOT of canning over here, so many tomatoes, cucumbers, and sauerkraut went into jars recently, and I’ve learned so much about the process. I may just be in love with it. Chuck has had hunting on the mind lately and very little else so cleaning up the gear room, and prepping for that has been a big part of the goings on.
We made a trip to visit family and get some lake time in, which is always fun and relaxing. We had a number of family dinners, and not as much friend time as I would have liked, but in the summer everyone seems busy. Next month we are going to fix that.
We celebrated our one-year anniversary this year with a trip to the Adirondacks, some wine and some year old cake. I was not impressed with the year old cake. It was much better the day of. How did eating year-old cake become a tradition? It wasn’t my favorite. I’d rather have the wine any day.
