This time is golden, bright and sweet. The weather is perfect, exactly the way I like it, with mild days and chilly nights. The whole world is lighting up with the colors of autumn. My children are in another sweet spot, one of those brief moments in time where they are calm, peaceful, playful, easy. I feel good. There is good all around and I'm doing the best I can to hold on, to capture each and every moment in my mind and heart.
We're enjoying all the things that autumn has to offer. We're cooking more (the Bear made butternut squash soup in the pressure cooker, which I'm too scared to use, and it was so delicious). I've been crocheting a lot, and cutting up fabric with no real plan in mind but immensely enjoying the cutting. The cozy times at home are back, and you know how much I adore being cozy. The Balloon Fiesta is on right now and that's always a thrill. The small Bears saw a zebra-shaped balloon, belonging to their classmate's family, land in the dirt lot next to their school. It was a planned landing and the whole school was there to greet Mr. Z, the balloon, and his balloonist, Mr. W.
Now we're on fall break and we're so relieved to take a well-earned break. We had another ballooning adventure this morning! We watched one land in a city park and some of us got to help pack it up. I'll tell you more about that soon. We have a quiet weekend planned for ourselves - workshop work, housework, yard work...but not schoolwork!
