Sitting…on the couch in the living room.
Eating…crackers and cheese, my bedtime snack.
Wondering…where the day went. Actually, I know where it went. I took care of little Natalie today while her mother worked, and relearned how busy toddlers are and how much attention they require. And after supper, baby Amelia and her family came over for a visit. So there you have it; that’s where my day went.
Planning…to make blueberry-raspberry jam tomorrow. You know how all the raspberry jam recipes say to sieve the berries to remove half the seeds? I always mix raspberries with another fruit when I’m making jam and figure that if my jam is only half raspberry, it’s pretty much the same as taking out half the seeds—and a whole lot easier.
Plugging…shamelessly, the new blog Out of the Ordinary. There should be new posts up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from now on out. So check in often, or better yet, put it on your feed reader.
Letting…go, a little reluctantly, of summer’s long daylight and warmer temps, and
Enjoying…the colors of fall, especially the yellow leaves covering the front yard.
Also enjoying…fall’s frequent northern light displays on clear nights. Sunday night, my son woke me at 1am to see them. I was annoyed, at first, but it was the best show I’ve seen in years—a wide swath of dancing green and violet across the middle of the sky—and altogether worth the interrupted sleep.
Anticipating...the garden’s end. Sometime before the beginning of October I’ll have everything in and it’ll all be over for this year. Between now and then, I have lots of work to do.
Yawning…because it’s time to say goodnight.
Wishing…you sweet dreams and a joyful September.
