We're still here! Well I should say we're back and have been from our little vacation. Long and short of it was that it was great fun while being very low key - lots of lying around reading books and watching H. line up his trains for hours! Seeing him amuse himself with one little basket of toys all weekend made me want to purge my house complete and give myself a pat on the back for having a toddler that can amuse himself.
But we came back and Fall was standing at the doorway - there are weddings to attend, food to process, things to make and winter to get ready for! My housekeeping is lagging behind badly as I just want to get out and enjoy every minute of the perfect weather we've been having. I would be happy if it never got above 82 degrees for the rest of my life.
I'm counting my blessing right now - we've been getting regular rain since the beginning of August so our CSA is thinking he'll give us and extra week or two of food and already we're freezing, drying and storing about half of our box each week because it's too much for us to go through! And a great coworker gave me no fewer than 4 boxes of clothes and two bags of shoes that her boys had out grown. Even after sorting through it all and only keeping half of it I probably wont' need to think about buying the kiddo a piece of clothing until next fall! Plus she's promised more as her boys keeping growing seeing as she has a great desire to reclaim her basement from storage boxes.
Needless to say that Generosity and Community are among my favorite words right now.
I'll be back in a few days I'm sure as I finish getting things under control here! Hope your Septembers are starting off well!
