It is cold in the mornings.
Thom says it reminds him of racing to catch the country school bus. If he hurried, he could get in 15 minutes of soccer before the bell rang.

September is easeful. Little people we know are starting preschool, with their backpacks banging against the backs of their knees. Distances shrink this time of year. our radiuses narrow. everyone starts staying closer to home.

  12. Hi. I'm Lea, I love your blog. Your pictures are lovely and words are inspiring :)

    I have a blog of my own, that only a few friends & family read. But was wondering if I could share about your blog on mine & how much I like it. using a link to your blog and a picture.

    If not that is understandable, and I will still love your blog and continue to visit it :)

  13. autumn feelings by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    flourish greener, as ye clamber,
    Oh ye leaves, to seek my chamber,

    Up the trellis'd vine on high!
    May ye swell, twin-berries tender,
    Juicier far,--and with more splendour

    Ripen, and more speedily!
    O'er ye broods the sun at even
    As he sinks to rest, and heaven

    Softly breathes into your ear
    All its fertilising fullness,
    While the moon's refreshing coolness,

    Magic-laden, hovers near;
    And, alas! ye're watered ever

    By a stream of tears that rill
    From mine eyes--tears ceasing never,

    Tears of love that nought can still!

  16. It occurred to me the other day, when I re-read one of your beautiful posts that you baby had already come. I felt a little silly, when I thought about what I wrote as a comment back then. Well, all I wanted to say now is - CONGRATULATIONS! It is so beautiful to follow this little family of three. I know we are just strangers, but I hope you don not mind.
