I just love it! This morning on our way to my Dr. appt* it was only 62 degrees. I'm dreaming of wearing jeans, cozy cardigan sweaters that will be discarded for a tee in the warm afternoon sun and shoes other than flip flops. Buying local sweet corn at farm stands and mums and pumpkins for the front door at my favorite family farm just down the road. Melting caramel for Dave's favorite treat, caramel apples, and making apple crisp. Trips to the apple orchard and pony rides for the girls are just around the corner, bon fires in the backyard and walks in the woods to watch the squirrels, pick up fallen colored leaves and listen to the crickets too.
I love these days when the sun is lower in the sky, and the trampoline is in the shade for the better part of the day. When I don't have to feel so bad that I still need to sew and hang curtains with blackout liner in the girls' room, because they are sleeping in until 6:30 now instead of 5am and by 8pm it's plenty dark in their room for bedtime. Ahhh....that makes life easier.
*So...I had to drink the glucola diabetes test again today for the 2nd time. Somehow when I went in for my regular appt last week, they didn't get me back to draw blood soon enough. I ended up in the waiting room for 45 minutes. Note to self - start wearing a watch (buy batteries first). I had no idea it had been that long as I was working on a really tough Sudoku puzzle. So I had to drink that awful sugary drink again this morning. This time I chose orange since the red stuff made me feel so sick last week. Why on earth would they put carbonation in the orange one? The red one doesn't have it, and I've been trying to stay away from carbonation because it just makes me feel yucky these days. Oh well...I am so glad it's over with, now I'm just hoping the results are perfectly normal which they were with the girls.
