Sometimes I need to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the richness of it all.
In the past week the fall colors have really started to pop. We are enjoying our beautiful surroundings. Some recent heavy rains has also saturated our creek so it is full and flowing.
We have had warm and humid temperatures so our garden is producing a bountiful fall harvest! We have tomatoes and grapes that I have been canning and preserving. It is also apple season. We have some apples growing on a few trees in our yard, but we were recently gifted a two paper grocery bags full that we will be putting to good use.
Today I am also recovering from a 13.1 mile half marathon race. Friday our 14 year old and 12 year old participated in a 5K fun run and yesterday our youngest two ran their last 1.2 miles of a kids marathon. I ran the half marathon and also helped organize and run a bake sale fundraiser alongside all of the race festivities.
Fun, busy, rich and full.
