This is that time of year when you just want to dance! Summer is gone but there is the thought of spring and all its wonders. I think we all have to settle down for a while in life and Autumn with Winter is the perfect realtionship between mother nature and ourselves. Everything must sleep and rest and this is the time.
This is also a good time of year to take advantage of cleaning out closets, washing up windows and canning. Yes I like canning. This year we made an abundance of items. Salsa, peppers, homegrown celery, squash, snow peas and of course green beans where put away.
I almost felt like I was a squirrel this year storing away! I even contimplating picking the little crab apples off the tree the other night and making jelly out of them because I had a few empty jars~
I also have the happiness of thought of waiting for April when my son and his fiancee get married. Things are moving along quite quickly and I have to commend Juliet for her fast pace on being able to accomplish something so hard as a wedding in such a short time. My daughter Emily is getting married in the fall as well but they have not picked a date, she may need some help.
With the thought of marriage of my children comes the hope that someday I may be a grandparent. I will be the typical grandmother I am afraid. As canning, cooking and cleaning seem to be my lot in life.
As of Sept 25th I am officially a Crone. I have passed the point of being concerned with how I look, what I say about people, and if I do get anything done or not. Let winter come, let the feast of Halloween pass and with the hope of Spring come love.
