It’s nice and cool out today. That means it hasn’t even broken 80, something that hasn’t happened since early spring. The air is filled with the heavy aroma of hay. My mind is full of thoughts of hay rides, apple cider, and pumpkin picking. It makes me homesick, since apple cider, hay rides, and pumpkins would all be an important part of the season.
Because of the weather, the kids and I are outside, soaking up the sunshine. All four of them are running around, taking in the fresh air. The sound of music is floating in from somewhere. Cows can be heard now and again. There’s the soft sounds of the wind in the trees. This is what fall should be like.
Earlier today we had some craft time. Corde made fairy antennae for her costume for faire. Beekee had Grumpy make him some horns. Sander had me mame his horns. Aunt Misti made a single little horn for Luca. We looked at wings we can borrow. Misting has two extra sets. Oz fixed his horns too. Now we’ll be sure to have wings for Corde and Beekee. I have no idea what we’ll all be wearing, but we’ll figure it out.
After crafting the kids all had lunch. They didn’t eat anything special, but they did have bubble tea. They loved that since it was new and different. It was an awesome treat! It was doubly nice since it went well with playing outside.
I think this has been a pretty good day. The kids seem to be having a lot of fun. This is really what life should be about!
