Jasper just announced, “It’s starting to get beautiful outside!”, at the creamy pastel sky, just beginning to lighten up. Of course, we have been up for a while, reading books in the darkness of the November morning. And though we are clearly in the thick of Autumn, the weather has hardly prevented us from any outdoor activity as of yet. Our wood stove has hardly even gotten a proper workout.
But our days are not limited to outdoor excursions, though truth be told, they are surely much more calming and cohesive than the indoor stints. But, we still love our bouts of wild, chaotic, messy crafting, and tiny car lining up, and scissor snipping things we are not supposed to, and bird doodling, and oh so much reading. Miles is nose deep into his third Harry Potter, which I am not entirely sure how I feel about honestly! I believe I am putting a pause button on that one for a time. As for me I have been reading, Salvage the Bones and Behold the Dreamers. I do recommend both!
I am feeling the switch to the cozy indoors. I am relishing in the not quite needing to bundle up entirely section of the year. And I am dreaming up all kinds of crafts I surely won’t have time to do this season. And that is just fine.
