Yesterday as I was walking a nice breeze came up and a bunch of leaves started to fall. And I stopped walking and stood and looked up and watched the leaves swirl and dance and fall to the ground. It was very pretty and very peaceful and I didn't miss California in that instant.
We moved here at the end of December and there were no leaves and no cicadas and it was cold and grey. So this transition of summer to fall is something we have never experienced and I'm looking foward to it. I can honestly say that pulling out my jeans and my sweaters and putting on slippers in the morning and carrying that mug of hot tea or coffee around with me is something I enjoy.
And our calendar is full to overflowing now. Between kiddie birthday parties and weekend get togethers and music classes, dance classes, school and work I feel like I have little free time for sitting around and whining or complaining. We even ordered Halloween costumes and can't wait to put them on and prance around the house in preparation for the best kids holiday ever.
And I'm letting go and starting to go with the flow. I'm letting go of some of my rigidity and my inflexibility and my craziness. I'm accepting that I'm here right now and I am not going anywhere and that I need to make the most of this place where I am because that is how life is. And I'm always knitting and soon I will be done with the 2 year socks.
