Good bye white pants (it is after labor day, ya know!) … hello cozy knits! After the coolness of this weekend, I certainly feel that autumn is here, fully. On instagram, I saw lots of people south of us “embracing” the last bits of summer in their friends pools, at the ocean, at the lake, or just bbq-ing in their backyard. Meanwhile, it’s been chilly, rainy and cozy-up kind of weather feelings up here. I’ll still be hanging onto the hope for that indian summer to present itself (as it normally does)!
This week, Matt and I have labelled “closing of commitments” week, whereas last week was our “finishing off projects” week. After Sunday, I don’t have anything pressing on the calendar, minus our daily rhythm things, except welcoming this babe into our arms. I am sooooo looking forward to the slower pace and the “embracing” of all that fall has to bring. Besides our commitments, here are some other things we hope to do …
. finishing painting my living room wall (yay!)
. getting back into the rhythm of our preschool mornings. a friend and her boys are joining us this fall!
. meeting with some new accountants – need to find a new one asap.
. having a home day on thursday. thinking we’ll probably bake something … apple pie anyone?!
. last week we canned some crab apple juice with Matt’s mom … she picked up some pears so we will be canning those this week.
. we ordered some fresh atlantic lobster in from PEI for our life group peeps on friday night – can. not. wait.
. living with this mentality this week. lately, i’ve been caught up in projects and these lil adventurers of mine need to get out and wander.
