First, thank you for all the generous words about my fall quilt--it has rarely slept alone these last weeks, so I think the general consensus around here is that it's a success!
I blinked, and now it's Saturday. The days are flying by here, in a nice sort of way, but I'd really like them to slow down now that it's October, my most-favorite of months. This morning we started our soccer season, which went well despite staying up late with friends until midnight last night, children included. We hosted a sweet family with homemade pizza by candlelight on the deck, and the children played until very late with glowsticks in the pasture. So this morning came early, but my early birds were still up before sunrise, ready to go! I think naptime will also come early today.
But weekends are good for that, and for dozing with the sound of football in the background, and playing around in the sewing room, maybe adding something to the shop, and taking long runs, and enjoying church. They're good for putting the schoolwork aside, and taking naps, and lying in the hammock with good books. With all this beautiful weather outside, I think I'll tackle the garden again, once we get rid of our usually-complacent-but-suddenly-aggressive rooster. Those roosters keep me from a lot of good gardening! That and the grasshoppers. I'm not sure which I dread more.
So that's what we're doing this weekend, a little of this and a little of that, and not much else. That's what weekends are good for!
