October skies

Hello Everyone – have you all noticed how it seems like “overnight” that Autumn is in the air?  The trees are beginning to have a riot of color on those roads that hug the Lake Michigan coast – and in the rain this morning the smell of fall was in the air.  It was definately NOT a warm summer rain – but there was a dampness and chill in the air that belonged to fall.

 This means that it is almost time to get out the tights, socks, and cold weather things.  Almost – I am still being stubborn and wearing sandals!  Cold feet or not! 

Life continues to offer up surprises each day – and some of those surprises are quite pleasant.  Maybe it has to do with closed doors and open windows. 

There have been some sad occurances here in West Michigan – things that make one stop and review ones life.  And, much of this review has been good – very good indeed.  The everything old is new again kind of good.  In the past month I have spent much time thinking about where I am going – is this really the direction I want to be moving?  If I did nothing and moved along with status quo, would I be happy with that decision?  Well, the long and the short answer is no – I would so not be happy with where I am heading.  And, in the words of James Taylor from “Walking Man” …the leaves have come to turning and the goose has gone to fly.  And bridges are for burning, so don’t you let that yearning pass you by…

I have some changes coming – some very amazing, wonderful changes. 

 And, I have some knitting – stay posted for some pictures!

  1. Today I saw lots of leaves on the ground…plenty to rake. That means summer is definitely over for me. Plus, it’s October. What else could October be except fall? Looking forward to hearing about where your journey is taking you next.

  2. I’m excited to hear what your changes are! Fall is my favorite season. I love the cooler weather and the colors and the warmer clothes! And it’s great knitting weather! Guess what I’m making? The multidirectional scarf that I bought yarn for on our FIRST Threadbear trip! I’m lovin’ it!
