“Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus
It's been one of those days... the kind that never seem to end. I didn't sleep well last night and woke to the start of a migraine. The morning started way too early and I quickly showered so I could tend to the children. I worked, came home to swap loads, picked the kids up, did Little Man's piano lesson, provided first aid to neighborhood kids, helped with homework, helped clean the guinea pigs cage, had dinner, broke up feuds, read books, more laundry, tucked kids, tidied the kitchen, gave Pokey medicine, had prayers, and then... I thought about my picture of the day. I'm sure it's an all too familiar tune for most of you moms out there. Haldan has been working until midnight, so when I got home he was already gone. Unless I consciously think about it the POTD is forgotten. Luckily I managed this one today. Life is getting busier and it's getting harder to remember. I'm 2/3 of the way in. I can't stop now.
I do so love this time of year though... It's by far my most favorite season. I remember when I lived in Washington and I would go on drives for the sole purpose of "finding fall". Of course I was always disappointed, as it's soggy and green year round. We have a maple tree in the woods next to us that is always first to turn. It's beautiful right now. So this photo is for those of you who don't get to enjoy Autumn as I do.
