I am not even sure how many months it has been since I have written anything.
I have missed my online journal and the truth is I kinda like this little space. So I am going to give it a go again. So much has happened since I last wrote.
Little things and a million in between things.
All these memories adding up to be just so much.
I mean seriously my son was married. I have a daughter in law.
I am a mother in law.
My second son graduated from high school and moved to Utah to work before he goes on a mission for our church to Panama City, Panama.
So I have 2 children not only out of our home but in 2 different states and I miss them so much. Most of the time my heart can't take it.
My daughter started high school and made the Varsity tennis team as a freshman. To say that I was happy for her is a ridiculous understatement. It's all Tom and I talked about for like a straight week. Ok, we are still talking about it.
My little Charles started the fourth grade. If I told you how sweet this child is you simply would not believe the stories.
He is simply pure joy.
How do we process all this? The changes in life?
I haven't a clue so I will write about it slowly and over time.
It's fitting for me that I am starting to write again and it's fall. Most things happen for me this time of year. Fall is my everything and all of it is my favorite.
It's raining outside and it hasn't rained in the East bay of San Fran since like last March or maybe May. My windows are open because it's not cold outside and the drizzling sound is heavenly. My pumpkin candle is putting out it's perfect autumn scent. I have a mug of tea sitting here in my birthday mug that my family gave me from Anthro.
I just finished peeling about 40 apples from my tree and my Tamara's for applesauce.
The house is so cozy that I can't believe I get to live here for at least one more day.
So here I have so many things to tell you but I am going to start with pictures of my home.
For me my little heaven on earth. We got new windows and OMG but I am going to save that story as well. If you happen to see their fabulousness in the pictures then so be it.
This story is
just my simple house dressed up for the season and showing off her perfect colors...
