Full day of pulling out the spent tomato, zucchini, and eggplant plants; cutting back the decorative grass and peonies; pulling up MORE violets from my garden and the sunflowers I let the chipmunk grow in it; and, sadly, removing the pool steps and covering it up for the winter.
I’m making a turkey dinner- not the “good” kind with homemade everything, but good enough for the beginning of October (and besides, a week from tomorrow is Canadian Thanksgiving, so…)
Fall is here, and although we’ll have some beautiful weather to come, it’s not here to stay for any length of time. I had a vision of snow on top of the pool cover. Not necessarily my favorite. There is GRATITUDE for ALL of it. It brings back memories of wonderful days of LIVING that we’ve had, friends and family that we spent them with, joy in the warmth of the sun and the cool of an air conditioner…
And, there is BLESSING in it what is to come, too. Restful days not spent thinking about having to go weed, or vacuum the pool, or mow the lawn. Relaxation in front of the fireplace with a hot drink (even if it is after having to shovel). Time to go within and continue diving into Who I Really Am with Spirit.
It’s been a tremendous year of growth for me and, although growth isn’t always easy or pretty, I am so happy that I am SO HAPPY for the first time in my life. Healing. Taking Risks. Setting Goals.
For Today, That Is MORE Than Enough.
