Yesteray the mr and I took a couple littles( and one not so little) to the farm for a tracker ride and pumpkin picking! It was fantastic. The sun was out, but it was still fall chilly. The pumpkins were amazing and we were the first one there so we had an the first pick of the lot! But before we went to the pumpkin patch, we went to the raspberry patch for some breakfast raspberries and the littles stumbled upon a super friendly, lovey black cat. Needless to say, they picked no raspberries and just ended up playing with the cat. I asked one of the farmers if they knew the cat and she told us it's kind of the farms cat and her name is…wait for it…. Super Friendly.. Best name ever.
This week also included a birthday party, a solar eclipse (did you see it?) a little drive to check our some tree colors (wasn't much at the time, but this week will be good) and some more apple picking (I can't stop!). We also took one of the last trips to the garden to harvest some greens and got crushed. I have been babying a bed of rainbow chard all summer and was so excited to do one big-ass harvest. But when we got there, all the leaves have been eaten off. A Fuckface deer ate my chard! I was so mad and am still a little pissy about it, but what can I do? And really, If I was a deer , tI would have muched the shit out of that chard too.
Also, it seems that everyday I am digging/riffling through the basement for just one more long sleeve shirt, pair of wool socks, or a warmer pair of mittens. I have't pulled out the jacket yet, but I think that it's going to happen soon. I mean, wearing 2 long sleeve shirts and 2 sweaters is getting kind of annoying when I leave the house to walk the dog, So yeah, might do that today.
But this weather… SO GOOD right! Blankets, sweaters, tea and coffee, knitting and reading. If I could live in a fall state for my entire life. Oh man that would be great.
Anyways, enough about me, how about you? Are you enjoying the weather where you are? Are you getting out and doing all the fall things that one does? Are you at least getting in some r and r toady? I hope so. cause we all deserve it!
