I always think I'm going to hate the change from summer to fall, summer being my favorite season. The shorter days. The cooler days. Everything drying out & dying... But honestly, I think I'm usually ready for the change when it does finally arrive. Nia wore mittens on our walk this morning and that little detail really delighted me.
I'm looking forward to the shift to more indoor activities. Art, card games, finger puppet plays, cooking projects, lots of reading (aloud and silently), sewing... At the end of summer, squirrels gather nuts. Apparently, I gather activity books...
Seriously, though. I'm especially excited about What Shall We Do Today? and this bird feeder project:
A seed filled pumpkin. How awesome, and totally beautiful, will that be outside our window? (We'll have to hang it in a spot where the aforementioned squirrels, aka sunflower thieves, can't raid it.... hmmmm.)
And just so you all don't think I'm in crafty mom-mode all the time, I'm also looking forward to kicking off the new, longer nights with some serious vegging out with my hubby.
