This summer/fall has been different, eventful, and a major growing experience for yours truly. In the past 6 weeks I have gone back to work, gotten my training for my CNA certification, lived without internet (not really a big deal), and learned a lot about myself and my capabilities.
My little garden provide a lot of therapy, food, and education all summer long. Last week MK got it all cleared and buttoned up for the winter.
We have a little teddy bear helping with the wood for the furnace. Playing on the wood pile is a big part of making us warm in the coming months.
Cousins came together and spent a lot of time learning and growing. They have taught grandma the important lesson of letting it go and soaking in all the laughter.
Grandpa and Layn fed apples to the piglets. Grandma took in all the joy of watching those two together. Little boy laughter and endless questions have punctuated our days.
Campfires on chilly evenings provide time for prayer and slowing down. I love the thought of my prayers and the smoke rising together into heaven.
I am not good at selfies but this is me in a uniform once again. I love the time at work learning from the old people and helping them to be comfortable.
Some mornings you just have to throw a jacket on over your nightie and slip into you boots and take a long walk.
We are glad to have done this today too. Later on the sky opened up and it rained cats and dogs.
