getting ready

Yes, we are getting ready for the cooler days, that move us in a little more.

Our summers are spent outside from breakfast to dinner and after that too.  Sometimes even before breakfast (which are not very early) we are outside cleaning, getting the clothes, or picking apples.  And of course, after dinner there is still time for playing, catching up with friends, running around, starting a fire and watching movies.  Oh summer, how much fun it is.

But I do need to say that fall is my favorite time of the year.  So colorful, in a different way than spring is with all its flowers starting to bloom.  Autumn is the time we start anew.  A new school year for all of us.  New dreams, new goals, new classes, new skills, new plans, new books, new students (for Mark), new lots of things.  And it feels like a great beginning in our lives.

And so does our home.

With new beginnings we also need to start fresh around the house.  Clean shelves, taking out games and books we no longer need.  Leaving space for the new that is to start.

And because the colder days are coming our way, we need to ready our home, our spaces for spending more time indoors.  And I love the feeling of this tradition of sorts, the deep cleaning and purging of things we no longer need.

It feels good.

      Thank you Stephinie. I try to do both cleaning. Spring and Fall, but this time is more about cleaning inside, readying for the days coming spent indoors.
      Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a good start of your week.
