a blustery fall day

We have some serious wind going on here. I was up late last night, and the rain was just pouring down. I just love listening to the sound of rain. When we awoke this morning, we found a few potted plants tipped over in the backyard and the trees were dancing wild in the wind.

It isn’t nearly as cold as it looks out, but on windy days, I much prefer to be snuggled up in a warm blanket and knitting or reading. I love the winter, the cold, the rain….but I am not a fan of wind. Maybe part of it stems from my years of wearing contact lenses. I did all I could to avoid the wind in those days. All it took was a tiny piece of dust to get into my eye, and it felt like someone was stabbing my eye with a sharp pair of scissors. Not fun. Oh, I so don’t miss contacts. I am very content with my glasses.

River has been striving to teach me even more life lessons, I assume. It seems like the closer he gets to his third birthday, the more challenging parenting is day to day. He is amazing and brilliant and kind…..but there are days when I want to run away. That is a dramatic statement, and all I can add to that is that I know it is just passing, and each day, he changes and I change. Thankfully. 🙂

I hope to go get us out to a pumpkin patch in the next few days. I promise I will share pictures.
