Fall tomatoes ripening in the garden (hurry, hurry)
Knitting and spinning while the children work.
Wool drying in the sunniest window in our home (for the boy who wants mittens as white as snow).
Enjoying a bit of Shakespeare before breakfast (ht Charlotte). This was less about their interest in Shakespeare and more about their interest in seeing Professor Lockhart in a different roll. In any case, they were mesmerized and watched it twice.
And so much more - the costumes are made (more or less), I'm listening to Vince Guaraldi on ITunes, and trying to cobble together our sometimes annual family pumpkin carving party. Meaning I do it when I want to and I wasn't sure I wanted to until Monday morning.
I said on the first day of this month that it would be extraordinary. It was.
