Flowing Into Autumn
If you've read my blog in the past years, you know Autumn is my favorite season. My blog used to be called Autumn Sky Ranch and it may go back to that at some point. The best thing about Autumn so far this year is that we had rain in September! It's almost unheard of for us to spend time on a September day with the door and windows open, listening to the rain. It was wonderful.
The worst thing about the rain, if there is one? Muddy dog feet. We have two dogs and they love to go out on the property to hunt for ground squirrels, digging up the huge holes to find the invasive rodents. Dirt is a fact of life with inside/outside dogs, but we love them so much and find so much to smile about when we watch their joy.
Autumn also brings an opportunity to once again turn on the oven without concern about it heating up the house. Thoughts of pumpkin bread stir in my brain. Warm delicious soups sound like a perfect menu item. And while I'm having those thoughts, I can break out my sweats and feel cozy all day long.
You may remember that I loved photography and shared so many photos here. I am not as prolific as I once was as my iPhone camera is so much easier to use than a heavy DSLR. I still find joy in creating beautiful images but I admit I've gotten lazy about it. I rarely travel and having lived here for 20 years, the images are much the same and so the views don't inspire me as they once did.
Our cloudy skies are always worth capturing, as is the coast in Cambria. Maybe I'll venture out again now that the season is changing. I'm trying to figure out what this chapter of my life is going to be. Change is good, it just takes time to figure out what shape it's going to take.
Enjoy your day.
