October bliss

Since my last post somehow September slipped on by.  The best news of the month, DH interviewed for and started a new job.   It was a long five months for him without work.  The hours are pretty good and it's not too far away (10 minutes by car).  We seem to be back in the work groove again. Darn that alarm clock!

September seemed to be my time to dwell, stuck in thoughts of things that I cannot change and questions that will never be answered.  And finally I came to realize that by being 'stuck' I'm giving up time and energy ...and there is so much more I can and should be doing for my family, myself and friends.

I really do appreciate the comments left on my blog.  I'm catching up to acknowledge everyone, sorry for my tardiness.

The Halloween mailart is done and mailed out last week.  As soon as I know it's been received I'll post a picture. I'm working on projects for another exchange.  A couple of crochet projects underway. I've started knitting myself a fall wrap.  Cross stitch ornaments are being worked on as well.

As for Sully, he is growing.  Every day to him is a new one and as much as there is routine he does change up things.  This morning from 6 am it's been' I'm awake so what should we do?'  Most mornings as it's been cooler he likes to burrow in under his blankets and nap.  And that's usually when I can get some work done.  Ha, not so much this morning.  He is a delight and we all seem to be surviving puppy days (and nights).

The early morning sky was quite dramatic with clouds ranging from bright white to very grey/black.  It's now gone dark and looks like rain is coming.   Definitely fall.  After dropping DH to work I did manage a quick stop off to take a couple of pictures of trees in full fall reds and oranges.  I only had my phone with me but it was still better than no picture.

Having just said how dark it was now the sky has brightened up and the sun is peaking through. There is no explaining the weather.

Have a good one!

My FAVORITE time of year! Wish I could enjoy your changing colors; we don't have much of that here, but I am enjoying the slightly cooler temperatures and lower humidity nonetheless. :)

Your realization is an important one (said by someone who tends to dwell in those mental spaces). Glad you have a puppy distraction!

I think we've all encountered these stressful times at one point or another in our lives. Sometimes it's hard to drag ourselves back up and into a better frame of mind. I'm so happy for you both that your husband has found work again, such a relief I'm sure! I've been feeling blue the last few months with various issues. Nothing seems to last for long, but little nagging worries have been hovering around me for too long. Our Thanksgiving weekend will help lift my spirits when my daughter comes home for a visit though :) Take care Debbie and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
