I love Fall.
I love Fall in Michigan.
I'm treasuring this once every 4-5 years experience...
...and this week has been the color red.
I've been freezing and canning... canning and freezing... and enjoying every second of it.
It isn't like I didn't freeze and can food back in Africa. I did. But it was a little more complicated - the Petit Marché was never quite as easy or peaceful to navigate our local Farmer's Market... and the work there involved a lot more sweat, of coure! I've actually got my turtleneck sweater on 'cause it is a chilly "early" fall morning in these parts today - but haven't yet given up on my flip flops! There's another little detail to mention: There may have been one, but I can't recall the last time I did this sort of work without little hands
hindering helping. I'm enjoying it.
So yes, red has been a great way to occupy my mind as littlest of the Wrightling littles has started school this week. She's loving it... I'm delighting in the quiet time to work... and then we have a ball each afternoon home together, even if she chooses to spend most of her time playing with her cousin. It certainly doesn't stay quiet around the place once those two join me!
