That Golden Autumn Light

 












The months, they fly by! This is hardly a unique statement but I feel like I need to say it anyway. The week before "school" started we stayed at a cabin near Shenandoah National Park for a week. My little hikers were good sports but after the 4th hike they were getting tired of it; there is not much else to do these days. The cabin had a hot tub which was a fun activity for them, despite the fact that it was 95 degrees out, hotter even than the water in the tub. 

Now that it's October the garden is pretty much done, and true to form I'm tired of it. After 6 months of gardening I'm usually ready to finish it up and move on to something else. I'll try to squeeze in as many art, craft, and house projects as I can before it starts getting truly cold and I commence hibernation.

My work announced that we will continue teleworking until July 1 of next year. That will mark 15 months of working from home, when we originally left the office thinking we'd be back in 2 weeks. I haven't been back since and I'm sure the mice are having a field day with the food I left in my desk. (Mice, on the 6th floor of an office building? True story.) A coworker managed to rescue my plants so at least I'm not worried about them shriveling up.

Everything continues to be the same every day so I am not sure what else to say. Mary started 1st grade online and we look at our screens all day, and are basically all trapped inside in the same room trying not to develop cabin fever.
