Sunday Snippet: The End of the Season Edition

I’m better. The muscle relaxers helped me get through a couple of days and now I’m off all the chemistry and just depending on good stretches and paying attention to how I’m sitting when I work. Hopefully, I won’t have to deal with that pain again.

It’s the weekend we close up the lake cottage, which is always bittersweet, but we are ready to stay at home in the city for the cold winter months. By about mid-March, we’ll be longing for the lake again. Funny how that happens, but I think that the cycle of lake life runs like that. Not hot and cold, but rather, our inner selves know when it’s time to open up and be part of the lake in the spring and when it’s time to close the cottage and stay at home.

The holiday are coming up and I’m so happy to know that we can have our usual Thanksgiving feast at my sister’s house with all the family gathered ’round. There will abundant food and a wine-tasting and pie and most of all, lots of love. Advent begins the Sunday after Thanksgiving this year, so church will be all gorgeous and decorated. We haven’t been back inside yet, but I think that we will return for Advent. New life–seems like a good time to release the fear and move ahead.

I don’t seem to have much to say today, but here’s a picture of this morning’s sky–all pastel pink with sunrise. Enjoy!

Stay well, stay safe, wear your mask, and most of all, mes amies, stay grateful,

    Happy to hear that the worst of the back pain is over. I’ve had a twinge of that myself this week. Lovely thoughts on the cycle of living and what a great catch of the colors in that sky! Take care packing up…
