Orange and other Random Things

September 18, 2010

I kept opening this post as a draft this week and having 10 seconds to add a thought before I forgot, then running off to something else more pressing. Preschool. Work. More work. Laundry.  Time outside in this fantastic weather. Getting pumpkins. Visiting our new library. Meeting a potential new babysitter who is so fantastic and exactly what we’ve been needing. Listening to the growing relationship between my little ones as Mia teaches him things and he follow anything at all that she offers and the way they can make each other break into giggles over almost anything. Dealing with Nick’s newly found tantrums and head-banging-on-the-floor means of expressing his emotions/anger/frustration/upset.  Getting pictures printed for a 3 year old to make into a family collage to bring to school for Treasure Day. (Does anyone want to enlighten me as to why you’d assign a 3-year-old with homework like that ever, let alone the first week of school instead of just asking everyone to bring in a picture of their family for Treasure Day? Just curious.) Visiting the doctor to make sure that my sore throat and headaches and exhaustion weren’t strep. They weren’t – thankfully – but whateveritwas didn’t help our first official transition week of me working more to go any more smoothly, that’s for sure. It did allow me a few extra justified naps – that was nice. Time with Nick while Mia was at school. Trips to market.

And, just like that, our week was over. And I hadn’t blogged once {except to actually do my 365 Days of Life project!}. As I looked back through the pictures, the colors so clearly indicate the official season shift. So much orange, with bits of yellow and green and purple thrown in.

Have I mentioned that I completely adore fall?

    Those purple peas are fantastic! And the photos, per usual, are gorgeous.

    Lillian~your photography is infectious! I love coming here to see what you’ve captured through the lens. I also love how well your pictures tell the story of your life. Even if there were no words, I’d get it. Love that. But I love the words too. Sounds like our last week was very similar. Hope you’re feeling better. By the way, I meant to tell you that I love what you’re doing with your kitchen.

    LOVE your purple peas! I’ve done purple beans, but I have to find purple peas now! Unfortunately, if they’re anything like my beans, they might turn green while cooking

Leave some love! (It always makes my day:)
