The leaves are dropping, the temperatures are all over the place, and the days are getting shorter. Life has been going a mile a minute, but I've been doing my best to stay calm and take things as slowly as I can. Whenever life gets unpredictable, I cling to things I can predict. Things like dinner making and house cleaning. Those routines are stable and sure and I pretty much love them.
Eating: Mashed potatoes with everything, fruity pebbles, and I'm craving pumpkin all of a sudden now too. Don't worry though, I'm balancing it all out with salad.
Exploring: Life in a new church and poetry. Whenever we're at "The Queen's Cottage", we'll be going to one church and that place has been my favorite thing about this half-move thing we've got going on. I'm taking a poetry class again this fall and even though it's tough, I'm really enjoying the opportunity to steep myself in a type of writing that is really uncomfortable to me. (Just to clarify, I'm not writing poetry, just studying the work of other poets.)
Admiring: My brother. He graduated from police academy the Friday before last and it's been a real treat to watch him go through the process of achievement.
Collecting: Memories. I never know what fall will hold. This one held a half-move to a new city, teaching some online classes, joining my brother and sister as they take part in a different theatre, and a whirlwind trip to the south to surprise my brother for his graduation.
