gathering and winding

We have been gone for three out of the past four weekends. It feels like there's been so much happening, it's been difficult for me to take it all in, to know what it means. It's been a very chaotic and eventful summer. This weekend we just hung around and got caught up on things. I got a chance to gather and settle and plan, sinking into this season of autumn and getting back to our regulars. It feels nice. Gathering bits of Halloween costumes, and beets and squash, and stunning leaves on the sidewalks. Finding my place in these chilly but sunny days. Planning the fermentation projects and the knitting projects and the book piles and the bulbs to plant. Easing back into home. It feels so good.

Ah, I love that feeling you describe when you make friends with a season by 'sinking into it.' Well put. Enjoy that lovely coloured yarn and the cooler months ahead. Katie x
