Fall has a smell to it. This sweet smell of leaves. It’s almost indescribable. I noticed it when I left my work on my lunch break. It’s warm and humid, and the leaves coming off the maple tree are giving off that scent. I kind of love it. It makes me want to be outside and pick apples and visit farmers markets. I’m thinking the annual orchard trip will be very soon.
Fall has always signified major changes in my life. New schools, new homes, new relationships or the end of them. This year especially. On years where there aren’t changes, I feel strange, like there should be. This year…plenty of changes. I’m completely good with it. It feels right.
1. Another early morning yoga, meditation and breakfast. It was SOOOO HARD to get out of bed today. But I did it, and I’m very pleased I got to start my day the way I did.
2. The bathroom light has been fixed. It decided to not work last night. There was also a moment of panic when I wasn’t sure if the candle I’d lit to shower by had been blown out. Visions of the cat lighting himself on fire, and running batshit crazy through the apartment setting fire to everything flew through my head. However, maintenance confirmed I did not leave it burning. And I have a working light. All positives.
3. Taco Tuesday baby!
4. I signed up for classes today. Pilates+yoga power workout for 6 weeks, and then a homeowners class on plumbing as well as one on basic electrical. I’ve wanted to do all three of these for AGES. Also, the incident with the light brought it to my mind. Useful things to know. I like the idea of fixing my own stuff.
5. Dance night for A. ❤ Also an early bed for both kids. I’m not sure what to do with myself!
Jack White, Blunderbuss album on the playlist today. Completely fits my mood.
