Good Wednesday morning! This is a picture from last night as we took our last boat ride of the season. It was so beautiful, if a bit chilly, on a September evening on the lake. The cool air, the quiet lake, and the early darkness confirmed that summer has finally relinquished herself to fall.
Today, we are loading up and heading to the ocean! Our house is about fifteen minutes from the beach, on a quiet little road on the bay. And, as the lovely woman who built and owned the house told us, "It is a Pennsylvania house!" Strangely enough, she and her husband are from our hometown!!! We had just found out when we bought the house! No wonder I felt at home the minute I walked in the door! We will stay at the condo for a few days until the beds are made up, and the kitchen is put together. My first task? Decorating for fall and Halloween! Stay tuned. : )
This day begins a new chapter in our family's life. Our lives are less structured now, and I have always thrived on structure and routine. As I have gotten older, however, I realize that I can enjoy each day as it comes, regardless of whether or not I know exactly what tomorrow brings. I can enjoy a September afternoon without wishing it was Halloween. When Christmas comes, I will be ready. And if I'm not, I will enjoy it just as much. If I leave today to stay at the beach, and I am not sure exactly what day I will return, I am good. ( Sometime in early November. ) This is a gift that comes with age. And I am most thankful for it.
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday, my friends. Thank you for visiting! I will see you on Friday!
