“Don’t let go too soon, but don’t hang on too long.”
~ Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie
I spent a good part of yesterday in the kitchen restocking the pantry by canning vegetable stock, chicken stock, black and kidney beans. It was a long and lovely day.
I feel ready to embrace autumn. Remember hygge, that cozy lifestyle that was suddenly all the rage last winter? I’m ready for some. Maybe even a pumpkin spice latte just to kick the season off.
Not so much ready for the ‘S’ word I heard on the weather yesterday in reference to some local hills and highways, but we’ll just ignore that for now.
Today on what looks like it will be a sunshiny day, and one on which our usual Tuesday plans are on hold, I think a walk in the park with my hubby, who is doing his best to listen to his body and take it slow, will be just the thing.
Meanwhile, here’s a look back at the spring lilacs. Letting go of spring and summer, reaching with expectation and joy toward fall and, yes, even winter.
