October

I cannot believe it is the last week of October.  I have had my house decorated for fall for a few weeks now but have just gotten around to taking some pictures. porch3

It could be because we have been out of town twice this month, once to Denver and once to Omaha.

Or it could be because we are in sports heaven in this town with MANY late night playoff games and now late night World Series Games.  #GO ROYALS!

Or it could be the unexpected but WONDERFUL visit from our daughter, son-in-law and grandson this week.

No matter what has caused time to fly by, this has been a wonderful month of gorgeous weather, exciting baseball and cherished family time.

As much fun as it has been, it seems like I just move from one activity to another at light speed without a moments time to reflect.  As long as I can remember I have always been what I refer to as a “thinker,” someone who plans, dreams, ruminates and thinks through life’s situations.   In this vein, I am my father’s daughter.  My dad would get up at 5:00 am each morning, drink a pot of coffee and sit with the lights off just “thinking.”

Although I am not that desperate yet, I do need to find a way to carve out some quiet time into my days.

This past weekend Dave and I took a quiet walk around a lake near our home.  It was just what I needed. Here is hoping for a little quiet time in your life also.
