I missed harvest. It made me cry a little, but I was happy to be able to go out and gather the winter squash and I even found a couple of eggplants and some peppers. We have a lot more cleaning to ready the garden for winter, but we got a good start on it today.
I missed all of the pears as well, but there are a few apples left. These little tiny apples taste wonderful, and thier size is just right for a quick bite or two.
I mostly have been trying to spend my time with the horses, cleaning them up and riding. Being away from them for almost 3 months has made me realize what a horse gal I am. It is interesting how I am so much more decisive about what I like and don't like. I am beginning to realize how fleeting life is and how important it is to enjoy today the best that you can. Even if that means pausing a time or two for a big cry.
I need a few more big cries before we head south, as I realize that I have been repressing emotions for a while now. As I am an emotional girl, my vessel is plumb full needs to drain. The horses and the plants don't seem to mind.
