This is what my sky looked like all weekend and it also reflected my mood. I can feel that change of the season coming on and its really affecting my spirit. The summer went so quickly and I don't believe I made the most of it. I know that there are still good times to be had and that I should live in the present making every moment count no matter what the season. I still can't help feeling a little sad. I believe it has more to do with working outside the home and not being able to spend as much time with my kids and at home as I would like. Unfortunately thats something that can't be changed for now so I must keep trying to make the time we do spend together as special as I can. As far a the change of season goes, I do love the fall and it looks like were going to have a good harvest of pupkins from the garden this year. Just thinking of the autumn colors lifts my spirits. My husband was out of town this past weekend so it was just me and kids. We didn't leave the house the whole time. I must admit to you that I am a real homebody. I love to be a home and when I have two days in a row that with no where to go I am in heaven. The kids, not so much. They are way more social than I am and are use to the constant business of school. So to keep them happy during my hide out weekend I have to come up with projects for them or else they'll either meld minds with the television or kill each other. Not just any project will do for the girls. Their relationship is still abit tricky right now being that they are so close in age and attitude. I happended apon this blog post Friday and knew it would be perfect. And they really enjoyed it. They loved making their own quilt and didn't fight or say "I'm bored" for at least thirty minutes. I'd call that a sucessful kid craft and time well spent together.
