I love the transition from spring to fall. I’ve had the windows open the last couple of days and the whole house just feels so fresh! The air is getting cooler and soon the trees will start changing. Then it is time for pumpkins and hay bales, apple cider and orange leaves and all those wonderful fall smells and feelings. Mmmmm….sounds cozy!

I’ve been going through closets, when Snuggle Bug isn’t bringing me a story to read, and getting rid of the clutter. I love the feel of a clean organized house. It makes me feel calmer like everything is in its place. Its something I learned from my mother.

I think I feel this motivation to get us ready for our move and just to get the house ready for the hubby coming home. I want to make sure everything is clean, organized and ready for him. Truth be told, the house could be a complete pigsty and he probably wouldn’t notice because he is just ready to be with his family again.

(Breaking to read the Dr. Seuss’s ABC book that Snuggle Bug has thrust into my hands.)

She loves to read and I swear we don’t go more than an hour without her bringing me a book to read. I love that she prefers a good book over a television show. It reminds me of when I was a child. A trip to the library was so exciting for my brother and I. We would run to the children’s section and just scan through all these wonderful books, looking for just the right story. Then we’d take our books home and lose ourselves in stories of Amelia Bedelia, Babar, Charlotte’s Web….oh the memories. The hubby is already talking about buying a copy of ‘Matilda’ to read to her when he gets home. We both want her to continue on with her love of reading. Speaking of, she is beckoning mommy to read her another book so that is my queue to get off the computer for a little while and get back to my reading and cleaning.

  1. I remember going to the library as a kid too. I loved it there and it was one of my favorite places to go!
