Time for taking care of outdoor chores with colder temperatures on the way. The warmer weather has been nice this month, and the annuals and garden plants have grown longer than usual. There are still green tomatoes to pick and bring indoors until they ripen up. And the eggplant has been flowering again! There’s even a little eggplant growing… wonder if I dug it up, if it would grow indoors?
The fall season seems so busy with conflicting goals and desires… getting outdoors, family time, holidays, school, sports, cub scouts, homework, hobbies and more. But I love it… and it gives us the chance to be involved and to embrace life. And not to forget that even among the confusion and frustrations, it’s all part of living. “Life happens while you’re busy making other plans…” Remember who said that? It reminds me to live in the present too.
