Fall is not falling


What? Seriously? I am trying to take a nap here. Get the camera out of my face crazy lady!
The leaves are turning colors and fall is here, but the temperature is unseasonably warm so I am having a hard time "feeling" fall. When you get in your car and it says it's 90 degrees and it's October?!?! Messed. Up. I actually thought about wearing short pants (Capri's? Are they Capri if they are denim? So NOT a fashionista....) today since it was supposed to be warm. Just weird.

This strange weather is kind of putting me in a knitting funk. I feel "in between" and not motivated. My wips are mighty - but my completed project list has slowed considerably. I think my flirtation with the sewing machine and my increased work-out schedule is coming into play here too. I know I will get my knitting mojo back in full force soon. Patience and all that.

In one of my moments of thought today I was thinking about how wonderful it is to have people in my life who step up. Be it at work or family or just a neighbor who shows a kindness to me. When someone shows a thought outside of their own world it really makes me pause and be grateful. I think a lot of the anger I have in my soul comes from people who I felt should have "stepped up" and didn't. I am trying to mend my soul and my heart and I think part of that process is trying to understand why I get hurt by people and how I can stop the cycle. My defence tends toward isolation - but that isn't really good for anyone. So how do I get around this? I think more people would step up for me if I allowed them to - and perhaps asked them to. I keep forgetting that I have power and that I don't have to accept what morsels that are thrown at me. I can go out and get a piece of my own cake. Theory is lovely - but how to apply this to my life? More thinking to do it seems.

What a cutie! Here in Iowa our weather is warmer than usual but I really love it. I am glad summer is over as it was way too hot. We will both be wearing coats before to long!

@Connie It's been freakishly warm here too. We are breaking record after record for heat. I know it's days are numbered though. I just bought a new winter coat and it won't be long before I am wearing it every day!
