So, I intend to get back to visiting with you regularly.
I've actually intended before but so many things have taken the spotlight.
Seasonal employment has come and gone. When added to the heat and humidity of summer, it zapped my desire to do anything more than really necessary and not even all of the necessary things.
I find myself headed into the holiday season with a serious backlog of household chores and an intense desire to sit on the porch rocker and watch the leaves turn their beautiful autumnal tones...
... and to pick up the pecans before the squirrels get to them...
... or to lunch with friends whom I have missed during all of this.
The knitting group at church goes on, and really merits a post of it's own. It's a small group ministry and it's become so very meaningful to me, and I believe, to others. We have taught beginners and brought together experienced knitters and crocheters of all ages to make items with our hands to bless others. And on the way, we've discovered the blessings that always abound when folks of like-spirits get together and share their lives regularly. You find yourself thinking of them on other days and other times, and praying for the concerns of their hearts and lives.
I love the cooler, crisp mornings, but kind of miss the longer daylight hours of summer.
I enjoy planning a holiday meal and look forward to a time when kith and kin draw near.
