I love fall. I love spring. Winter is quite lovely, up until about February 15th. Then I'm done with that. Summer, while I tend to look forward to it, by the time the heat comes along I'm ready for the cooler air of autumn. I think what I really love is the change! New seasons bring new beauty to this wonderful country we live in and so I usually end up looking forward to it before it gets here.
At this moment, though, I am enjoying the full splendor of autumn in Eastern Canada. It is just beautiful. I always noticed the season change in Korea and thought it was nice, but really, even wonderful Korea has nothing on my home province in Canada. Every day as I drive to work and see the ever changing colors of trees and leaves against the blue sky and the sprawling Saint John River, I praise God for bringing us home, for opening my eyes to see the works of His hands and for allowing me the opportunity to enjoy the sights with safety each day. To be honest, I'm a bit of a distracted driver. Not distracted by my phone, but rather the scenes around me.
Here are some photos I took this foggy Saturday morning. Thankfully, I was not driving.
Since I posted anything. We have been busy. With work, for the most part. A few highlights from the last month or so:
1. My team in the towns Biggest Loser challenge won! Most of the win could be attributed to my stubborn sisters need to win, and her drive to be the best. If we all had had the will power and strength that she had, it would have been amazing. But, she couldn't have pulled it off without us as well, so we do believe it was a team win!
2 We had another family get together with my aunt and her family. Good food, good people and lots of fun with the kids. We even started planning our Christmas get together.
3. Hubby went back to work and was getting lots of hours. This week has been very slow, though, due to the wet weather and because of that none of the farmers have started digging their potatoes yet. Here's hoping for some sunshine the next couple of weeks so the harvest can get done.
4. Although I'm trying to hold off until after November 11th, I have found myself listening to some Christmas music lately. I just love, love, love Christmas, and cannot wait to get the music going, the decorating started and the shopping done. For now, though, I'll be happy with my little efforts at fall decor and at just in trying to make our apartment feel more like a home in general.
That's about all of our news. What's new with you?
A cute display...
Caramel went for a drive.
My sister and father swinging at the playground where we had our family gathering. I also did some swinging. I never knew what a good workout it is.
My new favorite dessert place. Menchies in Fredericton. I cannot wait to go back!
