Hello there. It's a beautiful morning here in western Missouri. Cool and crisp. Fall is definitely on its way. Fidget and I sing "Oh! What a Beautiful Morning" most days on the way to preschool, and today it was a perfect fit for our drive. The cloudless sky is a gorgeous deep blue and the morning sun made the cornfields glow.
We drove down her favorite 'Tree Tunnel' road and saw that one of the two horses was out. The chestnut one. He was standing alone in a large field, surrounded by wildflowers and grass that is still green, coat shining. We drove by, waving, looking for his sidekick, the gray mare, but we didn't see her today. 'Gray horse in the barn, mommy. It's too early.'
October is usually the blue-ribbon month around these parts, but September is making a case for itself this year. I keep thinking the heat and humidity will come back, overnight, with a vengeance. But so far we've been lucky and sleeping with the windows open, waking up to a chilly house and coffee brewing. It's my favorite part of the year.
I made some progress on Fidget's quilt this weekend. It's turning into a modified log cabin design, with embroidered pieces in the middle of the squares. She is very keen on my finishing her 'special blanket' soon. It doesn't matter what I'm working on. She will ask, "Mommy, is that my special blanket you are making for me?"
Yes, little Fidgie, it is.
