You know how I know it's basically fall? I see the fuzzy caterpillars on the move again. Goldenrod and sunflowers are in their prime. The sedum has turned a beautiful shade of pink. The grasses have started turning golds and bronzes, while the occasional maple is starting it's spectacular show. The air is cooler in the morning. And most of all, I feel slightly melancholy. I always do this time of year. I guess it's because fall is ushering in the close of the growing season, bringing with it all the new things that go with new school years. I suppose it's heightened this year because we are moving November 1st to Fort Hood, TX. It will be the first time, since Phil and I have been married, that my family isn't close by. It will be the first move, that we won't have any family closer then 500 miles away. It could have been worse, but it could have been better. I'm sure once we are all settled in there will be many positives we can think of, but for now there is only 4 I can think of. 1. we'll be a real family again, all under the same roof 2. we'll be within 5 hours of the beach (BP made have ruined this option) 3. winter will be warmer 4. I can grow some more exotic plants.
It shall be an interesting journey. Keep us in your thoughts, prayers, and hearts as we go on this new journey.
