This weekend we had no shortage of things to do — from dental appointments to birthday parties to trick or treating, to fighting back colds, it was very hectic for us. Thankfully though, we were able to take a little time on Sunday morning to visit our beloved Horicon Marsh. We are past the peak for autumn color, but this may be my favourite time of year. Maybe it’s because this is the time of year my daughter was born & I hold it close to my hear. Maybe I just like being on the cusp of winter. Whatever the case, I found our hike to be exceptionally beautiful and I thought I’d share some photos with you.
And I looked up and spotted a jet plane. Whenever I see one I wonder who is on it and where they are going — maybe a little childish, but I can’t help myself. I wonder what they are seeing as they look out their windows.
My son & I may have helped a few seeds catch a ride in the breeze — there is always something to explore with the kids outside that they might have forgotten or never seen before. It makes each hike so much fun!
When we finally settled in after swimming and trick or treating, I picked up my Deco Cardigan & got serious about working the collar. After all, there is nothing like a chilly hike through late autumn to remind a knitter of the coming need for handknits.
So thankful for this day with my family, for finishing another project, and for the ability to move on to another. On the cusp of winter the natural world may be slowing down, but there is still so much to discover each day. And I — and all of us as knitters — have more to do than ever.
