The pendulum is swinging high on both sides lately...we are feeling either great sadness or joy...relief or anxiety. Somethings never change however and that includes our annual apple pick. This year it was HOT and unseasonable so. Charlotte had her head in a book the entire time and Court spent most of it in the tops of trees. I drank cold cider instead of hot and didn't know whether to be happy or sad about it. I settled on being unsettled.
There is so much change happening and I relish in it but I'm not quite ready to share it. It has something to do with our big old red maple and how much I am going to miss it.
This weekend we will make our pile of leaves even bigger and may find our cheeks turn rosy too.
