Happy Friday Friends!
This week flew by for me - hope it was a fun fast week for you too! Hooray for the weekend ahead!! The weather has been getting colder around here, and more and more leaves fall from the trees everyday. I have been smelling the wonderful musky smell of wood smoke from a neighbor's stove almost daily. All signs that we're coming to that hibernation time of year up here in my northwoods. So today I wanted to share how I've been nesting around my home and getting ready to settle in for the hibernation time ahead.
I've been slowly accumulating, and stocking up on, all things cold and flu season. My daughter has been sick a bit recently so I've already been spraying my lysol and disinfecting with wipes!
I know it's not exactly related to hibernating - but we've finally been picking up the last of our pumpkins for the upcoming Halloween holiday (also a sign of how fast time is flying towards the cold and holiday season). We plan to carve up this big boy soon and toast the pumpkin seeds. One of my favorite Fall activities!
I've finally, slowly, been going through and organizing some of my most recent items I've picked up for my scrapbooking and other future projects. That's one thing that keeps me sane during the LONG months we wait out the cold and snow.... my crafting projects.
I've been taking in all the beauty of the remaining leaves as much as I'm able! Whether it'd be running errands, or taking my MIL for a drive on the days I caregive for her, or even taking more of the side roads and beautiful tree lined streets when I pick up my daughter from school. I know the time is so fleeting now so I try to oooh and aaah over each one just a little while longer.
