I feel like my blogging lately has become a laundry list of things I’ve done and things I still need to do. How about a little about not much. We’re having a beautiful Fall. It’s been in the 60s and 70s for weeks — crazy for Chicago. A little global-warming scary but such a lifesaver for the mom of a toddler. Daylight Savings Time however is just as always, depressing and hard to adjust to. I’m seeing wake up times in the 6’s again and the dark at 5 is such an adjustment.
We were afraid since we had such a hot long dry summer that we’d get a bum turning leaf season but it’s been great. Amazing colors and it seems much much longer than normal. Should be close to over soon. We had an overnight storm this week and now the village is blanketed in a thick layer of yellow and orange leaves. A delight for a leaf-kicking toddler!
Oscar and I have been having so much fun lately. We’ve been on lots of field trips, Museum of Science and Industry, the petting zoo, seen 2 model trains, the aquarium and the arboreteum. Of couse, it’s not all fish viewing and leaf kicking around here… in the past week I’ve seen more tantrums than ever. Maybe the ‘terrible’ part of almost two kicking in? Maybe because his mother thinks she’s a gd elf in santa’s workshop and is always knitting or something while playing trains? or maybe it’s just because the Halloween chocolate has run out.
