Cold Enough to Dream of Snow

It's brisk and crisp, and I doubt the temperatures will rise higher than 80 degrees. Brrrr. Seriously, it is an overcast morning with a distinct breeze and chill factor, and I am wearing a long sleeved T-shirt. I have on socks. I shut the window before I showered, and I was sing-humming "Let it Snow, Let it snow, Let it Snow!" We take what we can get, and what we got has me ready for full force Fall fun.

Tomorrow we pack the kidlets, break open the piggy banks and drive to Nate's Butt Farm (aka Bate's Nut Farm.) Holly and I are in the mood for pumpkin picking, goat feeding, cider sipping country fun. My guys have been counting down the days for this field trip, and looking forward to the visit with cousin Nicholas. Hopefully we can enjoy the corn field maze, maybe a tractor ride, and lunch under the mulberry trees. We will find the best 4 pumpkins for our biennial Halloween party, and maybe a few more, because we just love pumpkins.

It's good to have a plan. There may be a lot that is unresolved just yet, but tomorrow we will be with family and enjoying a tradition, making new memories, and setting aside worries for a while.
