It hardly seems reasonable to claim this as a month of transition from summer to fall but here we are in September. Summer – particularly July and August – bring a paralyzing halt to just about everything. It is simply too hot to work on as many homestead projects as we’re accustomed to. So we’ve learned to use this time for major freelance projects, hiding away in library corners with laptops or tucking under a fan for a hot afternoon.
Now that September is upon is it is firewood collecting and garden bed making, little girl egg hunting and Papa building shelters for new arrivals. It is back in the kitchen and baking and catching our breath when 95 feels like a reprieve from recent weeks. It is having an appetite to gather around a table once more and earlier to bed with no blankets needed… at least for now.
It is full and fast days passed under a changing light that we find only in this, the month of September.
