The World Has Continued to Turn

Well, in the past week I have been quite reasonably distracted. I have been home bound; recovering and just staring at our daughter.

I have felt as though all time has stopped. My father, who fell asleep on the couch yesterday, can probably attest to that as well. When a new baby is around to distract you it seems as though the world has changed it's rotation, that there are no seasons, or at least that they have all stopped to gaze right along with you.

This morning I stepped outside of the house and it seems as though the whole world has shifted. It is fall here. The leaves are all in varying degrees of change, the air is cold, the Wyoming wind seems to have returned. I can't believe that on this day last week I was wearing a light summery dress and today it is time to break out the jackets. Maybe this week we'll take a little drive to see the fall colors emerging around town. I love fall.

Have you noticed the seasonal shift as well? Has it been sudden in your area?

First I'm amazed at how frequently you've been posting! When Grace was born, I remember clearly going outside after the first week, and the trees were in bloom and Spring had arrived. I think it's wonderful that your world has stopped to gaze with you :) Enjoy your drive to take in Fall!
