farmers market haul

It is definitely autumn. We walked home carrying all this—plus the apples we've already eaten, the chicken thighs, the pork roast, the eggs—in the rain and chill. Up the hill. Wearing my new bright orange sweater.

I am happy for it, in so many ways. Perhaps there will be some slowing-down. There will also be some speed-racing, some new friends, some tests of self. There will be long leggings, the heaters ticking on and off in yoga, the stars coming down earlier.

I am looking forward to hot chocolate, to baking cookies, to squash soup and mashed potatoes. I am looking forward to putting more words down on the page. I hope to poem more this month, maybe even daily, because I deserve it. I hope, most of all, for calm and energy.

What are you hoping to do with this month?

Happy fall and happy birthday! I am also hoping to enjoy veggies and poetry and coziness. I think ... if I have a goal for October, it's to smooth out some of the rough edges in my coping with some predictable sources of stress, and find or make more time to do the things I love both at work and at home. Enjoying the fall weather sounds good too!

So far it's still a goal in progress. I'll try to do a round-up post at some point.

I got a small pumpkin for cooking purposes the other day. *glee* And lots of potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, and greens.

I hope your month continues to contain autumnal delights?

That's a lovely haul.

I hope to close some browser tabs (really) and to read some fiction.
