day in the woods, fall, and apparitions

I’m rapidly losing the ability to string words together in a coherent fashion, so let’s get right to three beautiful things from my past week:

1. On Sunday, Rudi, John, Nicole, and I headed out to a Maryland forest for the local renaissance faire. There were people’s costumes to admire and/or marvel at, there was comedy, there was jousting (although I missed all the battle parts and just saw people riding horses…), there was a slide amidst the trees, there were arrows to shoot (my enemies remain safe), and there was a garland to buy. The trees were golden, the skies were blue, and the company was lovely. A perfect day of rest.

2. Just as I reached home tonight, the scent of autumn wafted over me.

3. Ghosts peek out of a neighbor’s windows at me. They remind me of Casper’s friends, though, so it’s okay.

How about you? What’s beautiful in your world this week?

1. After I complained that we’ve been eating too much meat, my husband thoughtfully prepared some of my favorite vegetarian meals.
2. Knowing I had had a horrible night, my husband woke up early the next day and took care of the children so I could get a little extra sleep.
3. The autumn leaves are beautiful. I know the fall foliage is there for all to see, but I still can’t help feeling that Nature puts on the whole show just for me.
