Today I am thankful for...
~a glorious walk in the woods after a soggy day of pouring down rain. The chicken yard is a mud and chicken poop pit, the backyard is a dead grass and dog poop mess, but the woods were beautiful. And since we fired up the woodstove this weekend, we came home to a warm house and hot apple cider. I always forget how much I love heating with wood. It instantly makes the house feel more like a home and I smile when I go outside and smell the familiar smell on my clothes and in my daughter's hair. It makes me feel like I'm part of a secret society.
I think the leaf color has been amazing the past two weeks - maybe the final oncoming of cold temps made them realize that it is actually Autumn and they have a job to do. The rain yesterday brought a ton of leaves as well as water down and the forest floor was a carpet of red, yellow, and brown. Lovely season, lovely day. Thankful that I could be out soaking it up.
What are you thankful for today?
