The last fall leaves are gently swaying outside my window. The sun is shining; the sky is dark blue and crystal clear. It's icy cold and gorgeous.
I'm not working today...in fact, I don't return to work until December 2. My preschool program follows the kindergarten conference schedule, so we don't have school when they don't have school...one of my favorite perks :)
I'm heading to the wildlife refuge after I finish my coffee. It's only a few miles from my house, and I go there often to regroup and recharge.
I haven't blogged much in recent years--this has been a strange time in my life. I guess I'm redefining myself as my children grow up and leave home...a process that has taken its toll in more ways than I imagined. I've taken some positive, writing steps during the past six months though--I joined a local writers' group and started a book group with some new friends.
Baby steps, but they feel good :)
