Well, I am writing today to try to stay in the habit, but I am less than lacking in motivation. Jay has a migraine and hasn't really been 'well' in weeks, Katherine is having a fussy sort of day which leads me to believe that she is fighting off a bug, or something, and I woke up late and very groggy. There, that about sums up the whole day.

On another note, I am getting close to finishing Katherine's shrug for her birthday and, when she asked who it is for, I told her, "A little girl." The good thing is that she knows that I make things to donate, so that means that she won't likely question much, even if she suspects it. It is very pretty and I really like the pattern, so I will try to post pictures as soon as it gets finished.

Ah, the impending fall, I can hard wait for the settling that follows. I know it is still a month away, or more, technically and I do alright with the nice weather, but there is so much to do out of the house, it is hard to find time to just be. I find a calming peace in the change of seasons from hot, busy and crazy, to cooler, settling and abundant with harvest foods.

With Jay's health the way it is, I am not sure that we will be able to do anything at all for holidays away from home, whether it is across town, the state or country, so you can imagine that it may be a slow holiday season as well. We shall see, as he will be taking steps to try to reduce his overall stress. Such is life, or at least ours.

Well, I am off to see if Jay needs his second round of migraine meds. Glory to God for all things (not just what we like or want)
