The Simple Things

The photos in this post have sat here waiting for the right words to go with them. They are deserving of some thought....some emotion, but quite frankly....I'm just fresh out of both of those things these days. I don't know what it is about the past few weeks, but I am just plain exhausted. My mind barely functions throughout the day, and it flat out refuses to even try in the evenings. While my body is telling me to stop and rest, my heart is wanting to go, go, GO! I am not emotions are stable, but I am just physically weary. I am in denial that it is the second week of NOVEMBER, and I have so much I WANT to get much I NEED to get done, but find myself falling into be bed earlier and earlier each night. I WANT to do more, but gosh darn it.....I can't.
So, I'm taking it easy....trying not to stress about all the things piling up, and making sure that I keep to the simple things. Cherish the moments as they come, and believe that in not time, I'll be back to my usual productive self. I just wish I could push pause on the calendar so I don't miss out on things while I regroup. Wouldn't that be nice?
It's all good though. How can things be all that bad when I have a super duper Sugar Bear giving me love and kindness each day? Together we enjoyed a local Pumpkin Patch the day before Halloween this year, and watching her heartfelt excitement was enough to give me a bit more energy to make it though the day.



She threw herself into all aspects of the visit, and her infectious chitter chatter had me giggling the entire time.



Running through the patch, looking for just the right one......

And happily embracing it when it was found. ♥



She is such a wonderful spirit who is always ready to help out. I adore watching her problem solve and figure things out.






Such good times we had.

YES...I was there too. Sugar took this shot of me. She was so proud of herself, and I was glad to be documented, as that rarely happens. We used the timer to get the photo of the two of us together at the top of this post.



It was a wonderful afternoon, and I'm so glad that I found the energy to make it happen. I quite nearly didn't go, as it was raining all morning, and I just didn't want to make the long drive.


But, the joy in my little ones heart was worth the extra effort.
Life is Good! but I need sleep. tee hee

That first image of both of you....Heaven!!
Let's figure out how to freeze time.

Autumn said...

Oh how I LOVE that picture of you two! I hear ya, I've been feeling the same way. Sigh... something in the air maybe. :)

Gayle said...

That really looks like a lot of fun.

Don't let the stuff you aren't getting done sit on your shoulders. It will hold you down and it will take longer to get your energy back. We all have stuff to do and never find the time to do it all...that's just life. Feeling better is a far bigger accomplishment.

That girl is such a ray of sunshine. Even from here I can see her light. And yours too!! I have been feeling swamped and tired lately, too...but times like that are SO worth it!

That photo of mama and daughter together - major <3!

Hopefully your funk will end soon! I keep telling myself it'll get better and I truly think it will. Just know that I'm thinking of you! See you Monday. -H

Hehe....I did the same with the two grandchildren....I set my camera on the biggest pumpkin in the field, using the timer to get pictures of the three of us! (While Mommie was nursing baby number three!). That patch was so fun! Love, Heidi

PS I love all your pumpkin patch photos! they're darling

I enjoyed getting to see your pictures, as usual. I need to start taking more. I've been so busy lately that I keep forgetting to take pics.

Looks like you two had fun!

Happy Together said...

FUn! I can't wait until we live in a place that has pumpkin patches again. Going to pick one up at a store just isn't the same. Hope your body calms down for you and you can rest up!

You did it--you nailed the pumpkin patch. I love the first picture (of course) and the wheelbarrow one.
