Today is our last day in our rental. We've been here for 2 years, and we've really enjoyed it. We've had the best landlords ever, and our upstairs neighbor is our friend. Of course, I would be much more excited about moving out if we were moving straight into our house. However, somehow it seems fitting that we're moving out now.
Fall is definitely in the air. I'm trying to ignore it for as long as possible. Fortunately, we're supposed to have a spectacular weekend here. However, this time of year, even when it's warm outside, you can still sense fall hovering about. There's just the tiniest nip in the air, and there is a distinctive light and shading during the fall, even before any leaves have fallen. It really does seem like the perfect time for a transition, and I'm embracing it.
I went outside and took a few photos of the hydrangea outside our front window. Most of the flowers are fading, but there are still a few lively ones holding on, and I thought it was such a nice way to capture this time of year. However, as I snapped my last photo, the batteries in my camera died. At first I was really disappointed because, of course, the new batteries have been packed away, and there wasn't going to be a way for me to post the photos. But after a moment, I thought about it, and it just seemed so fitting. The symbolism of the dying batteries could not escape me.
So, I'll leave you with that. My batteries are dying, and I'm off to recharge them. I'm not sure how long I'll be away. I may have limited internet access while I'm out there, but I think I'm probably going to just stay away and focus on creating things. You would not believe how much fabric I'm taking with me. I just hope it fits in our little rabbit.
I wish you all a wonderful transition into fall. I'll be back soon, and I'll be so excited to see everything you all will be up to while I'm away.
