It’s the first day of school and all is quiet and still in the house.
Patience leaves when it is still dark out, so I walked her to the bus stop and sent her off without too much kissing and hugging…can’t embarrass her!
And Minate walks to school an hour later. I could barely snap a picture of her because she was in such a hurry to go to the neighbors house and walk with her friend. I didn’t want her to go. I wanted her to wait here with us until it was time to go, but The BG made me let go.
She forgot to even give me a hug!!
So when The BG was heading out to work and saw me looking forlorn, “Are you leaving me too?” I said pathetically.
“And you think you won’t have Empty Nest Syndrome,” he teased. He told me to walk over and get my hug from Minate…so I did. I felt better, and Minate just laughed at me.
It is pretty strange to me that I couldn’t wait to get back to school and have the kids back to a routine , but this morning I couldn’t let go.
I want my kids back!!!!
I ‘m having a Mom moment I said to myself, I’ll get over it.
I will say this though, the first cup of coffee without ten fights to break up was a pretty great tasting cup of coffee!! LOL
The BG and I worked on a new project yesterday. We’ve been really into making things out of reclaimed wood.
He made me a really cool table for the bathroom re-decorating upstairs, and a really cool wooden backdrop for one of my shelves yesterday.
And here it is sitting on my shelf . I made a fall wreath to hang on it.
I’ve been slowly adding fall decor to the tables and shelves.
I really wanted to try and be kind of minimal this year.
I’m just getting less and less into all the fuss of the pumpkin dolls and primitive stuff that I have boxes and boxes of. I’m sure they will make their way out for Halloween decorating, but for now I am just liking a more laid back look.
I picked up some beautiful dried gourds at The Olde Granary a couple weekends ago, and tried to sprinkle them around.
I’ll leave you with one last fall-ish instagram pic I took last weekend.
