Beautiful Fall

The weather has been so nice this season! We’ve definitely had crappy days in between, but overall we can’t complain. It’s so bittersweet though when we realize we could have sat out with Sam in the yard, enjoying the last sun rays before Winter. On the other hand though, this situation would have been much more depressing with dark nasty weather. So I guess it depends on how you look at things …

Mushrooms are always ridiculous around our house lol But it does make for pretty pictures.

Meanwhile, I have mastered the art of keeping my mind so busy that it won’t dwell on the sadness. I’m determined to go forward with our lives and to focus on positive, fun things. Sooo … here is my new hobby:

I can already tell you, this is totally a temporary phase lol But that’s what works for me at the moment. Here’s my 500 pieces achievement. I have now stepped up my game a notch and have tackled a 1000 piece challenge. Gert likes to help out, and some evenings we sit in the living room and work on our puzzle instead of watching crap on TV.

I’m thinking about putting up the Christmas tree earlier this year. I swore last year that this Christmas would be extra fun, so whether the universe likes it or not, we are going to enjoy ourselves, damn it.
