I’ve had a tough time getting my head back in the game after the election last week. But I’m definitely getting there, and I’m tired of obsessing, tired of reading endless articles about how it all went wrong. I’m taking some concrete steps in my community, with my own economic power, with my time to do what I can at a local level to make life better. The results are the results, I’m not ready to overthrow the government. But I am ready to volunteer, to listen to people, to donate, to see how I can help with future political campaigns, to write, etc. But for now, here are some beautiful fall pictures while I get my head organized. The world itself is still damn gorgeous.

October 2016

Last month we painted our bedroom, had new carpet installed, Adam was out of town for a week on business, Hannah missed 3 or so days of school with a bug that just lingered, Halloween happened, H filmed to be on Sesame Street, I started a YouTube channel, my friend Kathy’s book was released, we saw the neurologist for a checkup for H, and I tackled about 70 trillion projects around the house.

Last Sunday H, my brother, my nephew, and I went to Scothigh Farm in Rumson for the VNA Children’s Auxiliary’s Halloween Fest. It was a great fundraiser for the Children and Family Health Institute, and the kids had a ball.

Last Friday we headed to Battleview Orchards after school to get our apples. We’re late this year, we’re usually out in September. But late meant that the late varieties of apples, like Granny Smiths, were finally available. We never get Granny Smiths!

I am so behind on posts, I’ve been having computer problems lately. I’ve had a ton of photos on my phone ready to download for posts, but my laptop hasn’t entirely cooperated. So, let’s talk about fall decorating!

September 2016 Outfits

This was September…running around Disney World in shorts and sneakers, then getting through back to school craziness, also in shorts and sneakers. September was hot this year. We finally got the first good turtleneck day on the 24th, and look at that giant grin I’m sporting in that teal turtleneck. Fall is my season!

Last Monday was Hannah’s first day. Technically the first day was right after Labor Day, but we were in Florida. Her school does a couple of phase-in weeks to start the year, and she’s only 4, so we figured if ever there was a time to take advantage of low crowds for our sensory kid, this was it.

Porchiness is not a word, but let’s just pretend. Here’s my fall porchscape (pretty sure this is also not a word, but see if I care). Some of these mums and pumpkins have fallen on hard times since I took these photos a few weeks ago, but it is still so seasonal out there.

October 2015 Outfits-001

I’ve needed this week to kind of reboot a little and shift gears from fall/Halloween to HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL THE THINGS TO DO!!!

But October was pretty great. Mild weather, a great party, a killer homemade Halloween costume for Hannah. I got TWO new chunky turtleneck sweaters, which means prepare to see those two sweaters in constant rotation until March. I do not play around when it comes to turtleneck season.

fall collage with pre-k

Last month I read a ton of fall books with the two pre-k classes. After we finished our stories we made these fall collages one week.

I found this tree coloring page online and tweaked the size to make it just right. Then I put piles of cut-up construction paper at the tables and let the kids go to town with crayons, glue sticks, and the paper.
