...and that's what I'm going to do! I'm just going to TYPE, so bear with me!
Fall is among us....
AH! Can you believe it? I can't....for two reasons:
1. This year has flown by WAY too fast.
2. ...it's 82 degrees here...
Yes...it is. It's supposed to cool down Saturday and Sunday, though, and I hope it rains! I love the rain. Love love LOVE the rain. It's a nice vent for emotions if you just stop and watch the rain. Speaking of emotion vents, I've just realized what a few of mine are:
The pen. In my case...the mechanical pencil. :) I draw landscapes, settings that portray my emotions at the moment, and they're all in black and white, and it's usually just a sketch with shading. When I'm brooding, I'll draw billowing, floor-length curtains, dim-lit hallways, and roses with lonely black ribbons tied to them. When I'm happy, I'll draw trees and horses, with the sun casting shadows all around. When I'm mad...uh...I'll just grab a pencil and forcefully jam the lead onto the paper and draw horrible scribbles! =D Another vent for my emotions is music. If I'm in a hyper mood, I'll usually listen to something like Immediate Music, (the orchestra kind). Really, music is a great vent for emotions. It almost seems as though everything built up inside flows out with the music. Music is very powerful. For good or for bad. What would the world be without it? Ah...okay. :) Another vent is if it's storming outside. STORMS! There is NOTHING like a good thunder storm. If the wind is ripping past the house and the clouds are brewing, the game's afoot. I love watching storms. It shows the awesomeness of God. I'm not afraid of storms. (haha, unless it's a hurricane or something!) If dear, protective mom would let me go outside, I would! =D Storms are amazing.
Watching horses run is another vent. Your feelings seem to tear across the field with them. Absolutely breath-taking. Running is yet another, for me, anyway. If I have way too much energy, or am just ticked off about something, running helps. (Running at night under a full moon is even better!!!) Running just...helps. :)
Okay...now my fingers are done typing about venting emotions. Whew. I needed that. :) Now my fingers shall type about the weather, pets, and favorite past-times!
The weather is nice today, but hot. It's very windy, which is the first breath of Fall, I'm thinking. The leaves are turning rapidly, and yesterday I was walking in the woods when I felt like I was in a book. I was standing under a big Red Oak tree when hundreds of leaves began to fall around me! Red, orange, a mixture of both. They drifted towards the ground. It was beautiful!!! I love Autumn! It has to be my favorite, although all seasons are great in one way or another.
As to pets, Lemon especially, he may be doing a smidgen better. (I hope!) We've been feeding him more, and he seems to have more strength. Maybe he'll pull through!
Aaaah....now to favorite past-times. I'm thinking of Fall and Winter right now.
Fall is absolutely charming. Leaves turning, mornings getting colder. The frost settling in. Ah...wonderful. The horses' coats will soon begin to turn thick and furry, and the hay rations will double! I love Autumn mornings. Waking up requires immediately jumping out of bed and grabbing a hoodie, or else you'll freeze! Still dark outside when the alarm goes off at 5:30, I'll get up, grab the afore said hoodie, peer outside into the dark, and sleepily make my way to the quiet kitchen, the only light being the night-light. I'll get myself a mug of hot, wonderful coffee, and will "have coffee with my creamer", as dad puts it. =) I'll have myself a caramel macchiato cafe latte. Aaahh...I can smell it now! Morning, though I hate getting up, has to be one of my favorite times!
And now to Winter. I love the snow! I love waking up to see tiny white flakes of snow drifting past my window, and seeing the horses ankle-deep in it, trudging through the cold blanket. I love the Christmas tree, all lit up colorfully at night. I love the soft Christmas music we listen to every night while sitting in the den. And, of course...I LOVE the fire! The smell, the sounds. Ah...I love it. I can't wait for it all!
Now I shall close...my fingers have rambled far enough!
Love to all!
