my Sanctuary


Welcome to my sanctuary. This is a place for me to share the ups and downs of my life as a mother, woman, friend, and subbie. To revel in the triumphs and work through the difficult parts, but to always be me...the good...the bad...and the playful.

Fall Is Finally Here

Fall is finally here in Florida and i'm loving it.  Fall has always been my favorite time of year. i love the crisp air and the chilled wind that only seems to come in the fall.  With the colors so brilliantly bright, for some reason even though it should be it should be a sign of death, i feel everything is so alive during the fall. 

Maybe it's the sensory overload, but there is just something about the smell, look and feel of fall that's like no other season.  Well, that and i'm allergic to so many flowers that spring isnt too pleasant for me.

i've never been a big fan of winter...but fall is such a special time of year.  When it's finally cool enough to do things outside for most of the day.  As a child it was also a signal that weeding the garden was done for the year.  i thruly thing that the only carefree days that i had were always in the fall.  There was no getting ready for planting, or horse shows or fair schedules like there was in spring, and it's not so bitter cold as it was in the winter **i grew up a montana girl**. 

Fall was spent reconnecting with friends and spending time out riding horses.  Most all of the yearlings were sold that were going to sell during the summer, and there was no training to be done.  It was just me and my own horse following our own schedule.  May that's why i love this season so much.

Fall to me brings a surge of energy, maybe it's the energy that the earth stores for the winter to rebound everything so vibrantly in the spring.  The potential for the next year being stored with in the rich depths of the earth.

That or it's the fact that i can finally open up the house and lower the air conditioning bill.
