So here's how the day goes (an abbreviated version, but not by much!):
Wake up around 8:30. Kieran has informed me that he's eaten most of the blueberries I picked yesterday and which I had intended to turn into some sort of spectacular cake. Oh well. That will teach me to sleep in!
Breakfast cereal and coffee on the deck. I putter. A little chore here, a little chore there. Dishes done and kitchen counters clean. I don't want to overdo...
Anne calls and we make a plan to hike at Shackford Head State Park, which we do. We have a lovely hike. The weather is perfect. As Kieran is fond of saying, it's not too hot, not too cold. The sun is nice and warm on our heads.
|We followed the Schooner Trail, Kieran acting as hike leader. Patrick and I bring up the rear, all of us chatting and appreciating our gorgeous surroundings and the beautiful fall day.|
|Cecelia is becoming quite a hiker! She's changing so much.|
|Will you just look at that face? How I love this little guy! At this point he had just eaten some blackberries he discovered on the forest floor!|
|Kieran likes to carry our supplies in his backpack.|
|This second hand, yard sale, one dollar boogie board has provided Kieran no end of fun!|
|The Ada Lore passes between us and Deer Island.|
|Always with the knitting...|
I just never seem to tire of days like these. I doubt I ever will.
