Getting excited

for fall.

Also, blowing bubbles with the new bubble machine.
Wearing red for red day (Clifford's birthday), followed by pumpkins for pumpkin day. Avi made that one up himself, and later added pumpkin socks.
Buying fresh flowers and pumpkins at the grocery store, I guess it was pumpkin day. 
Visiting the zoo.  Can't wait for all the halloween decorations and daily trick or treating to start. Also, pushing the stroller all the way to the zoo is a lot more fun than going to the gym.
Watching the Mindy Project.  My favorite comedy of the year by far.
Reading Anne of the Island, because I love her sense of whimsy and could use more of her optimism.  Plus, it was free for download on google books. 
Eating vegan ginger cookies, made by my husband.  They are so spicy and warm and good.  Imagining how good they would be made with real butter instead of oil.  Maybe next time.

Feeling in a bit of a creative slump.  Not sure what direction to take in the future.  I think my insecurity about staying home with the kids and uncertainty about the future have a lot to do with this.
Linked up with Stephanie Howell for her blog your heart series. It is not easy to be that vulnerable on your blog, but I tried.

What are you up to?
