September Wrap-Up

It's hard to believe today is Sept. 30th. It's been a whirlwind month with me buying a condo and planning a move back to the city. My house sold without me even advertising or putting a sign out front. How much of this experience was fate and how much divine intervention? I'm not sure. But it feels so right. Not only that, the entire endeaor has taken not quite a month.
A friend told me when I make decisions I should ask myself if the decision felt light or heavy. From the very beginning thinking about buying a condo and moving closer to town just felt right. The house and two acres here in the country has been a huge responsibility this summer with grass growing at breakneck speed. Thankfully my daughter Susan and her family have pitched in and cut grass and weeded. Whew. I not only do not like to cut grass but this summer I was unable to cut it. It kept them busy cutting their five acres and my two. Now, problem solved.
I move October 13th. I'm excited and scared. Excited because I'll be so much closer to - well - everything. Shopping, restaurants, my doctors, my church. Old friends. A new writing group.
I've sorted and cleaned files and put my writing world in order. When I do get settled I hope to FINALLY finish the project I've been working on for way too long. MISSING: SWEET BABY JAMES. Then I have at least three novels to finish before I start on anything new. After James is finished I may write some short stories. I miss writing them. Not only are they fun to write but much quicker to finish than a novel. Which with me seems to take a lifetime.
I'm loving the fall weather. The leaves here have changed drastically in the last week. It seems the peak will be here sooner than we expected. I love this time of year when everything feels fresh and new.
How's the weather in your neck of the woods? Here, it's been lovely. A bit of rain today but not enough to spoil the beauty of a fall day in Ohio.
Have a great week. Let me know what's going on with you and yours. Blessings and hugs.
