Storing Up For Winter

Today just has that feel about it.  You know- that feel that this could be the last of the beautiful fall days before Old Man Winter sets in?  We had a busy schedule planned out for the day that included errands of all kinds- the bank, the library, allergy shots and the grocery.  But midway through the day, when the kids said, "Let's go to Granny's to jump in the leaves!"  I couldn't help but think that a trip to the farm sounded way more fun than the grocery.  Luckily, Granny Sadie had a clear agenda.  When she suggested that we make some sandwiches and have a picnic back at the creek, we just had to do it!  After all, we are storing up the sunshine for the winter!  It was such a lovely day that was so needed by all of us.  As we were riding in the back of the truck to get to the creek, Sadie took a giant deep breath and said, "Ahhhh... my favorite thing is being in a big open space with my family!"  Cheesy?  Absolutley- but it just goes to show, that the best things in life are free.  Who needs Disney Land when there are rocks to skip, trees to climb, creeks to cross and Grannys to squeeze?

A little light reading on Botswana up in the tree :-)
