This is my fourth fall

For some reason I woke up quite early the other morning. And as usual I turned on my computer first before I made my first trip to the bathroom. After the computer, I turned on the TV next to check on the weather. That’s how I started my day normally.

We are going to have a nice day today… that is according to the meteorologist. I trust him. Hubby trusts him too but he is jealous of him because he knows that I find him cute and I have a crush on him. Hahahaha. After giving the weather forecast he said… it’s the start of the Autumnal equinox. I don’t know about the equinox but I know that autumn means that summer finally ends and winter is just around the corner.

This is my fourth autumn or fall here in Maine so I know what to expect now. I know that the nights will be longer now. I know that 8 pm is already dark. I know that we will have cooler temperatures. I know that the maple leaves will start to change its color and will soon fall from the trees. I know that I will be raking a lot now and that will replace running as my exercise. I know too that I need to cover up now and my tank tops are no longer appropriate to wear.

Parsonfield, Maine

This is my fourth fall and I know exactly what to do. I have to organize my closet again to make room for our fall and winter clothes. I have to sort out my summer clothes... keep those that still fit and throw or give away those that don’t. I have to put all my summer clothes in totes and keep them in the cellar. And I have to bring up the fall/winter totes to give way for spring/summer totes. It’s all about the totes now.

Porter, Maine

This is my fourth fall and it means that Maine landscape will be changing dramatically to mono-chromatic red-orange-brown hue. When it happens I know for sure that I will be anticipating the beautiful sights of Maine. When it happens I will be swept away by the breathtaking view of the countryside. When it happens I will be again awed by the colorful palette of the horizon. When it happens it will feel like I am living in a life-size canvas again.

This is my fourth fall season and I know it will not be the same as the first or the second or the third. And just like every changing seasons my life is constantly changing too. Maybe this fall, things will turn as colorful as the maple leaves. And as they fall on the ground I hope my life will also find the beauty of being free and well-grounded, literally and figuratively.

Well, Fall it is. And when it is fall... I can't help but fall in love - with fall.

Watching Sunset with Hubby

As I already mentioned in my previous post... I work on weekends now too. Given the situation, Hubby and I spend less time together. Oh, how I miss him so much. But today, for some reason we got the chance to be together and spent even just a few hours watching the sunset.

Dearest Sweetest,
It's been a long time since I last wrote you a letter. Well, there is nothing very important that I really want to tell you right now. It's just that I miss you so much.
I miss our weekends at the mountain. Even if I whined a lot... I had to admit I miss camping and gold panning with you.
I miss our movie nights on weekends. It's been a long time since we last watched a movie. I think the last movie we watched was "The Princess and the Frog". hahaha It is now on DVD and Blu-ray. 
And most importantly, I miss our Chinese dining out too. Though we still eat Chinese on Friday nights, I miss trying out different Chinese Restaurants every weekends.
Well, I cannot complain now. We need to do what we have to. I need to work so we need to sacrifice some few things we love to do. And tonight is indeed a wonderful night. I am so happy that even for a few hours were were able to have supper together while watching the sunset. And I enjoyed it so much.
I love you and I still miss you.

Your Sweetie

So today, we shared a KFC diner "to go" and drove to Sebago Lake scenic view parking lot and had supper inside our car... watching the sunset.

Oh, Work!

I work on weekends now. I am not complaining or whining. I am just stating a fact. The fact that I still have to be up at daybreak and no time to stay in bed late. But it is okay. I enjoy what I am doing.
It was supposed to be a part-time job for the summer only where I worked as a Behavioral Health Professional.
At first it was just something that I want to do for the summer since school was out and I didn't want to do summer camp.
Eventually, I kinda like what I was doing so I continued working.
Why not? My work description is to play with a kid and I know I am good at that. wink*

Football Season

One of the most awaited seasons here in Maine or perhaps for the whole United States, is Football Season. Well, I have to admit I don’t know anything about football. The game is not that popular from where I came from, basketball is. And even with basketball I know nothing about it too in terms of the technicalities and rules of the games. I am not the athletic type. I am more into indoor games because I hate getting sweaty. hahahaha

I was introduced to football by my Hubby. A typical American guy, he is a true-blooded football fan. And when it is football night, he monopolizes the remote so I don’t have any choice but to watch the game too. Eventually, I began to like the game. It didn’t take long for me to appreciate the game because it is exciting. Ultimately, I soon realized that I am beginning to be a real fan too and would watch the game way past my bedtime while Hubby was already snoring the night away. And I would also include in my grocery list some snacks [which I don’t usually do] for our football nights.

Well, it's the start of the football season and it's the start of hogging the remote. Hayys

Cups and Shades

This weekend, my friend Medy, her daughter Maya and I went to New Hampshire to check out our favorite store for some unique stuff.

And we did find some cups.
Personalized cups for the Lilliputians...
and hot cups for Dads.
We also found some cool shades and had fun trying them on.

We bought a few stuff but none of the shades and the cups.
The weekend ended at Bay Haven where we had sumptuous seafood diner.

The Shoes

I mentioned in my previous post that I went shopping during my "Me Time" to relax. Don't make me justify that statement anymore. If you are not a woman... don't even ask. LOL. Anyway, as I have said I bought a couple pairs of shoes. One of the shoes is actually for my niece and the other one is for myself. Well, I don't really need a new pair of shoes right now. But I feel that I need to justify why I bought that shoes, anyway.

So here are the reasons...

1. I found the shoes interesting and extra-ordinary. So I fit them.

2. As I was fitting them, two ladies saw me and they said... "They look so cute on you, buy them!"

3. I love heels and this pair of shoes has very unique heels.

4. And though I don't know where and when am I going to wear them or worse if I could really walk on them...

5. I bought them because of the price!

So what do you think? Where will I wear them? What dress should I match with them? Will I be able to walk with them? Did I have a great deal with them? Do I really need them?
