How is it already September?!?!?! Where is 2021 going??? Since it's not only September, but also the first Wednesday of the month, it's time for "Currently" with Anne at in residence.
Oh my goodness -- it's the beginning of so many things right now. I just got hired four days a week to permanent hours after a year and a half of working as a substitute secretary for our school board! I'm so excited to get to really know, and invest in, one school. So I'm beginning to get to know the teachers and helping out with the beginning of the school year.
I recently began the Couch to 5K program so I'm beginning to run a little more these days.
Last night we had a meeting for Rachel's dance company and next week they are beginning Nutcracker rehearsals which is Rachel's first time to participate in this ballet. And Sam is beginning middle school next week!!!
So many things are "beginning" for our family right now.
Our summer has been long and wonderful but it is ending. I wanted to get a beautiful picture of the sunset but we were talking to my parents on the phone and I forgot until the last minute. Thus, you get this rushed, you can hardly see it, picture of a sunset and that kind of describes how our summer is ending -- it feels rushed and "is this really it?!?!?!" School starts back for the kids on Tuesday so yes, summer is ending.
I am loving the variety of tomatoes we're getting in our CSA (community shared agriculture) these days. I love tomatoes in general and I found these ones so visually appealing. The end of summer produce is some of my favourite food of the year.
Speaking of CSA, Rachel enjoyed picking flowers as one of our choices. She was very intentional about making her bouquet and she did a fabulous job!
This quote inspires me at work every time I go to the bathroom (hahaha!) so I am posting it here to share with all of you. It perfectly describes why I've started running and am being more intentional about getting more exercise these days. Can any of you relate to this as strongly as I can?
