I love fall! This weekend we had typical fall weather, it was windy, we had some rain shower, and even some scattered thunderstorms. I love it!
During the worst thunderstorms we stayed inside. In between, my daughter and I spent as much time as we could outside. That added up to many wonderful hours this past weekend. The temperature dropped to very comfortable 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit. You could actually do things outside without worrying about the heat, staying hydrated, getting out of the sun etc. both my daughter and I enjoyed it immensely.
Like water in the desert is wisdom to the soul.

When nature turns extraordinary, your heart turns humble. You simply bow before the glory.
This Saturday was my first day off in along time. The first day I didn’t get up super early to feed, and clean for horses. I enjoy the ranch work, and it’s become a routine for both me and my daughter. So much that on Saturday my daughter actually throw a fit (something she rarely does,) when she realized that we weren’t going to the horses. I couldn’t really get her to understand that the owner actually was going to do the work herself. After a couple minutes she calmed down and we had a wonderful walk in the desert.
I got a flashback form my time working as a preschool teacher, it could sometimes be challenging to get all the kids outside (think Sweden subarctic climate, lots and lots of clothes, 20 kids in the hallway..,) but as soon as they all were out that door, they always enjoyed it. It’s almost like magic, what a little fresh air, and some time in nature can do. In the end the kids at my school usually didn’t want to go back inside. That’s exactly how my daughter is today. ..and I love it!
I hope YOU had a wonderful weekend, and that you enjoyed the photos from our weekend 🙂
The first light is almost here (it’s 6.17 am in Nevada,) and it’s time for me to go outside. Have an awesome day!
