Oh the Fall! 10/29/2008

I know that I keep mentioning how much I love the fall, but boy, do I!  This is so my season, and I can't get enough of it.  This year, September and October have been so beautiful, with hardly any rain.  So, to show my appreciation for the great weather, I have been trying to take the kids on as many walks as the weather and our schedules will permit. 

Today, we walked downtown Camas and I visited my first antique shop.  I couldn't believe that I, too, love antique shops!  Antique shop lovers always seemed to be a group of people that I wasn't quite part of, not yet anyway.  But there I was enjoying every nook and cranny of that shop.  I even came across a book titled Caffeine for the Mind or something to that effect, and it had lots of creative writing prompts.  It looked cool, but after some dialogue with myself about whether or not I needed the book, or if I just felt obligated to buy the book because I love them, love to write, and will soon teach writing, I decided against it.  While scanning it, it seemed a little hard to flip open and dive into.  Because afterall, a book on writing prompts should be just that--prompt and to the point. 

But I wont forget to mention that I stopped by Squeeze & Grind at the beginning of my liesurely walk, to pick up a chai tea and a shortbread cookie for Brooklynn.  There is nothing like a walk on a fall day with a warm cup of tea.  These are special moments for me.

This is one of my favorite things to do as well. I love your pictures! We haven't had a chance to get down there this year but my pics of the kids and I taking a crisp fall day walk are some of my favorites from last year and the memories we made are the lasting kind.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
