I found a little fox and a wolf in the woods today.
Christy and I met up with the kiddos for a walk in the POURING rain. Case and Finn loved the puddles and muddy leaves! And then it cleared up to a perfect blue sky and a million sparkling drips in the leaves. We went out to lunch and then I took the boys on another walk to Marsh Island.
I did see a really big racoon on the trail and lots and lots of squirrels. Oliver LOVES animals, and he loves all the leaves. He would point up to pretty changing lit up red ones overhead and say, “Treeeee!” I should also confess how I got SO ANGRY at a car that didn’t stop for us when we were stepping out into the street to cross, but just swerved around us instead, that I yelled at the top of my lungs and flailed my arms “I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU DIDN’T STOP!!!” I’m a little on edge. Yesterday I fell down the stairs with Oliver (we’re okay, but Oliver has a couple chipped teeth and a bump on his head and I feel like half my body has whip lash and my ribs and hip hurt a bit). Ever since I’ve been nervous about walking in general. I’m usually not so uneasy, but I had trouble even just walking downhill in the rain today because I was getting so nervous. I feel like Mrs. Bennet: “YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW I SUFFER. MY POOR NERVES!”
