Fall Has Arrived...

Fall has officially set in, and picnic season is over.  I didn't get as many of them in as I wanted, but the ones I did were wonderful (lookin' at you love!).

I am determined to not let the loss of bright skies diminish my spirit, as it so did last fall/winter.  I can maintain summer picnic spirits in as many moments as mentally and physically possible (in such a serious medical condition).  I am going to start projects (and work harder on finishing them!), and try to convince myself that pain doesn't have to darken my light.

I want:
  • Good health
  • Good food
  • Good friends
  • Good surroundings
  • Good ambitions
I'm going to let my daydreams take me away!

(P.S. I started LDN today - experiencing a lot of insomnia, nausea, and vivid dreams [when I do sleep!]).

You can always have an indoor picnic in your living room. :-) Blessings.

I agree with Jamie, Annie. If picnics lift your spirits, put on all the lights, make the room as bright as possible and put down that picnic cloth! (There's an episode in Big Love where they do that and it looked like a lot of fun.)

I hope you adjust to the LDN soon. Some people get vivid dreams and really enjoy them!

Fall is my favourite season, so I look forward to the autumnal equinox! I love the crisp days, the glorious colours, the tart apples, the earthy smells.
Of course, I do know that the next season is winter. But, for now I'll just jump in those piles of raked leaves, or scuffle through the ones that line the sidewalks!
Happy Autumn to all.

Annie -

what wonderful wishes for fall! Though, we're back to summer here, with temps in the 90s and humid - yuck! I was enjoying the cooler weather.

Hang in there with LDN - I didn't have any side effects and felt better after the first dose, but I know that for most people who have sleep side effects, they go away after a week or two. I hope that's true for you and that it helps you!!
