Mmmmm, fall is here!  Today I went out to Paugh's Orchard and got some fresh apples and cidar and honey to celebrate the new season.  :)  The apples were yummy!  I'm thinking I might try my hand at apple pie or applesauce.  We'll see how much time I have. 

I love seasons!  I was telling my hairdresser today (yes, I got my hair cut! Pics to come soon...) that I don't think I could live somewhere where it was the same temperature all year, without the changing seasons.  With each new season (hmm, reminds me of that Nicole Nordeman song) I feel a fresh start to life.  And fall is so beautiful and crisp and colorful.  Thank you, God, for the seasons!

Besides the fact that fall has given me something to get excited about, I'm feeling a bit... unmotivated.  I have no motivation to exercise, no motivation to clean my house,  and no motivation to work.  All I feel like doing is day-dreaming and sitting in my house - doing nothing.  I'm hoping this is a phase that I will soon get over.  I have things to do, but after I come home from school, I don't feel like doing anything!  Grrr.  Perhaps it's because I come home to an empty house with no one to talk or vent to.  I'm frustrated with myself, and yet I don't do anything about it.  HELP!

Please pray for me, friends.  :)  I guess I need to be thankful for what I DO have instead of moping around wishing for things to happen.  God, help me to be thankful for ALL of your blessings.

hey i think it'll just be a phase... you'll get company over, so you'll have to clean house, you'll plan an activity so you don't have time to mope...things will happen and you'll feel motivated again. :) but i will pray for you because those are frustrating times and a little depressing when you get nothing done. i've so been there though! God gives us purpose in our lives - so dwell on that! :) love you missy and i enjoy keeping in touch thru you blog!

Oh, don't be sad Missy! Just like Angie said, I'm sure this is just a phase. It'll pass. Sometimes I think our bodies need to mope for a little bit, to re-coup.

And yes, I LOVE fall. Now until New Years Day is a great time! I really want some apple cider and pecan pie. Mmmm.
