This is a bold statement for a Texan to make, as arguably, we experience less of this fine season than those northern folk.
I love fall.
I love Chai tea, the freshness of cooler temperatures, piles of leaves, and anything pumpkin. Especially pumpkin patch pictures, as modeled above by my adorable nephew, Levi. Even my darling man isn't too good to model for such a picture. He even bought me a pumpkin for the porch. He's a keeper.
Geoff and I are doing our best to keep step with this season of transition by entering a season of the same in our own lives (or should I say, we are continuing our season of transition).
We're moving. Again.
We've been living in a cute little house in a labor for lodging exchange affectionately referred to as RENTovating. Well, our deadline to have the house complete comes with the end of the month.
No, we're not done. Thanks for asking.
Geoff bailed and has been in Amarillo all week. I'm hopeless without him.
Well, it's not all that bad but our ideal schedule of working during the day and renovating by evening/night has been quite affected by business trips of late. It's hard to fix up a house in Temple while you're in Amarillo. That's a fact.
Most recently we spent all of last week there up until our newest nephew was born. Geoff flew back to Amarillo this past Tuesday and I haven't seen him since. I knew the one-way ticket was a bad idea.
In the meantime, he's been working LONG hours up there while I've done my best to finish projects here. Only problem, we make a really good pair on these jobs. Team Carroll is not the same.
Take tiling for example. He measures and cuts, while I trowell and set the tile. It's a dynamic duo. Our shower needs this duo; it's looking a bit naked at present. There are several such tasks yet to complete that I only know how to do half way without him. It's a sappy story, I know.
Thankfully my dad stepped in to help, again, and took out the huge stump in the front yard that was quite the impressive feat. In addition, a new roof was put on the house today and all the hammering and banging made me feel like there was a mass team effort going on. In reality, there were several on the roof and only Reyah and I tackling the inside. They were done much faster.
