For the last three years we’ve been going up to the north Georgia mountains to go apple picking, and this year we went a little early. Usually we wait until it really feels like fall and the leaves start to change, but this weekend Drew had to go to the mountains to pick up some things for a bike race, and the idea of a relaxing day up north sounded pretty good. Well, it was fairly relaxing–the place is a lot more crowded in September than it is in November when we usually go. There were a lot more people, but then again there were a lot more apples on the trees, so we wound up bringing a lot more home. We also got pumpkins and had apple donuts and cider, and apple donuts just might be the best kinds of donuts there are. Maybe.
This weekend was lazy–I baked (pumpkin scones and my first ever batch of bagels) and ran. I read lots of the Deborah Mitford book I got from the library (thanks for reminding me, Andrea!), and took naps and did a whole lot of nothing, on purpose. This weekend was the last lazy one in a while. Next week we have a wedding to go to in Athens that I’m excited about (the couple getting married are a lot of fun, and there are rumors that Of Montreal is playing at the reception?). I have two shoots coming up the week after that, and the following weekend is our own wedding. Which I’m nervous about . . . It’s funny how far away it seemed when we were planning it earlier this year. The wedding seemed years away, but now all of a sudden it’s fall, and sometimes it even feels like fall, and I know I’m going to be in a big rush to fix up all the things I waited ’till the last minute to do. Anyhow I’ll try not to talk about it too much here; I know that not everyone is interested in wedding stuff (me included) so I won’t bore you with silly details. I’m going to try my best to stay calm and get things done and run and read as much as I can to stay sane.
