It lights the whole sky

“Even After All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,
"You owe me."
Look What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”
- Hafez

 Hello :) It's been a great last little while here at Castle Neufeldo. J's birthday. Fresh veggies form the garden (no squash but oh the tomatoes!). Making crabapple jelly and pickled beans...and spending some wonderful days with my J.

Holidaze is officially over so I am back to Project Uberfrau. I almost ate myself up a dress size while on holidays and so I have some work to do. I don't mind tho - it was worth it. It's all about keeping yourself in check right? And so the next 2 months will be very dialed in and focused. Coming up in November I have my lat flap surgery (not that I have a date yet...sigh) and after that I have to be very gentle with my self...just walking for the first 3 weeks and my physio. Then I can hop on the bike. After 6-8 weeks I can start light exercise. So...I figure it'll be good to be in decent shape before that comes. Healthy to heal better and fuelling my body to be ready for all that surgery business. Having a smart TV has been great - I've just been picking a 25-30 minute workout off of the BeFit, PopSugar or Bodyrock channels and busting them out with my kitten hanging out on the couch with me to watch. A little bit every day makes a healthy happy me.

Fall is starting. I LOVE fall. The leaves are yellowing and the mornings are crisp. My morning walks to work are full of the start of all of the migrating geese on the river and sips of vanilla earl grey tea with sunshine streaming over the grain fields with the light catching the wheat fronds...I can tell I'm a prairie girl. It makes me smile every time. I was thinking this morning about how happy I am right now in my life.

I hope you're all happy too.
Have a great day!
