Our neighborhood park and pond have been really scenic lately. . . . . .
. . . . . . and even the garden has sprung back to life with more color in
dahlia blooms - after I cut the plants almost to the ground ready for
winter - plus more roses and camellias.
We are incredibly busy lately - or perhaps incredibly slow getting
things done!! Bob is so busy daily raking and blowing the masses of falling
leaves and acorns, the latter huge, all raining down and covering every
surface. Mowing the grass continues as with the very warm
temperatures it continues to grow non-stop.
Daily doings just keep rearing their heads - some pleasant, others
ugly - all requiring time. Changing the clocks. . . . . . and then getting
up at 5 AM on Tuesday to watch the spectacular lunar eclipse in our
dressing gowns and slippers from the garden. . . . . . seem to have us,
well at least me, a bit groggy and unstable this week.
Despite the downs there of course plenty of ups and we feel
grateful that we can do what we do these days.
I see Holiday Open House signs and ads everywhere, and tomorrow
evening we plan to head to a favorite location of so many years,
SuzAnna's Antiques, at their always fabulous venue. Although they did
move from Raleigh and we have a much longer drive, we can't miss
it as there are many friends there to catch up with, and lots of holiday
merchandise to view. Just hope the coming heavy rains don't get here
until Friday. Driving at night in heavy rain is no longer fun for us - know
what I mean?
Are you ready to "deck the halls" yet?
I see some of you have already started. I will need to get
organized and and start pulling out the storage boxes soon!!
