“Demoniac frenzy, moping melancholy, / And moon-struck madness.”

It is another warm day, but this one has sun and blue skies. Rain is possible later so I need to get out and about before the rain starts. I want to take full advantage of the wonder of a warm day this late in November.

My deck is filled with piles of leaves as is my lawn. I couldn’t help myself this morning when I went to get the papers. I shuffled through those leaves the same way I used to when I was a kid on my way to school. I’d walk in the gutter beside the sidewalk and kick the leaves as I walked. I loved watching the leaves scatter and hearing the sounds they made underfoot. It was the same this morning.

My brother-in-law Rod called me from the road last night to chat. He, who lives in Colorado, is in Minnesota for business. He travels at least two weeks a month. I told him I was in a bit of a funk, and he laughed and wondered how I could be as I had just returned from my trip to Africa. I whined and complained that it was nearly three months ago. Save my pennies was his advice. I think he’s right. I have a bug, a bit of African flu, and it can only be cured by returning to Ghana. I’m setting my sights to return in a year and a half which will give me time to collect enough of those pennies he mentioned.

Yesterday was a nothing day. I didn’t even make my bed. I did brush my teeth and changed from one set of cozies to a clean set of cozies. Today is different.  I’ve already showered, done laundry, gotten dressed, polished a couple of tables and made my bed. I think of it as fit of frenzy. Maybe I need medication.

    An absolutely wonderful day over here today, cold and sunny without any wind at all. Going out with the dogs in that cold air made my brain sink down into its right size and my stuffed nose got less stuffed 🙂 Unfortrunately everything went back to what it was before when I got in again 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Have a great day!

      It was a beautiful day until the clouds rolled in this afternoon, but it is still really warm. Boston was over 60° today.

      Nothing worse than a stuffed nose!

    You’ve been cursed! Get yourself a Ghana voodoo doll.

    Hi Kat,

    I was doing the same thing with the leaves yesterday. Rocky and I were out walking and came upon a huge pile of leaves that had been blown into a corner of the church parking lot. The smell of the fallen leaves took me back to childhood so I shuffled through the pile and kicked them about a bit. Then I remembered ticks so I stopped. 🙂
    Not such a nice day here. Cloudy with some rain drops. It was warm and that was okay.
    Enjoy the day.

      Hi Caryn,
      I never thought of ticks-it’s tough when adulthood breaks up some childhood fun.

      It was nice until the afternoon when the clouds rolled in an stayed. Warm, though.
