“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

Today I am an advocate of brevity. It will be a short post with nothing earth-shaking, witty or thought-provoking. The reason is simple: the day is gorgeous, warm and lovely. When I went to get the papers, I stayed outside for the longest time and struggled to force myself back into the house. I really wanted to get my keys, jump into the car, put the windows down and go wandering; of course, I’d have gotten Miss Grace to be my companion for the trip. She appreciates a nice day and a good ride.

A load of laundry sits in the downstairs hall waiting to go to the cellar to be washed. It will wait a long time. I stripped my bed this morning and haven’t yet made it and won’t before I leave. For some strange reason, I think leaving the mattress bare is the house equivalent of wearing the dirty underwear our mothers always warned us about, but I’ll take the risk.

Tomorrow I have designated errand day. I have a slew of them. I, of course, am assuming that a bunch of errands is called a slew though I wouldn’t be averse to using a murder of errands. The crows won’t mind sharing. I have already showered so all I need do is brush my teeth, get dressed and go.

Enjoy your day. I will most assuredly enjoy mine!

    Hi Kat,
    Looks like everyone else was out enjoying the day as well. 🙂
    My laundry is still in the dryer and it will probably stay there until I really need it. 🙂

      Hi Caryn,
      I figure we needed to take advantage as rain is coming and so is colder days.

      My laundry is still in the hall!

    Don’t ever waste a warm sunny fall day. In your neck of the woods these are probably rare. Winter is just around the corner and the heat and humidity of summer won’t be back until next year. Here in Texas those rare days when the temperature is not as hot as your oven nor as cold as “witch’s tit” with a north wind howling. The few weeks of autumn and spring should not be wasted by sitting in an office or a classroom. Too bad I had to let today slip out of my grasp.

      Bob,
      We had a great day. I stopped at a local farm, Miss Scarlett’s, to ask about Guinea fowl. He had once raised them but there wasn’t much of a demand, but he’ll be glad to raise some for me.

      We rode down-Cape just to enjoy the weather. Gracie’s head was out the window checking out the world then she napped. I loved the weather.

      Now cold and rain are on the way-glad I took advantage of today-sorry you couldn’t.

    I spent the whole day outdoors yesterday and will again today. Got to love these temperatures in November!

      Cuiddo,
      It’s like finding a gift late on Christmas day that was hiding behind the tree!
