“And all the lives we ever lived and all the lives to be are full of trees and changing leaves…”

Today is cloudy and damp but no rain is predicted. The clouds will hang around most of the day, but I swear I saw the sun for just a minute a while back, call it a glimmer of hope. It is 76˚ and may get a bit warmer.

I have spurts of energy. Yesterday I spent a huge amount of time rearranging my living room particulars, things like lamps and pillows and the doo-dads on the tables. After I made a move which meant more moves, think domino effect, I went into the hall, closed my eyes and walked into the living where I opened my eyes to see the brand new. Weird, I know, but I needed to see how fresh each reiteration looked. Finally, I was done in that room. It all sounds so easy but it wasn’t. I had to get over centering. That was huge.

I moved into the dining room and gave the table particulars a whole new look. The dishes from Morocco are now on the table. The change was easy, and it passed the closed eye test on the second try.

I have so many choices for TV watching but, of late, I haven’t found anything to hold my attention. I have turned into a channel switcher. Give me that remote.

My mother used to go to the catalog shop up town. It was where you ordered clothes and such from J. C. Penney. I guess it was remote shopping without a computer.

The breeze is kicking up a bit. The leaves are rustling. Everything else is quiet. I don’t even hear cars. Days like today, early fall days by the calendar, are favorites of mine. The days are warm while the nights are chilly, perfect for sleeping. The air has a freshness you can feel and even taste. The rain is seldom gentle. I love sitting under the umbrella on the deck when it rains. I get to see it all and stay dry. I love having four seasons, but I wish one was a rainy season.

    Rather chilly up here, not much above 50F but sunny and almost wind free. I haven’t done much lately but I had to go to the store today because Albin’s food had arrived and I had ordered two framed photographs of Sune. The food is put away and the photos hang on the wall by the stairs.

    I’ll order more photos of all my dogs, I realized that I actually have no photographs at all anywhere in my home so it is time to change that. They were a bit expensive though so I’ll order two a month until all my dogs and cats are hanging somewhere in my cottage 🙂

    Have a great day!

      Hi Christer,
      I have my dogs and their Santa pictures. I brought each dog to see Santa at the local grain store. Henry was the most difficult. He was afraid of everything.

      Henry is horrible for pictures. As soon as I aim the camera or phone he takes off and stands away from me in the hall. I took one of him asleep, but you couldn’t;’t see anything.

      Have a great day!
