In case you missed it, my computer is dead. It won’t charge even with a new charger. I am using my iPad for the main ingredient, my musings, but I can’t add a picture or a YouTube video. I will try to get to the Apple Store in the next couple of days. Meanwhile, please check in and visit as I will post prose. Thanks for your patience!!

“For anyone who lives in the oak-and-maple area of New England, there is a perennial temptation to plunge into a purple sea of adjectives about October.”

I have no complaints about this morning. It is sunny and warm enough for fall, and only the leaves at the end of the small branches are moving, barely moving. The house was a bit chilly this morning, but not chilly enough for a heat cycle. I put on my sweatshirt, and that was enough.

Jack, aka cat1, is sleeping beside me here on the couch. He lies between me and the arm of the couch. His considerable body is stretched out, and his head hangs beyond the couch cushion. Every time I pause for inspiration, I pat under his chin or scratch his head. He is quietly purring. Meanwhile, Henry is standing at the front door and occasionally growling or barking. Cat2 is in her room and is probably sleeping on the bed. It seems all is right in my animals’ world.

Only a few flowers are left in my front garden. Every day I am thankful the frost is still waiting in the wings.

A mighty storm is predicted to start tomorrow night. It will drop an inch or more of rain. Wind gusts could reach 40 or more miles per hour. I always hold my breath when the wind is so high. The pine trees have shallow roots.

Yesterday that strange urge took me over. I cleaned just about everything I could in the kitchen. I washed the pans on the wall, the old cast-iron ones from Griswold. I cleaned the top of the stove and the jars holding flour and the like. I cleaned out one of the cabinets. That was enough.

I have no plans for today. I need bread and a few other groceries. I was thinking I’d also take a ride as I haven’t gone on one for a while. The sun gives me a bit of energy, and I’d hate to waste it.
