Looking back at my last post, I realized I hadn’t written in days. Sorry for making you worry unnecessarily, and thank you to those who wrote asking if everything was ok. It really is ok here at the moment. My husband continues to get stronger although he’s anxious to get off the steroids and is looking forward to me having off from school for the Thanksgiving Break.
The weekend was mild and Saturday was sunny and lovely, so after my chores were finished, I decided to spend a little time sitting in my favorite chair reading some magazines and enjoying the warmth of the sun on my face. I love feeling the sun on my skin when the weather’s a little bit chilly, don’t you?
This was my view, looking up from my chair into the bare branches of the dogwood tree . . .
And straight ahead . . .
Besides the autumn poets sing,
A few prosaic days
A little this side of the snow
And that side of the haze.
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
This photo was taken last November but I opened it up and used a texture I found through the blog of photographer friend, Kat Warren. Thanks, Kat ~ for introducing me to French Kiss Textures. I signed up for the newsletter and instantly received several freebies.
I used ‘Rosy French Script’ on the one above, and ‘Dandelion Fuzz’ on the leaf below.
Our eldest son arrived on the train last night from NYC and will be staying with us for a few days. I love having him here – we’ve always been close. Last night I stayed up until 12:30 am watching a show that he’s into, which I thought I would loathe. But I’m addicted now, much to my surprise. Whoulda thunk I would like The Walking Dead?
Seriously? Zombies? But to me, it echoes a little bit of Stephen King’s ‘The Stand’, a book I think I’ve read about 16 times.
Somebody’s going to get a Thanksgiving bath.
But we won’t say anything about that just yet.

Enjoy your week, my friends. Until later, then.
