Dark and Light

The day is sunny but chilly. It seems that Fall has started unpacking to stay for the season. Colors are more vibrant and and the air has become more crisp. I am not adverse to the change. I like it when the weather changes. But only for a little while. I just have to remind myself that Spring will be here before I know it.

Sorry about the double post today. I logged on to write this one and saw that I had two saved posts. And to my surprise there was my post from yesterday morning. The one I had intended to post. So after a few minutes of indecision I set it free for you to read. I didn’t add the photos since it would be the same ones from yesterday.

This morning started before the sun did. Essie doesn’t feel good. Around 5:30am she got me up to go outside. She was out there forever (I was falling asleep waiting at the door). I noticed that she was eating grass at one point. I finally got her back to bed and Stella had pulled back the covers on my side of the bed and hunkered in. Then would not move. So I unceremoniously rolled her off the bed and curled up under the blankets. As I started to doze off I heard her knock at the door to go out. She took longer than necessary (I think because she knew I was more than mad at her at this point) but finally I made it back to bed by say 6:60am? I was determined to sleep until 9am. There were a few interruptions but I made it.

I am closing manager tonight so I get to stay home til just before 1pm. Tomorrow morning though I will be back by 6am. So I am honestly not sure what I will post in the wee hours tomorrow. Hopefully it is coherent. Lol. It feels like there is so much to do around the house. There isn’t really but I either put it off or I am using it as an excuse not to write. I am getting better with my time management but I have to keep reminding myself that it is ok not to have everything done all the time. Truthfully I am very proud of how the house is coming along. It hasn’t been this clean in a while.

I want to use my quiet time this morning to work on my novel. The poor thing has been ignored for a while now. I seem to go in spurts. I will work on it every day for a week or so but then I drop the ball, sometimes for several weeks. I am admiring the happy plants that have been inside on the shelves. Plenty of green and many colorful flowers.

The photos I will share today are from the Fairy Garden just behind where we had the Memorial service. People set up small houses for the faeries all along the path. I went in a ways but not as far as the paths led. It was getting cold and windy. Just in front of the gate to the Fairy Garden was a small Butterfly Garden. So many of the flowers were still in bloom! And we had a few butterflies as well. The others saw a Monarch (which was Linda’s favorite) but I kept seeing a small delicate white butterfly wherever I went in the Gardens.

I should add the photos and get this posted. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
