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!
