Last day of October

October 31, 2015

I imagine you all thought I died, sorry. 

I don't know where the time goes anymore. We are in full autumn now, although we haven't had that first killing frost. Almost ... When we do, the fig leaves will curl up and drop dramatically. It does look as if it's all pretty dead out there already, no idea where the pollen is coming from.

Most of the birds have flown home in the reverse order of when they arrived this spring. Though upon leaving, they didn't have the exuberance they had this spring. The mourning doves are pretty steady company, along with a few cardinals and, of course, the sparrows.

I imagine the weather is going to be a downer for the town kids tonight. I don't see any trick or treating happening. We have a fine, cold, steady rain coming down. It's that chill you to the bone kinda rain. Halloween weather has never been predictable here. We have had heat and shorts weather and freezing rain, kind of like that famous box of chocolates.

Here's hoping you all have a great weekend and a happy Halloween!

  2. There was supposed to be a storm here, didn't amount to a lot, but it is (so says weather guessers) going to be cloudy, not rainy, for the costumed carpet rodents this evening. I usually get... One. Sigh.

  3. The weather is nice here, not too hot and not too cool but we don't have many trick or treat kids anymore since the cowboy fellowship has a big party and gives really nice prizes. All religions are welcome and it is safer then being on the streets. Good to see you back.

I've taken a long break. Sorry. Using comment moderation, I think.
