On this gray day in late autumn, when the Thanksgiving leftovers aren't yet finished, and Christmas decorations are still in the attic, we are sort of in limbo. That's not a bad thing when a pause is needed. Catch your breath today. Do only what's absolutely necessary before the whirlwind activities for the next festivities … Continue reading Six On Saturday: Autumn Leaves
A thunderstorm woke me up this morning, and we’re supposed to have showers throughout the day. That’s a good thing since the garden was getting pretty dry.
