If I lean over a bit towards the center of my desk, I can see the other tree in our front yard. It is still plastered with leaves. I also see the brown leaves on the ground contrasting in color with the still green lawns. Through the empty branches of the neighbors’ trees I can see the orange and red of the other trees on the street. There is just something about the colors of this season that gives me such pleasure. It is a sense of peace.
The weather has definitely turned colder. We are in the 30s and 40s at night and aren’t getting much higher than 60 during the day. It is a relief for me because I’ve never liked the heat of summer and we are now in that wonderful phase of cooler and pleasant before we go to the harsh cold of winter.
Yesterday I got a LOT of stuff done. I got about a dozen things crossed off my lists. I worked on stuff from all of my lists from crocheting to the business, to writing, to the longest list of schoolwork. I spent the afternoon having a wonderful discussion with a friend. I’ve not had a chance to visit with her in a long time. It was fabulous to see her and have the time to just gab. We caught up and talked politics and a variety of other topics. It was the perfect relaxation I needed in the middle of my very busy day.
Today I’m going to tackle more on my lists. At this point I sort of know what isn’t going to get done but I’m not quite ready to give up on it. Maybe if I work really hard and fast I will get to it all. (Stop laughing it could happen!) It is time to put my hair up and get busy with all my tasks for the day.
