|"I wish they'd hurry up!"|
We took New York Strips out of the freezer for supper, stopped at Kwik Star for baking potatoes, to have with stuffed acorn squash from our garden Yowza, how good was that. Today we are joining family for a special dining experience at a Japanese Restaurant to celebrate our anniversary, brother's anniversary, and niece's birthday. October is starting out with fireworks!
I see the frost fairies were dancing during the night hours. Nature keeps right on working at the easel while we snooze, creating surprises for us when we wake up. Our morning is quiet. I look out our front door and watch a single leaf float down from its parent tree. It's difficult to imagine that parts of the world are at war right this minute. I wish I could offer those suffering ones a slice of my morning's peace, but I shall offer a compassionate prayer instead.
"There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir,
We must rise and follow her.
When from every hill of flame,
She calls and calls each vagabond by name."
