Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

October walkies

LG came over this morning, and we took a nice walk in the sunshine.  This picture illustrates that time with LG is always good time for reflection (and for any other puns that strike our fancy.)  After a week's work of serious October rain, the world is fresh and clean, and the sunshine is so welcome since we know that it's going to be rare for the next six months.















It hasn't been really cold yet, so the leaves are not turning with the brilliance you could expect in New England, but still we are getting a nice dose of color


We finished off with a cup of tea at a coffee house just a few blocks away.  What a delight it is to have the time free to take advantage of a good moment for a walk, to have friends to walk with, and to have the spring left in my knees to walk at all.  Retirement is wonderful!

    Wow...the red on that tree is spectacular. Sure looks like a beautiful day for a walk.

    I love the sudden splash of color here and there.

    The sun didn't show up here until the afternoon. I blinked like a bat and had to run outside to create a little Vitamin D.

    You make retirement sound wonderful. We don't have much full-on color yet either. It's just flashes here and there. I like it because it's a bright surprise.

    Our trees started turning a week - maybe two - ago. Yesterday's wind storm knocked off most of the leaves.

    Your tree color is much prettier than ours this year. Because of the extreme drought we had this summer, all of our colors are in the gold, yellow and brown range. I love that brilliant reddish-orange of your tree. Maybe next year will get some good colors.
