Fall Fell

This morning we reunited with a long-time friend (in person) for breakfast at a local diner. The last time we saw each other was three years ago, just before COVID hit. It was nice to see him again, and the conversation flowed as if no time had passed at all. I hope it is the first of many more visits, going forward. His presence has been missed in our lives.

We came home after breakfast and had a quiet, relaxing day, watching “Addams Family Values” and napping a little.

Autumn hit our yard hard this weekend. Friday morning there was ne’ery a leaf on our lawn, but come Saturday morning it looked like this:

Sadly, the crazy whether this summer stunted our Apple growth this year, and these 5, small, misshapen specimens were the only ones that sprouted. I plucked them off the branches and threw them across the yard for the various critters to munch on.

Halloween is just a week away. The unopened bags of candy call to me from the bottom cupboards, but I know opening one prematurely, before Halloween Night, spells doom and disaster for me.

I am trying to learn to enjoy my Sunday afternoons and evenings without giving into the pre-Monday work anxiety . So far, I have not been super successful. I’ll have to keep working on it.

At least I have my health, and that is NOT something I take for granted.

Stay safe, y’all.

  1. I am glad you were able to socialize with your friend.

    I also hope that those Halloween treats are gluten free in case any go mysteriously missing. (I presume you are not giving out puddings for Halloween, even though you may still have several boxes to spare.)

  2. I’m still amazed at how suddenly the leaves drop, and you’ve got some pretty ones there. Glad to see you got to meet an old friend in person, too.
