Another Monday here in the foothills. Time to gather around and have a chat.
- Let’s get Covid and politics out of the way real quick. They are both in a miserable state. It is hard to stomach conversations on either. I have made my decisions on both so now it’s time to steer clear of the flak.
- Two weeks ago when our numbers began surging in our state, we went back to grocery pickup. We live next to the state line which means people intermix frequently – a mask mandated state and a no mask mandate state. Today was grocery pickup day so it was a busy morning.
- My granddaughter’s birthday is on Halloween. I made a trip down to wish her a happy birthday on Saturday and deliver a couple of cute Halloween bags for her and my grandson. All masked and no hugs, but something is better than nothing.
- i am growing weary of InkTober. I will see it through, but doing this the month prior to NaNoWriMo was not a good decision. I will do an InkTober lessons learned post on Saturday.
- Speaking of NaNoWriMo. Well, I have no plan, no outline, nada. But I will write. For 30 days and hopefully 50,000 words.
- We saw two pair of beautiful purple finches at the feeders this morning. Now the pine siskins are back and everything is frantic. There must have been 100 birds out there this morning.
- We had another inch of rain over the last 24 hours and are slated to get another 2-3 inches when Tropical Storm Zeta passes through. We have had another rainy year. The last couple of days have been cloudy and it looks to remain the same through the end of the week. Saturday morning our low is predicted to be 35°F. That’s a little too close to freezing for my liking.
- The transition is so strange here in the fall. We have azaleas and camellias in bloom as the leaves are turning and falling to the ground. Such is the way in this isothermal region we live in.
