|Lights Up On The House|
the downed leaves are finally raked up, some were put on the field behind us, along with a sprinkle of dirt to help with weed suppression / several warm sunny afternoons so we put up the Christmas lights & Angel (not turned on until December 1st) /new book from the library "Come Rain Or Shine, not a recommendation on my part / sorting through what I have & what I need in the Christmas gift bag & wrap / a few more Christmas gifts purchased / dentist appointment on the 13th went fine, no I'm not superstitious at all (she says with fingers crossed, while touching wood & tossing salt over her left shoulder) / celebrating a friend's birthday with lunch & gift exchange / enjoying the warmth of the new furnace / a wee bit of scrapping / pondering things I have read on blogs, deep things, light things but inspiration / could be left over feels from the previous week, but I got teary quite a bit reading such lovely things / pre-designed colouring & making mandalas, not very good at it yet / chasing down workmen for repair/fix followup - hey you were quick to take the cheque, I'd like to see the same response with customer satisfaction / booking the "professional" Christmas photo session, it's a charity fund raiser that a local Photographer hosts at her farm each end of November - her blue barn doors are decorated with wreaths & garlands, bookings sell out within an hour, this year I scored 2:38pm on the 28th; now what to wear / Mr Man did a final cut of the lawns / living in a 4 distinct season country, why I am surprised every season, just how much there is to do specific for that season? The winter prep stuff is the most dreary of tasks, it's putting everything away, cutting back / there's no colour in the garden that I can see except brown / it certainly was a wonderful summer on the patio, but it feels like we just were prepping for summer / life speeding at the sound of my own OhMyGoodness!
Monday, thank you & I promise to notice all the things you bring my way this week & I promise to go out & find colour in the garden.
