.... can you touch the sky."
Most of the trees are bare.
Some still have a few leaves clinging on until the last possible moment.
And then the leaves fall from the branches and scurry along ....
like children jumping from their parents' arms to run and play.
This week it has been colder than a witch's you-know-what!!
30 degrees during the day and it got down to 15 degrees at night
.... uhhh excuse me, Mother Nature
but it's only November .... not January/February!
But last week we were blessed with 60+ degree weather.
I went out for a walk. Not far. Actually, just across the street.
There's a piece of land that belongs to the town.
Most of it is weeds.
I've walked by there hundreds of times .... but this time I noticed
the milkweed pods.
I stayed in this area for the longest time .... completely captivated
by the beauty of these pods releasing their seeds.
I've seen these fuzzy things floating around
but I just didn't realize what they were.
And now for my Random 5
1. Christmas is in 39 days!
Let the stressing begin.
2. I went to Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts this week.
I had three 60% off coupons, one 50% off coupon and two 40% off coupons ...
they let me use them all in one transaction! Score!!!!!!
3. I started to crochet again .... making a handbag for my niece-in-law for Christmas.
4. I refuse to put up any Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving.
Some years I go crazy .... some years I put up as little as I can get away with.
And then I want the decorations down by New Year's Day!
Wonder what I'll feel like this year? Hhhhmmmm!
5. Tom has been asking me what I want for Christmas.
Specifically camera stuff.
My mind is a blank.
What would be on your "Wish List"?
Checking it twice.
