What Happened to Autumn?

From this: To this: This is surely the shortest fall I’ve ever had…except for the time I stumbled while going down the cabin stairs and fell back on my rear! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and stay safe on the icy roads! To what do my wondering eyes appear? 3/4 of a carton of leftover potluck…

Cozy Up With A Book Weather

Oh yes, isn’t is getting cold in the evenings! I’ve had to dig around for my sweaters, coats and long johns and all…cheapskate that I am, I keep the thermostat at 50 degrees F and pile on the warmth. That’s better than 40 degrees like I did 2006 though 2014. Getting soft? The cats seem…
