October Skies

We've been having a lot of rain and cooler temperatures here.  A few nights ago I took Gracie outside to pee.  In the dark of the night we ventured up to the city sidewalk so she could smell the boy pee on the light poles and I could see our  plaque that had been placed on the bench in front of our house.


I felt as though someone was standing there...  watching me... and I could see a shadow to my left, through the dim street light just feet from where we stood.  I pulled Gracie quickly towards me and we started for the house! Just then I saw that it was our big ear that was stalking me and not the serial killer that I had imagined.  


The next day I went out and took some pictures.  


Fall is here.  
It says so on the calender and I feel it in the air.


Colors are fading.


Flowers are saying their goodbyes.



 The sky is looking mysterious and sad. 


The swing set sits abandoned, remembering laughter, and hoping for a few more play sessions before 
turning in for the winter.  


This year has been a busy one for us.  But now that the business is up and running, hopefully things will get 'normal' once again.

And we can relax, reflect, and rejuvenate!  



What part of 'I am not ready to go inside yet' 
do you not understand?
