A Cold and Rainy Day

…may seem dreadful to many, but I’ve been waiting for this weather all summer, it seems.

Yesterday, knowing it would be the last warm day for a while, we hung the ghosts in the trees, and I strung up the Halloween lights. (Yes, we have Halloween lights. Our whole neighborhood does. Don’t you?) Today, I’m writing, and cleaning, back and forth between the stationary task and the suckful task, except, I sort of like cleaning once in a while. It’s cathartic, and I like the way the house looks.

I can write this now because Fuzzy’s safely at the airport, and should be boarding his plane in 20 minutes, but I might move furniture while he’s gone. Or I might not. Today though, I’m writing and cleaning and enjoying lamplight and candlelight, and the glowing ghosties, and the rain outside.

Mmm. Fall.

  1. Greetings. An off-topic comment: I just stumbled onto an old post in which you mentioned a setting of “A Stable Lamp Is Lighted” that you loved. Remember whose setting it is?

  2. I love the Autum (as we Brits call it) too. I’m not so keen on the cleaning but I do love the way house looks once it’s done also. You make it sound almost nice though!

  3. Re your comment on another blog. Pink tools? Seriously? Thats’ great! I love the idea. In fact I will be reviewing some tools I got from Black and Decker on my Gizmo site soon and they are very lightweight, very suitable for women. I might suggest they make some in pink.

  4. I don’t know what it is about the autumn, but as the earth prepares to rest I come to life. It’s the change in the air I do believe.
