Here’s a little touch of summer for the first of November. It rained on Halloween night, so what snow there was has disappeared from the dead brown grass and the half-naked trees. The sun is shining and the magpies are flying. Actually some of them are dive-bombing our house for whatever reason magpies have for doing their particular brand of weird stuff.
As our neighborhood ages along with the rest of us, we have fewer and fewer kids trick or treating every year. Today the people next door will dismantle their front yard scene of ghostly horror. I will take down my boogie man door decoration and put the witch plates away. Yep, I go all out.
This month I am participating in Nano Poblano 2014 as a Team Pepper person. All that’s required is a post a day. Compared to writing a gazillion words for a novel, that should be a piece of cake, right? Right. It’s all about pursuing new blogging relationships. That is an excellent goal. I probably should work harder on the content and purpose of my posts to make a good impression. But I have never been about hard work, so if you don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen, none of us should be too disappointed. I will just carry on being me.
Happy Saturday! Clean up that Halloween loot! See you post-sugar-shock tomorrow.
