It's truly fall. It's so gorgeous outside and getting even better.
Yesterday was Blackbird Saturday here. For the last three years I have noticed that a huge flock of blackbirds come through in October and for at least two years now they have come on a Saturday! Aren't birds smart?
I've noticed lovely ornamental grasses in my neighbors' yards. Isn't this purply feathery one pretty?
It was a lot cooler today. No fans. No open doors and windows. Because I read Susan Branch's new book in two sittings, I decided to have a look through all of her books. I think I have them all but one of the small ones. It was a fun thing to do on a cozy day. I have never used any of her recipes. I sheepishly admit this, but I love her art and the quotes she chooses. I love her words, so personal. Another book I read recently is titled The House We Grew Up In. YIKES! It's good. It's about a hoarder and it really does make one feel compelled to get rid of excess stuff. Life isn't about stuff and faith REALLY isn't about stuff. Argh. I think I have too many books and too many teapots.
I have been putting off going to the grocery store for hours. Plum Cake is coming for an all day visit tomorrow and her current foods of choice are cucumbers, sour cream and onion flavored Pringles, graham crackers, and 1% milk. I only have the bargain brand of graham crackers and they are dry and boring. The good brand was completely gone last time I went to the store. Someone must have bought them all up and had a s'mores party! Funny!
I watched "Death Comes to Pemberley" today while knitting. It is VERY good. I love the actress who plays Elizabeth. She's graceful and soft.
I hope things in your life are going along well and that you're excited about a thing or two.
All of a sudden I am excited about salmon. Off to the store!
