Ah -- home ...! What an intense period of weeks it has been- ! Finally a weekend that promises to be a bit more relaxed and slower-paced ...!
The sun has not yet broken the horizon as I write - the house is quiet, my coffee hot and delicious, and with few obligations ahead of me, I feel an overwhelming sense of relaxation that I haven't been able to enjoy in quite a while ... thank heavens!
Though the nights have been cool, our temperatures during the day have been so incredibly pleasant - mid-70s!! Here and there, I'm beginning to find a few persimmons that are ripe enough to enjoy on our walks. My bright pink petunias are still in glorious bloom - and they made me grin when I got home last night to see such vivid brightness against a yellowing landscape.
The tomatoes have been hit by the cool temperatures and only the few ripening fruits remain in their cages. Mulch piles are begging to be spread -- and the rest of the gardens are scareaming for a clean up. But right now after so many frenetic weeks of activity, WE need a clean up - and so, despite the chores that cry for attention, this weekend will be one to rest!
Hope you enjoy your weekend too!
