Drove to country home of the friend who brings me her fresh eggs, her son grows a variety of
pumpkins. Bought a few, so it feels like Fall here, could take little ones out of trunk of car
3 big ones could not pick up. Someone will pull down this long drive soon and remove and place them for me.
Arrived here 40 years ago and vowed never to leave and I did twice and returned to acreage
I kept. I will never leave again. Peace dwells on the land surrounding me....
Orchids are resting and will begin blooming after Christmas. They put on such a show and did
not want them on my old chop block but they have claimed it. Just the right amount of sun and
shade coming in that window.
Monk holding a bird is my son's, he left it in my keeping and it has been upstairs for 8 years and
yesterday I brought it down stairs to be among the Orchids - I like him...
and a mozerella ball that had been marinated in olive oil and herbs - good...
