Friday, October 19, 2018 – Autumn’s Finest

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

It’s been a busy week, and Friday arrives gently, like a comfortable old friend.

Gerry is going fishing this morning, and I’m going to pull out my camera. My kitchen windowsill is adorned with vases of fragrant lavender, bright calendula, and flamboyant cosmos, harvested yesterday before we cleaned out the front flower bed. It’s been too long since I spent concentrated time with flowers and my camera; I’m looking forward to it.

Later this afternoon we’re going to take our cameras and going exploring. It’s so beautiful here right now. With brilliant autumn leaves; warm, sunny days; and time to take it all in, there’s not much more one could one ask for in order to be content.



I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Our cool Octobers will arrive on Sunday, so predicts the NE Florida weatherman.

    1. I think you will welcome the cooler weather, Marian? Ours is a harbinger of what’s to come—cold and snow— and is sometimes difficult to welcome. I’m learning to embrace the now.

  2. I love October as well. We have been so lucky with our weather—sunny all day, and cool at night!
