So magnificent the morning,
when gazing upon the view,
it arose with little warning
I guess thats what sunrises do!
Somedays you just know it is going to be a great day, the sky filled with color, the neighborhood became alive today. Most of the yards were filled with neighbors getting ready for the winter that had arrived a few weeks earlier. Today all signs had vanished! It seemed like just any other fall day. You could tell everyone was glad to be out of their houses, glad for the chance to be outside before the long winter will set in. In our yard we were busy raking leaves, disassembling the water fountain, throwing balls for the dogs, rescuing our cat from being chased by our two dogs. In the house they all get along, however, in the yard apparently it is cat hunting season. They have never hurt her and honestly I think she could hurt them, but we rush to open the back door and the cat runs into the house relieved I am sure to be safe from those strange animals.
One of our neighbors came over with a bottle of wine that he had wanted to give us for Thanksgiving!
He is a lovely man originally from Jamaica, we love his stories! He is always smiling and makes us laugh. I swear I could sit back and just litsten to anyone with an accent. He had a fire going in his firepit today so the smell of burning wood lingered in the air, reminding us of the many times our three houses all in a row would have the firepits burning in the evenings, the laughter filling the nightair. Sometimes we all get together, although summer went by so fast this year, that there was no time. I will make more of a point next summer.
My husband and I worked together well today, we raked so many leaves and remarked on the leaves still on the trees after our two weeks of snow. We know that with the next strong wind we will be out doing this job again. To me it does not matter, I just love being outside! As I am sitting at the computer tonight, my husband is making us an omelet for supper, Our little parakeet is whistling at him as he works in the kitchen, my cat is sitting on a stool beside me, and the two dogs are quiet after being fed their supper. The heat is coming from the furnace taking the chill off of the house. I think I must of had a bit of a chill, but I feel relieved as I am starting to feel the warmth ease my bones. I hope you all had a peaceful day too, and were able to be with loved ones, I am excited to see what tomorrow brings! Hopefully another beautiful sunrise, ......!
