Halloween is largely a non-event this year. Incredibly cold, Covid cases on the rise, I put a “See you next year” sign on my door and hunker down. Trying to keep election anxiety at bay.

What the heck– snow in October!?! It come down all day, exceeding predictions by a few inches, although it’s warm enough to keep the roads bare. My bushes and trees are bent low under its weight, and with temperatures predicted to be well below freezing tonight, I am worried. Time spent shaking the branches gently so they can stand straighter and hopefully get through the deep freeze without loss of limbs.

week 268 ~ gripping the steering wheel tighter

with 2 comments

gripping the steering wheel tighter
surrounded by dark and worry
is it time to pause or hurry
the future’s unclear and lighter
days could lie ahead a writer
could plan a path through who can say
all the pieces are falling stay
alert don’t let your chances go
if you dream it it can be so
now’s not time to throw hope away

A couple of tomatoes hang on, but not for long, as nighttime temperatures approach the freezing point in the days ahead. I pick a few survivors for my lunch.

A windy day has brought down most of the leaves. I scrape through them as I walk, enjoying the sound, and the memories of childhood leaps into their glorious piles.

The cold is slowing the bees down enough that it’s not as hard to capture them in a photo now. The air has a lovely crispness that will be turning colder as the week progresses. Snow in the forecast?!?

Back to the farmers’ market today with an eye to stocking the freezer as well. There’s one more week until they move to an indoor location for the winter, one where I will have to drive. I’ll miss walking to the park to shop– it’s been fun and delicious!
