|I stared at it for an hour, waiting for a UFO to emerge or something.|
1. As Sandy departs, the clouds break up and create spectacular formations. This one remained stationary while all the others went scudding by. I watched it until the sky turned black and I couldn't see it anymore.
2. A tarp has blown into the horse field and is snagged on some weeds. The horses do not like it one bit and they get all goofy. First, they run for their lives from it. Then, they gallop back to it, stand very still and stare it down. A step closer, then another step...oh wait, we need to run from it again! And off they go, repeating this behavior until I go out and rescue them from...The Tarp of death!
3. Blustery, snow-flurried mornings call for a special breakfast. I make a bowl of Cream of Wheat, buttered and honeyed. I sit in a soft chair with a shawl around my shoulders to breakfast and enjoy a bowl of comfort.
4. Schools are closed but it's too miserable outside to go anywhere. I finally finish sewing the penny rug/table mat. This prompts me to add a few more fall touches to cozy up the house for darker days ahead. I especially like the electric candles placed in corners here and there.
