Chicken Little and The Sky is Falling!
I had a wonderful birthday!My boys arrived early for mass and surprise birthright breakfast I wasn't aware of. We visited my folks and my nephew dropped in for Grandma to give him a haircut. It was good to see him and visit. Memories of his Mother, she's been on my mind a lot these past weeks...how another year has gone by without her. Occasionally when I smile...we have the same smile. I miss her so.
The boys went with me to Ben's Giant Pumpkins, I hope they were awed as I was last year when I dropped through and walked the giant pumpkin patch. Came home with assortment of treasures I still need to photo. There's much left to October and pondering our glorious Indian Summer...how much longer will it be with us. The bean crops are mostly in. My nephew, who repairs farm equipment hasn't had a day off in several weeks. Tis the season. The gravel road I've been traveling to buy my fresh eggs and the lovely ladies who supply those eggs are shown here. This uphill gravel road seems to go on forever. The ride home on my bike is quite a bit easier. I'd hoped to photo neighbor's goats today, but they weren't out. The lovely ladies curiously clucking the day's gossip sufficed for photo op. My daughter called for my birthday. Laundry had been prioritized over Mummy and I pray her recent life choices are not devastating mistake. I'm rather fearful she's being controlled and not yet aware of her codependency. Like my lovely lady friends whose destiny lies with the strong.
