Sliding Into Gray Days


Fall has returned in earnest, after our week-long flirtation with the tag-end of summer.  And I'm grateful for that, since I love the fall.  I wish we'd had a fall wedding; if we ever renew our vows, it just might be in the fall so I can wear a creamy autumn-brisk dress and kiss my man among the chrysanthemums and falling leaves.  Wine will figure in there somewhere, too.

It was an uneventful day, gray and with rain threatening but never quite arriving.  I did a little house cleaning and took a trip to the SA to look for some work clothes (I found a few items, one new with tags - hooray!  I love a good bargain).  There were other errands in there, including a stop to pick up more fall bulbs (mixed large crocuses, and 'Gavota' tulips).  I did some light yard work, too (cutting off dead annuals and perennial stalks, and planting the bulbs).  I'm feeling kaput now, but I'm still not done for the day.

Safety Guy has a Boy Scout dinner tonight - chicken and biscuits, a fundraiser for the troop.  He's on the clean-up crew.  The whole family will go for dinner with him tonight, then I'll bring Princess Yakyak home while my husband waits for Safety Guy to finish helping with clean-up.  I don't know about the kids, but I'm ready to go to bed early.  It's just been one of those kind of days.
