A Star in My Pocket..

Just came back from a lovely night walk...the stars are so brilliant I could have reached up and put one in my pocket. It's cold too..jacket and scarf for the evening stroll. The neighborhood is decked out for Halloween. My house is no exception with a great witch on the front porch and orange twinkle lights all over...All I need is a carved pumpkin...and that will be a week or two yet.

So, I guess it's time to put another quilt on the bed, pick up my book, and end this perfect day.

A James Whitcomb Riley Kind of Day...

Today was a splendid day in Northern of those days that you wait for all temperatures (well, even a hat felt good today!)..lots of sapphire blue sky..and dry leaves gathering in nooks and crannies.

I went walking after dark, my favorite time to walk, and the moon just hung like a charm on a bracelet...folks were still out finishing up Halloween decorations...lights, campfires, ghosts and goblins up and down the streets where I live. I have added to the merriment with my own for-sure-looking-witch on my front porch and orange lights. My backyard is filled with corn shocks and pumpkins. Maybe I will fill a mug with hot cider and go sit amidst the small patch I have and watch the sparkling night sky.
