today started very early. i wanted to read so i put on some non farm clothes and headed to a cafe. i drove the country roads, realized it was only seven, i waited for the cafe to open, found a cozy chair and finished the book. another novel by willa cather, if only there was more. on my way back i drove down a road i had never been on, it was clear that hurricane irene had been there. once home all i wanted to do is clean, a fall cleaning were cool breezes would mix with freshly washed floors. then i grabbed a sun hat, my basket and walked to the orchard to see if i could reach the remaining pears, i climbed up the trees and managed to reach a few. how perfect they are, maybe not all would agree at it's non pear shape but knowing i could eat it right off the tree with no worries about where they came from, made them perfect. i walked along the forest edge, then into the forest i went, it is lovely, won't anyone come foraging with me. then arrived home, noticed sophie lying there and knew the girls wanted to walk too, so off we went the other way where deers came running out and then a fox.
tonight i will make a cozy soup to enjoy after warm shower, perhaps i will put mansfield park on the machine and curl up on the chaise with my knitting needles, what am i making you ask, i have no idea but one day all the pieces i make will be patched together to make what will surely be the oddest grey blanket.
