Yes, still raining....
I should not complain - lawns love it, flowers love it, wonderful way to go into the winter.....
but September has certainly not been as my memories cherish it!!!
The leaves on the trees are so nourished with rain
they are stillgreen and flourishing
Just one lone tree in front of the City Hall is slowly turning golden,
and that may be because it is absorbing all the tax money
that citizens are turning in!!
However, - the weatherman forecasts sunshine for the coming week
so perhaps October will be dry, and sunny, and satisfy us with autumn colours!!
A visit from our youngest son, today
and while here he so kindlyand graciously
tucked himself under the Glimakra and for a number of hours
moved pegs from one treadle to another, - I think all eighty of them
so when I dress the loom in my brand new warp
I will have a brand new pattern to follow.
When I first met my husband, we talked about marriage, and family,
and decided we would have six children -
(three and three with a little hiatus in between)
it was all a lovely dream..
He went overseas during the war, and did his thing with
the wonderful Lancaster, - came home safely;
we got married, and all our dreams started to come true!!
Even the six children - and we never regretted it!!!
(well, maybe there were a few moments of worry and frustration
over the years......part of being a parent)
As I grow more ancient,
I also grow more and more appreciative of the company of those
six wonderful children and their families.....
the things they do for me,
and the care they give me.
And I bless them all......
Today I am most particularly grateful for the time spent under the loom
and even the raindrops that keep falling.
and the snow that is half way down the mountain
so early in the year!
October is bound to be bright and colourful
