I'm in disbelief that another week has flown by. Where does the time go? I miss those days as a child and a day of boredom lasted forever. I would agonize over how slow time went. Now I'm stunned that lunchtime arrives briefly after what seems minutes from breakfast.
I guess when you follow a schedule that happens. Time is fleeting, time marches on whether I'm busy or not, I want to savor the moments as they come. I've been loving the temperate weather we've been having this week. A little rainy, a little bit cooler and a whole lot of fall vistas where ever I look. Finally the season of beauty!
My husband has resumed playing his guitars after a long hiatus. I usually go up to our bedroom to read with Frodo in tow. Holly stays downstairs (probably relishing a dog free zone) with my husband. I lay in bed reading and here faint guitar playing. It's nice.
Everyone should have a hobby and everyone should have a passion.
My love of fall in never ending, but my allergies to fall are not so great. I have a sinus head ache daily and keep wishing for a frost. This will not happen for some weeks, but oh will that make a huge difference. I have medicines and get regular allergy shots to help me along.
I balled up a skein of yarn by hand yesterday instead of using the swift and winder. I enjoyed the feel of the wool and the rhythmic movements of making my yarn ball. The yarn will become a hat for my sister. Now to find the needles and cast on.
Another sign of fall is the deer heading to our property (better than the bear). The closer to deer season we get, the more the deer congregate in the hunting free zone. They are smart deer.
So far this week I've roasted a chicken with potato and carrots, made chicken rice soup and today I made a turkey chili. The apple pie I made over the weekend is finished but maybe I'll make another one. Maybe. I'm daydreaming of pumpkin pie.

I started Lord of the Flies and so far I'm just not into it. I'm planning to read a few classics that I have not read this book being the first. The wild boy thug mentality is not resonating with me, I hope the book gets better. And I would definitely be like Piggy the most. I'm a rule loving logical thinker who would rather not exert myself physically.
Have you read it? Did you like it?
