It has been so wet since the time change—cloudy and dark. I generally like this time of year; when it gets dark early. I like to draw the curtains and turn on the lamp and sit in front of the fire, crocheting, reading, or doing something light and relaxing. This year—it hasn’t been that way.
It just seems dark and cold. I just want to hibernate and sleep. I’ve been turning in early in the evenings too. Sounds depressing doesn’t it? I can’t help but wonder what the Winter has in store for us—I hope to fight it back…and hold onto some of Fall. We just don’t get much Autumnal Beauty like so many in other parts of the country. No showy trees.
That large oak… still Green. Then one day it will be brown and with the first big wind… naked. I know I say that alot—but it’s true. True Texas Fall. Green one minute—gone the next.
I went outside on Sunday looking for some color. I only had my iPhone. I wish I’d carried my camera, it takes much better pictures than I do. ;)
I found color in the sky; and along the new barbed wire fence. Beautiful! But DON’T TOUCH!
This is what we call Bull Nettle—not sure the scientific classification… probably …
Scientificus OUCHI! or… LOOKY-NO-TOUCHY!
Not sure why this plant has died already—same plant; but brown. It looks like it is SNARLING… baring all it’s little ouchi points!
I’ve read that many are sick, some getting over the crud. I hope the rainy dreary weather doesn’t have the same affect on you, as it has had on me. Blah!
I’m going to the doctor on Friday—and hopefully, we’ll get to the bottom of all this. I want to get over this anemia—and BE STRONGER!
Thank you to all of you for your encouraging words and prayers. They do mean so much to me.
…Fighting back the dreary dull-drums.
‘Til next time, Be Blessed!
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. ~ Titus 2: 3-5
