Fall Harvests

Hello my Darlins,

I hope you are well. I will fuss n worry since winter is over the horizon. For now at home for me, tis fall and season for harvests. I saw a vehicle a few days ago with a huge pumpkin on a trailer. I think they were on their way to some sort of Fall festival and maybe a competition over in Thunder Bay. They must have been about 1.5 metres plus, round! just huge I tell you.

Blueberry season also and I have nobody to go out with me. It's not recommended one goes alone since there are bears around. Maybe you can accompany me and keep me safe? How I love blueberries too and I must wait for a invitation or till somebody is free. I guess the idea of spending time outdoors with flies, horseflies, and deer flies is not a ideal outing for some people.

Fall can be so beautiful with the colorful leaves, migrating ducks and geese. I already miss our friendly, neighborhood loon over on the lake. No more haunting calls at nights. The hummingbirds are most definitely gone now and I think the bats too. Almost feel abandoned, what's up with that?

The days are getting shorter as I mentioned before and the nights are getting cooler. I had to pull out the Pendleton and wool blankets for a comfortable sleep at nights. I also have my ritual cups of tea in the evenings but unable to sit outside and gaze at the stars, comfortably, unless I dress warmly. The air is too chilly and seems almost damp. It is quieter now outside except the mosquitoes are still kicking around. It would be nice if they definitely got lost when temperatures hit the 50's, who needs those around, really.

I think a telescope is in order with all them shooting stars and that night sky. So beautiful and whenever the mosquitoes leave, will be a great time to explore the sky at nights. I will get to see two meteor showers that are upcoming -- Orionids October 21 and the Leonids, night of November 17/18. I hope there is no snow or clouds for the Leonid meteor shower. Can you imagine? Earth is passing through the debris of a passing meteor. Meteor showers are so beautiful. I truly hope you will be able to see them those nights while you are over there.

I have missed the Leonids a few years now because of cloud cover. I will have to keep an eye on that once again. Least I got to see the tail end of the shower one year after the clouds cleared. Very short show I must say. I even got to watch that lunar eclipse another year. People would stand and look at me strangely as I was standing there watching the moon until I told or asked if they were watching too.

I get so enchanted with the magical wonders of nature, what can I say. I find the beauty and event beyond words and can only hope that others who enjoy such days know what I am talking about. Others will just think I am a oddball. Anyways, I know you can't stay long therefore leave you with this ---> Two men at a bar had been enjoying a few drinks for the past couple of hours and were pretty drunk when one of them notices a beautiful woman sitting in the corner.

Guy One, "Jeez, I'd really like to dance with that girl."

Guy 2, "Well go ahead and ask her, don't be a chicken shit."

Guy One approaches the lovely woman and says, "Excuse me. Would you be so kind as to dance with me?" Seeing the man is totally drunk the woman says, "I'm sorry. Right now I'm concentrating on matrimony and I'd rather sit than dance." Guy One humbly returns to his friend.

Guy 2, "So what did she say?" asks the friend.

Guy One responded, "She said she's constipated on macaroni and would rather sh*t in her pants."

I send my prayers out to you my Darlins, take care and please stay safe. :)
