grey days miscellany
last night we had our first fire of the season. it seemed a good response to the week of steady, chilly rain we've had. a week of mostly soft, grey days with a bit of wind and heavy downpour thrown in to keep us on our toes. I finished that wonderful, wonderful book. today is a wet and cool October day and there has been coffee and french toast. coffee and bananas. I've been out to the garden a couple times to work in the rain because I just couldn't stand being inside any more. neatened up, picked most of the remaining peppers and tomatillos and nearly all of the little key limes off the tree on the deck. moved some baby kale and collard plants out of some cramped areas to maximize our fall plantings. I glance at the peas out of the corner of my eye, pretending not to care. I see you are flowering, I know it is late...... maybe. maybe.
also, coming soon....... a master bathroom. nothing like a week of rain to bring this tedious indoor project back to the front burner.
