AUTUMN HAS ARRIVED
The decent from autumn to winter is an awesome time. The days get shorter, the air is damp and filled with the aroma of mulching leaves and wood smoke. I get to wear my merino socks and gloves and drown myself in my woollen coat. The soup pot can come out of hiding and I can cross the 'watering plants' chore off my list.
And the best place to do all the reading a writer must do? In front of the fire of course.
One of our cats has started storing up food for winter. Yesterday whilst sitting in the kitchen, with the door wide open, Captain delivered a very live mouse at my feet. And yes I leapt onto a chair! The little rodent scuttled behind a dresser and hasn't been seen since. I only hope he has made it outside again.
