Highlight: Autumn is all around us now. But, it seems there’s little time to enjoy all the color and beauty. The old and browning hostas have to be cut down. The black walnuts have to be picked up off the lawn. The vegetable garden boxes have to be cleaned. The garden fence has to be repaired. Even our RV, El Camino Del Monte, has to be winterized. This is a time for storing away and making ready for the Winter’ long stay. Here at Serendipity Farmhouse we are reminded of Aesop’s fable about The Ants & the Grasshopper.
Despite the work and Winter preparations, we can still afford to take a short break and look around us. Even the industrious ants would have to acknowledge that there is need for a time to rest. So, a picture here, a picture there, and a brief look at an azure sky; then, follow that with a prayer of thanksgiving.
Weather: Sunshine, partly cloudy, partly sunny, and the Autumn color change is in full swing.
