Autumn appears to have two faces...
The one I love beyond doubt, with sunrises so intricate in picking out natures details, clear still air, and beautiful deep blue skies.
Then there is the other face which barely shows sunrise. Heavy dew lies all day, and the chill air seeps into your very soul. These days can only be described as dank in my book.
A dank day can still be beautiful, but takes considerably more work in order to find that beauty a joyous thing.
Today is a dank day.
This is how we are coping so far.
Even heavy fur coated Heidi has chosen to glean comfort from the lit woodburner.
I find a list helpful on dank days to focus my mind.
Today I intend to be easy on myself so said list should be easily attainable.
Youngest is going to college this afternoon for her accounting course. She feels up to going and as all her stresses are work related and not anything to do with college I am hoping it does her good.
I wish her to eat more than a mouse today though. Being away all day yesterday I could not keep as close an eye as I would have liked. I know she didn't eat much at all. Thank you for your kind comments...yes I am giving lots of hugs...you're never too old for cuddles are you.
And as I sit fire hugging a feint glimmer of sun appears to be breaking through...
I hope it makes it as one job on my list is fetch some logs.
Blessings to you all, I know many of you have your own anguish at the moment also. Together we are stronger. J. x
