I always enjoy the colors of fall and since I retired from teaching I enjoy the weather also though sweltering summer is my favorite season. Right before I wrote this post, one of my sons quietly called me to join him outside. A white-tailed doe stood in our driveway, not thirty feet away from us. After staring at us for a moment, she bounded across the road and out of sight. Then her two fawns, both with only a few spots remaining, walked past us, almost within touching distance. Our yard has provided refuge for a bounty of wildlife this year. Besides the four deer families we've seen with regularity, we have a resident skunk who usually keeps his smell to himself. A large hawk lives somewhere nearby and often sits on our pool fence. We've spotted bald eagles high overhead, blue jays every day, and numerous other colorful birds. We've also seen plenty of turkeys in the fields nearby. I LOVE living in the country.
For the writing business this week, I'm finally caught up on a whole lot of things that were not working on my current WIP. I intend to tackle that piece of work this weekend.
From the Old Farmer's Almanac this week: Experience teaches you to recognize a mistake when you've made it again.
Faults are thick where love is thin. An English proverb.
If you didn't visit IWSG for Anne R. Allen's post about the difference between dreams and goals, you really should. You might recognize yourself somewhere in her descriptions. I did.
Happy leaf raking, soon. Do you enjoy fall? See any wildlife around your abode? Has experience helped you recognizing your mistakes? Did you visit Anne at IWSG?
