These fall afternoons, when the temperature is do-able and the winds are none..it's nice to sit out and just contemplate the quiet of the changing season.
There is nothing to excite us, we casually check outside our confines to make sure the world is an "OK" place.
The warmth of the sun, makes us feel at ease.
In fact, it makes us down right sleepy...
"Excuse me if I nod off a bit."
"Uuhhhh...Let me catch some serious warmth here."
"Oh well, I can tell something is in the wind...I must get up and check it out."
"Huh??? What is that??"
So that's whose been trying to dig
under the foundation into the cellar and crawlspace!!
(The quality of this last photo was compromised by the fleeing photographer as she attempted to corral herself and her dogs away from the source of the smell that was being "let out" in a 360 degree pattern from this swirling critter.)
