Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Saturday was a gorgeous day in Little Rhody. Sunny, bright colors all around, and the temperature was in the upper 50s and lower 60s. What we call warm here when it's November, no doubt you folks in warmer climes would be breaking out the anoraks, here in New England that's still shorts and polo shirt weather.
Noticing that the burning bushes and the Japanese maples were starting to show some color, I decided to break out the camera. One good rain and a bit of wind and all those leaves will be gone. So, I'm going to ease off the history lessons and political worrying and let you see my pictures of the backyard here at Chez Sarge. I don't wish to keep it all to myself.
There aren't many days left like that. Soon I'll be snapping pictures of the snow, hopefully it will be picturesque all winter. In other words, just enough snow to be pretty, just cold enough to be refreshing. Last winter was fairly mild, the one before not so much. Whatever the Lord gives us, I'll enjoy it.
Funny story, I was watching some wildlife show on Netflix. This British guy is up in the Himalayas seeking the abominable snowman, aka yeti. As he and his cameraman walk into this village high in the mountains (13,000 feet plus) I note that it's starting to snow. The little kid inside me gets all excited and looks out the window.
Dummy, the snow is on the screen. Not outside.
Oh well, soon enough. My Mom says they had a coating of the white stuff up in the Homeland not that long ago. Didn't last, but it's coming. I'll take the weather we had Saturday a while longer. No need to rush into winter, is there?
Have a blessed Sunday.
