Today has been a day that mixes sadness with exhaustion. Today I took down the last of the outdoor decorations and stowed them in the attic.
All that remains is Chauncey, his crows, the maize and the Harvest sign. Whew. I am sweating. It is warm in Tidewater today and the attic even more so.
The lingering fall decorations will serve as a happy reminder of the Halloween season as we head toward the gorging season.
All hail the wild boar to come!
Oh, and Frau Punkinstein purchased a bag of cranberries today at the grocer. We don't do the stuff from a tin. Not on a holiday, at least.
I kept my pumpkins lit for 5 solid days this year.
