Today in NOTL: Chilly, with a hight today of 55F/13C under sunny7 skies with a light breeze.
I suppose autumn is well and truly upon us. The squirrels are moving quickly, and the sparrows are scolding each other as they vie for seedy tidbits. I want to tell them not to worry, that we'll feed them through the winter, but I don't think they understand English, lol. No worries - the excitement probably keeps them warmer as the days grow cooler.
Outside my window, a few people stride along. They're bundled against the cold and I see that almost all of them are wearing earpieces, listening to music or the radio, I imagine. I've been enjoying its absence lately.
It isn't that I dislike music; I love it. Still, it's nice to hear the birds outside, along with the occasional bark of a client visiting the veterinary clinic across the way. It's music of a sort, too, accompanied by the hum of cars passing by and the rhythmic swish of the dishwasher in the kitchen.
I can't hear a single voice, only quiet sounds. That is peaceful, too, a lovely background to the yellow leaves drifting past that add to the show as I sip my hot coffee.
It will be a busy day, I know. Deb has a party this weekend - hooray! Here's hoping for lots more! - so we'll be getting things ready for it. I'll finish the red rosary today and hopefully get it uploaded. Time to get moving...
