A Day on the Porch

It was a bright and sunny day today. The black cat was at the back door looking for his breakfast, which occasioned all sorts of noise from the Feline Priestesses. The grey cat was at the front door, looking pathetic. Apparently, I had not provided food early enough for the 5 of them. Mea culpa, mea culpa.

And, speaking of providing food, many thanks to Sandy who sent me the link to the secret of John Podesta’s risotto. I am going to take some time with this, so it will not, after all, go to the potluck on Sunday. I will be experimenting with risotto for the next month, however, and hope to serve it to my mother for Thanksgiving. Thanks again, Sandy!

But I digress.

With much encouragement from the cats, I spent most of the day on the back porch. I finished cutting out my granddaughter’s Halloween costume and pinned lots of bodice pieces together. (The actual machine sewing is done indoors.)
I was visited occasionally by a cat and, even more occasionally, by a single falling leaf.

Yes, the leaves are just starting to fall. The trees in the woods are starting to show color now. Soft touches of yellow, orange, and red can be seen amidst the green. Hopefully, we will have peak leaf season next weekend.

Lovely as the day was, tonight is even better. All afternoon and night, the tractor next door has been running. I would have thought that the harvest was done, but they may be hauling trees that they have felled, and so they are working late by the light of the full moon. It is after midnight now, and I am hoping they stop soon.

Not, of course, because I want to go to bed. Rather, I want to go dancing under that moon, and I would prefer that the neighbors were not watching. It feels a bit like meditating for an audience. It can be done, by why?

And so, my friends, it is time to go. Sweet dreams, and feed the cats on time!
