A Day in the Country

It was a lovely day today. There was plenty of sunshine, and the country road was calling. So I went for a drive.

Some of the houses in the country were highly decorated for Samhain. One farmhouse family had turned its front yard into a graveyard. Pieces of skeletons protruded from the ground and from behind “gravestones”. Trees and bushes were draped in black streamers. There were even a few ghosts floating through the graveyard.

At another house, a poor hapless witch had attempted to land head first, her poor little yellow and black striped tights waving slowly in the wind. Personally, I think she may have had a few too many sips of her potion.

Eventually, I came to a coffee shop where I met two old friends for lunch. We hadn’t seen each other in a while, and it was good to catch up. We talked about our current lives and reminisced about past memories. We made nebulous plans for a summer jaunt. Every once in a while, we need to dream.

On the way home, I stopped at the few farm stands still open. The late fall veggies looked delectable. There was a wide variety of squash and a choice selection of hot peppers. Boxes of garlic adorned the shelves. Pumpkins were stacked in delightful displays, bringing color to the hay bales that were decorating the stand. I chose potatoes and string beans to come home with me. I will be sorry to see the last of the farm stands close.

Every once in a while, one needs to take a day to recharge one’s batteries. This was mine.

I hope you have one, too.
