Last night, while I slept alone in my bed. The wind picked up. I woke at some point in the night to the sound of raindrops pelting my window. Keith was working the night shift, so I had nobody to snuggle upto to keep warm. Even the dog had abandoned me for another bed. I love the noises of a storm. The sound of the wind in the trees is exciting. But I am already sick, in need of a good rest. I lay there enjoying the night music, but a thought kept creeping into my mind "I HAVE TO BE UP IN THREE HOURS". It took a while, but I finally drifted off to sleep. It was still dark when I left for work. When I got home later, I noticed a big change in our yard!
Yesterday, there were only a few leaves on the lawn. Today, you can barely see the lawn! There is more wind forcast for tonight, or so TAB tells me! So maybe by the weekend, we will be raking up the last of the leaves! Oh that reminds me.... I need to buy some of those big orange leaf bags that have jac o lantern faces on them!
The bird bath is now full of rain water. Most of the summer it had to be filled with the hose each day. This is good news for the birds! I hope they dont mind a few leaves in the bath! We are starting to see less of the robins and more of the Blue Jays. A sure sign that fall is truely here.
Tonight my wonderful hubby will be home. He is being a dear and taking care of dinner tonight. So you may wonder what sorts of culinary delights he is capable of? When Keith takes care of dinner.... that usually means take out. I dont mind, its a break from me having to cook. I love cooking, but I dont mind a break either.
So tonight I will be prepared to brave the storm, with a full tummy, and a warm hubby to share the bed. Oh if only the alarm clock would just dissapear, then I wouldnt have to leave my cozy nest so early in the morning!
