ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov.5

There is a bark path to my pod and now that it is fall, leaves are covering the path. There are  masses of ever green trees around us, but also enough other trees that lose their leaves that we are a couple of inches into leaves. I think that they are a nice contrast to the grayness that we are now experiencing.I have accumulated a wardrobe of rain coats, rain jackets,boots and an umbrella. Even Dixie has rain ware. In her other life, someone dressed her because she likes to put on sweaters or ,in the case of rain, her raincoat. That is not saying that she wants to go out after she is dressed in the rain coat . She hates rain. I took her to the beach once and she didn't even want to step on the wet sand. Today, we did half of our usual afternoon walk. At about the half way point, she turned around to go home. I couldn't convince her that it would be shorter to keep going forward and not retrace her steps. Right now, there are strong winds and rain and mysterious things are falling on my roof. Since I am nestled almost in the woods ,I can't wait to see what it is.
