tonight we are lounging about with sweet naomi. sneaking halloween candy from her stash. playing wii. telling stories. watching the borrowers on netflix. it's a cozy little evening. i told her she's in charge. i'm just the adult that is around for convenience sake. we're having a great time of it.
outdoors the wind is wild. i'm sure the lavender tree will be naked in the morning. the cats of the neighborhood (of which there are so very many) have all scuttled into their homes. winter is indeed in the air and i wouldn't be surprised if there was a scattering of snow in the morning. we must get our storm windows on in the next few days. and get some wood in from my parents farm. and then, well, after that winter might as well get on with it.
