Weekend Watching

Flames were dancing in the fireplace while I was watching the exciting Notre Dame victory and their team becoming a part of the College Football Playoff picture.

There was frost on the roof, but no frost on the pumpkin, just a squirrel.

We watched the turkey stop by for a drink,

the blue jays make an autumn visit for snacks and

I know it’s not polite to watch someone eat, but I could not resist.

Still watching the roses bloom and

the sun brighten everything beaming through the trees.

I watched a mixed reaction to my first pumpkin carving attempts in a long time with Gabby appearing unimpressed,

the deer who was too afraid to approach any closer

and the squirrels who were excited to be having a Halloween party

and one who was rockin’ a new hairdo for a costume.
