monday monologue

It was a busy weekend 
errands, 
work, 
some shopping 
and 
of course 
beautification™
but
I was not
as busy as
these trees 

they spent all weekend


dropping 
those 
golden ginkgo 
leaves


all over all the silver cars!

Cue 
Sting's Fields of Gold



And 
in case you hadnt heard, 
ChesapeakeBayWoman
aka
Janice C. Vogel
a Blister o'mine, 
who blogs 
has finished the book that has ruled her life 
for the last upteen months 
and 
kept her from 
Blogfesting this summer 

the book
Then & Now
Mathews County 
goes on sale December 5th, 
just a hop skip and short jump calendar-wise

it would make a great holiday gift

  1. Wow, thank you for mentioning it, Daryl, you're too kind. The book is very narrowly focused and not exactly riveting reading unless you have an interest in Mathews County, Virginia. But still, thank you so much! You're the best.

    Love your fields of gold.

  11. Thank heavens I don't have a fear of falling leaves Daryl haha! that's one heck of a lot leaves dumped in a short space of time.. Congrats to Chesapeake Bay Woman, what a huge achievement! As much as I fear flying I would definitely get aboard if there was somewhere I badly wanted to go to, but there is NO WAY I'm going out to sea on a boat!!
