attack of the toads and other adventures

Fall can be strange. Just yesterday evening I asked myself, "Was that Thanksgiving?", simply because I was walking jacketless with the G (also jacketless as she is losing her summer coat) through the cemetery and having to seriously watch my step as G dashed about in the dark, excited by the hoards of toads hopping happily wild in the mild breeze.

Then tonight we were surprised by a sudden clap of thunder as a storm commenced, and my next thought was that hopefully the hard rain will not knock away the odoriferous deliciousness that are the flowers of the magical rocket candy trees, which I believe I raved about last autumn as well.

I don't have much else to say, nor do I much these days, feeling unwell to some degree 75-80% of the time and needing to focus on work when pain free and sharp-brained. Life marches on, if anyone wonders (and is peeved I haven't sent any mail). Yet another bad haircut, a speedy sleek new bicycle, and an aged PC that has fallen victim to a fatal case of self-random-rebooting disease. Rien d'excitant de verdad.


Is that one of the purple rocket candy flowers? Is there really such a thing? Do they require ribbits from the frogs in order to bloom?

I'm following G on twitter now.

We (M & me) had an amazing Thanksgiving dinner. Then we made soup. Get her to tell you about the ExPLodinG pancake fiasco! OMG is was funny (now... not then. Then it scared the bejezus outta me!)

Anyway, happy fall. All hallow's eve is soooooooon.
hey C,
I would love to smell those magical flowers - can you capture them & their scent in a box and send it to me?

Sounds like G-dog is enjoying the toady fall. This morning during my rainy walk in the dark I noticed the colors of the trees and all the leaves on the ground and I realized that yes, it really is fall now. While the dreary winter ahead is not a pleasant thought, I do love this beautiful season in all its glory!

I wish you felt well 75-80% and unwell only 20-25% of the time.
Lynne - Didn't know you converted to blogger. gotta go visit! nope, the flowers are orange. i shoulda taken a photo, cuz by now they've fallen. Hope you had a nice visit. Yes, i'm sure M will tell me about the pancake fiasco.
