It's break time and warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the weather. Life is good.
This Food Lion just received their shipment of Christmas Trees. Already. Here's where I come out as an old fogey. Can't we wait 'til after Thanksgiving? Sufficient unto the month are the holidays thereof? If we're focused on Christmas now, what about Thanksgiving? Did we observe Veteran's Day with full attention, or were we planning turkey dinners already? Be Here Now or you miss something. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.

and I've been ignoring
Paperwork that grows in piles
Which should be put in trash or files.
No hiking trips for me today,
I'll make the piles go away.
I'm parked in Danville, VA, getting rid of accumulated paperwork, taking a break to enjoy the fall colors out the window through the rain and the warmth of my pseudo-fireplace, Mr. Heater. It's a good day to curl up with a good book and I intend to do so right after the last pile goes poof.
