November has been a bit November-ish if you know what I mean.
Today it felt like ...
All the leaves are brown....
and the sky is gray...
There is a special subtle beauty in November, once the
lovely flashiness of September and October color is over and
the world becomes a symphony of neutrals.
outdoor projects started
and put on hold as life invariably gets in the way
There is always something that needs doing and it isn't always what a person
thought they were going to do, is it?
Since I took this picture, this old house has been demolished.
sad, really isn't it?
whenever I see a house in this sort of abandoned state I want more than
anything to go inside and see what it looks like in there
There was an abandoned house kitty corner across the road from my grandparents farm
when I was small. I remember going inside with my twin aunts. How cool were they to
let a 10 or so year old tag along? I remember there were still old
dishes in the kitchen, not in usable condition, but still they were sitting
there, on the table and the counter top. There was a very old faded
print on the wall above the table too. Or am I imagining that I remember that?
We didn't touch anything, or rescue any of the dishes or the picture.
We just quietly went back to grandmas.
