Month: November 2021

Gleaning

I’m very confused. I don’t know if it’s autumn or winter. Yesterday we woke up to snow, but today the temperature rose to 50 degrees. Tomorrow there is snow in the forecast, but by Friday we will be back to rain. I didn’t really… Continue Reading “Gleaning”

Most of the month of October was quite warm, requiring only that I wear a sweatshirt or light jacket when I went outside. Chilly, blustery, damp weather moved in on Halloween, and today–the first of November–it felt downright wintry. In fact, tonight and tomorrow… Continue Reading “The First of November”
