    A good night's sleep and then a steaming cup of coffee and a hot breakfast on a cool fall morning...the sun is peeking through the window.

    I'm off to the Farmers Market down the road.

    Spending the afternoon outside at a neighborhood Oktoberfest and then coming in and getting engrossed in Little Dorrit on Masterpiece Theater.

    I'm looking forward to cool fall mornings -- maybe this week?

    The sound of the otherwise obnoxious horse chestnuts falling from the trees and hitting all manner of things outside my quiet, nightime window. For some reason, every time I hear one hit the ground, the air conditioner, the wind chimes, whatever, it makes me smile.

    (We have 4 of these bastardz on our property. They are otherwise useless in all ways - inedible fruit, flowers that drop and gunk up the yard, sticky pods that drop after those, spiky green balls after that, then the hard nuts themselves, and of course, the leaves...)

    Watching a squirrel running with a little green apple in his/her mouth heading for a hiding spot. I would have had a picture if I would have been faster with my camera on the phone.

    ETA - So after having this phone for a YEAR, I just now realized there is a camera BUTTON right above my SEND button.. What an idiot I am!!

    Learning something new. I just learned that those "green spiky balls" are actually horse chestnuts/buckeyes. I have to deal with them, too, went to Google: Images....and voila!

    You cold've asked me or UnkleScot, we would've told ya! When I was little we called them "monkey balls". I have no idea why. But they sure hurt when boys whip them at you.

    Also, those scarlet & gray guys w/marijuana leaves running all over people? Those are Buckeyes too! LOL
