What a fall we've had. Warm and dry. Very few leaves have started to turn as evidenced by this weeping willow over the lake. I certainly hope it doesn't bode for a hard winter. When I got up this morning, it was clear, then a fog rolled in. Unusual. It is cooler though today.
I planted a small pencil holly this morning. I love that they keep their tall narrow shape and do so without any pampering. The glass wind chimes I hung this summer were taken down and packed away for next spring. This wreath on the patio was coming down too, but I spied Jenny Wren perched on it - checking it out. They love to overnight in little pockets and just as I expected, she hopped right into the middle hole, so I'll probably leave it up for her this winter.
I can't remember if I showed you this book. I ordered it from Barnes and Noble. Supposed to be a southern novel, in the vein of Faulkner and others. The author is from Montana?? How can you be a southern writer from Montana? It was worth the read, which for me is a thumbs up. I think you know from past reviews, I like books you can't put down - want my head to explode and I'm more often than not disappointed.
Since I have found so few books of fiction that take my breath away, I've been looking for more non-fiction books. I hope some of these will take me down a new path. Does anyone know a good biography of Eleanor Roosevelt and also Theodore Roosevelt?
I just finished binge watching House Of Cards last night. Boy, can I pick em - and at the same time of the coming election. Will have to find another series to start watching. Any suggestions?
