Woke with the dawn this morning.
put on my robe, headed downstairs,
and greeted the quiet morning
out back on the deck,
A beautiful, grounding, peaceful way to start the day
sipping and cradling a warm mug of chai
I brewed yesterday.
No run, but a nice,long walk
instead with this nasty cold that still lingers.
I see and think deeper,
it seems, with the slower pace.
Making plans, gathering groceries
for our little cabin overnighter
with some of the kids tomorrow.
What a treat to be there on that mountain-side,
surrounded by those brilliant, blazing colors.
Autumn, you are my favorite.
Decided it was a good day to bake some bread,
that, along with my good intention
of making up a pot of potato soup to go with,
but playing with the charcoal
got me a little distracted,
and time got away from me.
Everyone soon heading to Papa's
to watch the football game.
and it looks like the soup didn't matter
