I Saw Sunday Week 53
For I Saw Sunday Week 53: Week In Review
Went to my sister’s for a hair cut, mid-week. We had lunch and then she lightened my burden by several inches. She was a beautician before she retired. We get together at least once a week, and have become those two old women who frequently discuss body functions and physical symptoms. And we laugh out loud whenever we catch ourselves doing so.
It was a beautiful fall day outside, so we went out on her patio for a bit. But, there was a problem. It is fall, which means the squirrels are in frantic efforts to store what they can before winter. There is a huge old oak tree that overhangs the southern part of her house. And it is full of acorns. The squirrels obviously love that tree and hustle through it constantly gathering acorns. They do seem to drop quite a few of them, which then roll down the roof, and plop onto the patio. We both got hit and discussed the possibility that the squirrels are quite deliberate in their aim. May even be egging one another on to see how many points they might accumulate for direct hits.
I did have my camera with me and took a few shots of the acorns, becoming a bit intrigued by the shapes and shadows in the wonderful Autumn sunlight.
