There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self. ~ Ernest Hemingway
It’s the last week of October. Typically, Autumn is my favorite time of year. The days are shorter, the trees provide a spectacular show, it’s officially tea/soup weather, and I can layer up knitted items. This Autumn has felt a bit flat compared to some years. It’s hard to be positive all the time especially as we see European countries go back into lockdown. Here in the PNW, we never moved out of phased reopening. Some places are still closed. The only thing I can safely predict about COVID is the death count is going to continue to climb. My heart goes out to all of you that have lost family members or loved ones from the virus. Sending you virtual hugs.
Garden Update: We have compost for the rhubarb. Thank you followers for the suggestions! The sunflowers are now composting and pots are ready for planting next Spring.
This week I’ve been enjoying apples on my salads from our apple tree harvest. It’s so much cheaper to cook your own chicken. I know that. Sometimes we need protein in a hurry. The hot rotisserie chickens from the deli are perfect. Sure it’s more expensive than cooking myself, but it’s cheaper than dinning out when I’m crunched for time. It’s so much easier to stay carb-free when I sort of make my own meals.
SkeinHerder Ponders: This week I’ve mostly been thinking about: Just who killed who at the Copacabana?
