So I’m experiencing a great deal of frustration right now, a frustration that grows out of things beyond my control. I know, I know, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, recognize the things I can’t control ...” blabbity blabbity bloo.

We suffered a detrimental fire in our home a couple of weeks ago. Everybody was safe, most of our stuff is wrecked; but again, everybody is safe. As of now, I don’t care about the singed wedding dress, charred antique study desk or smoke-damaged couch.
The month of October gave us its massive changes. Not only did we witness the fascinating foliage show early in the month, but we watched as wind and rain brought down the leaves by the middle of the month.

By this time in October, we’ve seen plenty of the changes attributed to this month. Most notable is the leaf drop that was speeded up a bit by a series of windy days at mid-month. Looking out into the woods now, we see far deeper through this tree growth than we could since early last spring.
