Silently, suddenly, the heron lifted off the water, spreading his great wings wide, long legs dangling and neck outstretched as he flew away in the fog.
I am glad to come in from the cold to a fire and a hot cup of tea. Summer days are definitely past, and autumn full here. One morning this week I looked out to frost on the roofs. I feared for the dahlias and zinnias, but it didn't touch them, and I am glad.
Tomorrow will be a busy day - I was called to substitute teach. I just added my name to the list, and this is my first call. It will be a bit strange to be back in the school where I taught, but I'm looking forward to it.
