It has felt a bit like fall this week. Where we live in
Central California, we get this lovely stuff after a rain,
called Tule Fog. It has been compared to London fog for
its density. I keep expecting to get up one morning and
not be able to see across the yard. I can see it rising
from the ground in the morning when I get up and I can
see it in my pasture when I am walking out back but as of
yet, it hasn't taken over. The one good thing is my
Morning glories stay open all day. I was out the other
morning and they were starting to open which
I have never got a picture of before. They are only open until
about 11:00 in early summer and when it is really hot they are closed
by 9:00 AM
I was amazed at the star shape. I had never seen that
I loved the the little white stripe that they have before
they are completely opened.
I loved how soft they looked and so just crumpled up
like a piece of tissue paper.
I just had to take a picture of this leaf. This leaf is not
posed. I was walking down the side of my yard and
I went through a pile of leaves and there was this lovely
leaf just laying on the ground. I was so glad I had my camera.
I really, really do love fall.
I have to tell you though about the conversation at the library today.
I had ordered a library book that wasn't in our system so today
I had to go pick it up.
I walked in the library and I noticed that there was a new librarian.
I can't help it but she looked a bit grouchy.
That fear I used to have when I was a kid and the librarians were so
strict came over me.
I got my book off the shelf at the self pick-up and walked up
to the counter. I gave her my card and she asked for my
address and right away I knew something was
up. She looked at me real close and I fumbled saying
my address. I thought to myself, " Yeah, that's my address,
yeah that's right."
Then she looks over my account and as I am short and she was
tall she looks down with a very commanding voice. "
You already have 13 books out." Fear jumps into
my throat and the other librarian who is my friend
is sitting there looking something up on the computer and
I said, " It's okay they know me here, they are aware of my
addiction." The nice librarian looks up and laughs and says,
"Oh, yes Kim is okay, we know her."
The new librarian humphs a bit and gives me my book.
I said, They aren't due for three weeks because I always
renew online. I took my book and got out of there.
I love my little library. I didn't know there were librarians
like that around anymore. It gave me a lot to laugh about
on my way home. I love running into people who make life
interesting. I hope you have a lovely Wednesday.
