Tonight I am a bit later to give my critters their last hay.
Out side, immediately I am struck with awe at all the stars that can be seen, looking upward. The air has a little chill to it, but such a clear and crisp evening is refreshing.
Just a hint of mist, but you can clearly see the big and little dipper.
I am wary going out, now that the nights are longer and it darkens quicker. The moon is only showing a quarter of it's normal size.
My mind plays tricks, and I worry, just in case I stumble on momma bear and her cubs.
My trusted companion is near at hand, and notifies me of anything that may be a miss.
In the distance I can hear the slight sound of the rumblings of a train
on the tracks
Taking away a little from the ambiance, is some loud noises off towards the eastern way. I guess someone is being entertained with
early fire works.
