I'm not sure why I was sad as I strolled through our yard this morning...
Could it be the thinning of leaves,
the straggly awkwardness of once-proud perennials,
the strong hints of the coming "deadness" of winter,
or the regrets for things neglected in season past?
The squirrels seem to notice NONE of it - scampering and screeching
far too fast for my camera to catch their activity.
I'll take a lesson from them and apply myself to tasks at hand today.
Focused, thorough and (hopefully) productive.
