The temperature is hovering around 40 degrees so none of the snow or hail lasted long after hitting the ground.
How strong has the wind been?
Right before lunch I glanced out into the garden and saw the top of one of our cold frames lying open behind the frame at a funny angle. The frame tops are secured with hinges on one side and a bungie fastener on the other side which is hooked into two eye hooks. The wind not only snapped the bungie but pulled one of the eye hooks out of the wood frame.

Boy, did I get a kink thrown in my energetic list about which I blogged yesterday. Other than cleaning the bathroom, not a blasted thing got crossed off. How is it that you can keep moving all day long, but at the end of the day you've accomplished so little of what you planned on getting done? Yep, the business of "life" does get in the way often times.
And time keeps flying by way too fast. I just noticed that the cottage cheese I'm making is ready for the next state of processing. That means I started it two hours ago. Where did those two hours go? Or the tidbit that our daughter shared this morning: She recently bumped into the father of a high school girlfriend and he commented that this is his daughter's twentieth year of teaching. It seems that this gal and our daughter graduated from college just about five years ago. Where did those twenty years go?
Anybody else see time zipping by? Are you, too, getting frustrated waiting until you "have time" to do things you want to do that repeatedly get pushed to the bottom of your list?
Well, if we do indeed have an early winter this year, I'm all for it. Will I make this the winter I spend whole days snuggled under a quilt on the couch reading? Or have as much time as I've dreamed of in my quilt room? Or waking to a day I can spend in any way I wish without thought to the passing hours?
Here's a quote by Lao Tzu that brought me up short and caused me to mutter, "Whoa!"
"Time is a created thing. To say 'I don't have time'
is to say 'I don't want to.'"
Do you believe that? Do you think that statement is true?
