I did me some balcony sitting today. Some feet up reading and munching on miniature chocolate bars. Some watching the leaves fall and the neighbourhood enjoy the sunshine.
What a strangely warm day for a November in Ontario! There I was, all over dressed in socks and a fleece blanket, becoming one with the winds and leaf song, immersed in a book I’ve only read once before. Happily and strangely enough, becoming a landing strip for the flocks of lady bugs that seem to be out celebrating the unusually warm autumn weather as well. Sounds lovely, right?
I wonder if all the balconies are a pit stop for these fluttering and surprisingly sharp as they brush past your face…spotted and so called Ladies! Could they be a sign? Some sort of kitchen witches familiar? Or just enthusiastic bug life here to drive Kissa the Kitty Cat mad I wonder?!
Even got out for a brief walk later on, once I had picked up the Lively One from his reading and home work club. Bringing his scooter is a great idea, he can zip around and I can stare at leaf patterns.
Oh! And we stopped by the pool to see what was happening there since we abandoned it to become a massive petri dish… Looks like it has some new inhabitants. I wonder if they noticed the No Diving sign!
I might even go further tomorrow. I am still hoping to capture a leaf on film, as it falls, naturally. Because tossing a handful of leaves in the air and then trying to get a picture of them as they fall… not working out so well! Entertaining for the neighbourhood as per usual though. Looks like tomorrow will be another beauty of a day! It was fun to have me and my camera out and about, despite various body complaints. But I couldn’t really concentrate on the things worth zooming in on, when I was so properly distracted by the zooming about thing… Anyway I did have a good day today, nice and lazy with sides of slightly productive. A good Monday really. Except that it was Tuesday.
