It rained last night, and the streets were wet when I peeked out the front window curtains before dawn arrived.
Today the sides of the valley are wearing scarves of cloud, and I can see snow is now visible up there.
Snow shovels are poised for action but first I have more leaves to rake outside, but soon that chore will be done for 2019.
A doe and her twins has been visiting regularly, in both the front and back yard, nibbling on the soft grasses and the bright cactus my son planted.
I hope they have a dry spot somewhere to lie down today. Such placid calm visitors, they saunter the neighbourhood, sampling as they go.
(I didn’t get a picture of the deer today, so I used ones from earlier this year)
