October Rains

looking up

 

The October rains have come.  There is the usual necessary work to be done (the schoolwork, the dishes, the doctor’s appointments and general child-maintenance) and some larger changes underfoot in our household that keep us up, talking and planning.  My writing gets tucked in at nap-time or before bed with the last dregs of the day.  The housework, characteristically, falls behind.  I never cared much about laundry, anyway.

The October rains have come.  And I think I will put some apples in the oven to eat, hot, with dinner.  When the rains go, we will have that best slice of autumn, that cool and sunny slice with all the colors.

But for now the rain is here, and it is warm outside the house and in.
