We set our clocks back tonight and gain an extra hour of rest…

Don’t know how many times I’ve forgotten this… and arrived an hour early to church

Halloween disappeared today… put away until next October… but, Thanksgiving arrived with a few “Gobble Gobbles”… sitting around…

My things I sit out are quite old… Some I’ve had several years… but, still enjoy deciding where to put them…
