Easy Saturday Evening...

~A Blade of Grass~

Said a blade of grass to an autumn leaf, "You make such a noise falling! You scatter all my winter dreams."

Said the leaf indignant, "Low-born and low-dwelling! Songless, peevish thing! You live not in the upper air and you cannot tell the sound of singing."

Then the autumn leaf lay down upon the earth and slept. And when spring came she waked again -- and she was a blade of grass.

And when it was autumn and her winter sleep was upon her, and above her through all the air the leaves were falling, she muttered to herself, "O these autumn leaves! They make such a noise! They scatter all my winter dreams."

Just stopping by after a lovely day with SGTex. After a heavenly, lazy morning, he gathered some mesquite from around the neighborhood and barbecued burgers. Since then, it's been wonderful being able to relax and enjoy an easy Saturday.

Now it's time for me to get a little work done here at the desk, and he's off to visit a friend for a bit. Hoping you all have had a nice day, too.

Hey, it's that time to fall back into Standard Time, so don't forget to set those clocks!
