Rain On It's Way

Updated on October 27, 2016

It's Time

No matter what my plans may have been

When the weather refuses to cooperate

I head indoors and leave the yard for another day

Around the second week in October

I usually put away the yard decorations and plastic black fencing

Before the frost comes

By now all leaves have fallen

I mulch them with my lawn mower

They are good for the soil and grass

By the end of the winter they will have started to compost

Neighbors bag them up and haul them away

I like to put them to good use

It takes more time and doesn't look as nice

In the end it works out well

Natures own natural soil additive

Branches fall from the rain and the wind

I burn them in a little fire pit out back

At 5:54 it's pitch black

In the summertime it doesn't turn dark till 8:30

All the pretty flowers are gone

The looks plain and bare

I pulled up the garden and ripped up the tomato plants and weeds

The weather is turning colder at night

Chance of snow up North

Real windy the past two days

Happy Halloween to all the trick or treators

May they have fun pretending to be their favorite Super Hero

Maybe a Princess or even a horse

It's nice to watch them laugh and be so happy

I enjoyed Halloween when I was young

Leaving with a little candy and a memory

      Gypsy Rose Lee I worked this Halloween and many in the past. I couldn't make a friends Halloween party and would love to think of a cool costume for next Halloween. I have a whole year to plan. Thinking of all the fun when I was young will always be in my mind and as an adult we tend to have so many other priorities that keep us busy.I hope all those people and children that did celebrate were safe and had so much fun. My cousin really goes all out and decorating their house and yard. It always looks great and they add to it every year. Amazing and thanks for sharing your video. Thank you for reading and commenting. Have a wonderful day.

      Thank you for the memories of past Halloweens. I was always a little witch. In Latvia they aren't into Halloween but hubby and I had some beer and remembered the spooks that go flying about. We had our first small snowfall and for some reason this year it made me want to cry. Guess it caught me by surprise. Welcome to November.
