What amazing weather! I had my grandsons this weekend and we spent much of the time outside enjoying the warmth and beautiful sunshine. We played disc golf on Saturday and miniature golf on Sunday. I hit a hole-in-one, which is pretty incredible for me!
It is interesting that some trees are completely bare now, but others are holding onto their leaves despite the wind and rain. I do love the reds and oranges, but right now the golden glow is lovely. I was coming through Ascutney on Wednesday when there was a two minute deluge of tiny sleet balls hitting my windshield. It didn’t last long, but I understand that snow covered the ground in Mt Holly for a time.
This week will be the gathering of the Book Group to discuss Agent Sonya — Moscow’s Most Daring Wartime Spy by Ben McIntyre. It was eye-opening to learn the intricacies of spy work and that all countries seem to do it – some with more success than others. We will meet at 6:30 PM on Wed, 11/10 at the community center and thanks to Rose, Zoom will be an option.
Belated Happy Birthday to Willow Bascom (11/2) and warm wishes to young Julia Baldwin (11/20) and Joan Day (11/30). I admit that I am not very good at keeping track, so feel free to send me a reminder, so I include your special day. Thought for the day: “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
