getting ready under the full moon
I was working until dark because right after work I needed to pick up 42 pumpkins from Othniel down at Common Sense. He had picked them up at a wholesale market and they were waiting for me in their barn. I was so happy with them, all fat and round, my truck is still loaded up with them. I need to go back out and cover them up from the rain headed our way. I welcome it. The pasture needs it (what's left of it at least).
I'm tired, but excited. My friend Raven is coming up from maryland and I haven't seen her since college. We talk on the phone all the time, but it has been five years since we shared a cup of tea. I'm excited to share my world and community with her, and for her to meet characters in my life I've been telling her about for years.
I would have posted a photo of the pumpkins, but the moon isn't that bright. My iphone doesn't have the chops for that sort of work, and I'm currently lacking a digital camera, but I'll wrangle one of them up soon enough, I'm sure.
