Hot, Cold and when it rains on the path least traveled…

Diary from the path least traveled..

Hello Diary,

Thought I would pop in and share a few thoughts before bringing the day to an end… have some good reading downloaded on the Kindle so going to prop the feet up and relax while listening to some easy-listening music… may not even turn the TV on… 🙂

Woke up to a cool ( 46 degrees) fall morning on the path least traveled this morning, with clear blue skies…


Was not that way the first part of the week with temperatures still in the 90 degree range and high humidity.. definitely had an affect on all the creatures that were preparing for fall and winter… got so warm for this particular squirrel that it had to take time for a breather and cool off…

While it were too warm to do much outside, prepared for the coming winter indoors…didn’t want to be setting all the time so will be using some of the hobbies/projects standing… will do some painting standing up….


Also decided to work on the puzzle from time to time standing up, so put it on the dining room table as I rarely use it an will not have to dismantle the puzzle…


Were outside for a time working on weather instruments this morning and found the backyard unusually quiet.. ventured indoors briefly to get some batteries and looked out the kitchen window and saw the reason for the quiet… a Cooper’s hawk had decided to stop in and pay the path a visit…

It eventually moved on and the backyard became a bustling community of creatures getting ready for winter… will leave shortly but before I go, shall leave some words about destiny;

Destiny sits upon the morning horizon
Always in site, but never clear
And as I travel along the road I have chosen
Destiny remains forever in place
Sitting upon the morning horizon

But as the years pass
And the road spans the distance
Between yesterday and tomorrow
I know my destiny will arrive

For time alone will close the gap
So yesterday becomes dust filled memories
And the horizon of tomorrow
Will be the road of today

For then, there will be no yesterday or tomorrow, only today
And when that day arrives
I will find peace and be complete
For I will be one with my destiny
(Favi F)

And speaking of horizons, can see mine clear with the sunny, cloudless skies… so better venture on down the path least traveled and follow that horizon, while enjoying all the path contains, but I shall return one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

And on rainy days, a good time to reflect and contemplate while listening to Secret Garden…
