Golden

  Definitely starting to look and feel a bit like fall. I walked my little 3-mile loop. Boring, but easy. Goldenrod was glowing in the slanting afternoon sunshine. goldenrod Remember the strange plant I had so much trouble identifying a couple of years ago? Ox-Tongue? It's still filling in the roadside spaces on the corner where I first found it. I'm thinking the seeds got brought in with some fill dirt when they fixed that road. ox-tongue And, right in front of me, a golden leaf fluttered down to the pavement. For that leaf, the end of summer has come. golden maple leaf In other news: I did pretty well at our little sales event. I've picked up another event for next weekend. I finished writing chapter 10 in The Lonely Donkey. I'm ready to chuck 2020 and start acting like an author who wants to sell books again.

It is so nice that my name is also a verb. Oh, and I agree, I'm ready to chuck 2020 as well.

The fun one is when folks ask me, "What's upchuck?" [at least that the way I hear it]

I can feel that summer is coming to an end.
