First day of fall
This morning was the first time I've joined the walking group in a couple of months, since my Saturdays have been filled with blue skies and week after week of being able to spend money at Skydive Snohomish. I just looked at the Harvey Field webcam and see that it's raining at the moment with skies that look similar to those around here. Although only 75 miles separate Bellingham from Snohomish, the weather can be completely different.
This afternoon I'm going to visit my Russian friends who have promised me they will have borscht made especially for me (vegetarian). I'm looking forward to it. Now that I have written today's post, I think I'll delve back into the book that is consuming me. It's Isabel Wilkerson's book about the Great Migration of blacks from the South to the North and West of the country. She follows the lives of three people, and although it's not a novel, it reads like one. The book is called The Warmth of Other Suns and I'm truly engrossed.
