Over the past month, my daughter and I have been collecting some photographs of the fall foliage around our part of southeastern Connecticut. I thought I should share them before the snow starts to fly and fall photos are no longer applicable.
The pasture off Route 85 North in Waterford, Connecticut.
An antique home off Route 184 in Old Mystic, Connecticut.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
