My Autumn Almanac

 
 
From the dew-soaked hedge creeps a crawly caterpillar,
When the dawn begins to crack.
It's all part of my autumn almanac.
Breeze blows leaves over, mostly coloured yellow,
So I sweep them in my sack.
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac.

 
 
 
Friday evenings, people get together,
Hiding from the weather.
Tea and toasted, buttered currant buns
Can't compensate for lack of sun,
Because the summer's all gone.

 
 
 
 
La-la-la-la...
Oh, my poor rheumatic back
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac.
La-la-la-la...
Oh, my autumn almanac
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac.

 
 
 
 
I like my football on a Saturday,
Roast beef on Sundays, all right.
I go to Blackpool for my holidays,
Sit in the open sunlight.

 
 
 
 
This is my street, and I'm never gonna leave it,
And I'm always gonna stay here
If I live to be ninety-nine,
'Cause all the people I meet
Seem to come from my street
And I can't get away,
Because it's calling me, (come on home)
Hear it calling me, (come on home)

 
 
 
 
La-la-la-la...
Oh, my autumn Armagnac
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac.
La-la-la-la...
Oh, my autumn almanac
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.


I had a wonderful day on Saturday where I did absolutely nothing, at least nothing I didn't want to do...now that's how life should be every day don't you think?!

  2. I like that idea, too, which is why I am trying to take part of each day, just to enjoy life!

  3. Love the leaves and the textures. I feel like I can touch them and crunch and scrunch them, they are so real.

  4. You are not going to believe this, but I have never heard this song. Ever.
    Yesterday I bagged the cleaning idea, at least the inside. I cleaned up around the house because it was so beautiful out there! I did get two more windows done and now the morning sun looks so beautiful coming in. The old windows in this house are the most difficult I've ever had to clean.

  8. All of your images are wonderful, they really capture the essence of fall. I think doing nothing or having nothing to do is a choice and a wonderful one at that. Sometimes we just need to give ourselves permission to do nothing and enjoy the process. Kathysue
