Wheatgrass catches a hint of sunshine through the mostly cloudy sky today.

I have a couple of days off this week, taking some vacation I need to use or lose. I toyed with a short camping trip, but then decided to make at least a little effort to start cleaning the house in advance of the family’s visit for Christmagiving later this month.

The break has given me the chance to put a few rounds downrange. On Monday I did some drills with one of my 9mm pistols, and today I spent some time getting a scope zeroed on a Mossberg .22. It’s better shooting weather than summer. Today it was cloudy and cool.

After shooting I grabbed a camera, which my readers know I often do. Since we’ve had our first freeze, everything is turning brown and grey. Still, it made pictures, including Abby’s “Dog Crossing” sign, which I previously photographed in August and in July (links).

I didn't put in a garden this year, but some of my marigolds decided to grow anyway, seen here today drooping from a freeze a few days ago.

This time of year summons many memories, some old, some more recent. I found myself lost in thought about them all today.

Abby's "Dog Crossing" sign, which I photographed twice this year as the seasons changed on it, is now covered in browning Morning Glory, which is done for the season.
