Leaf and Stream (297/365)

“Find myself beside a stream of empty thought,
Like a leaf that’s fallen to the ground,
And carried by the flow of water to my dreams
Woken only by your sound.”

Turner, Martin. "Leaf and Stream.” Wishbone Ash. Argus. Decca/MCA, 1972.

TIME:  11:01 AM
PLACE:  Knight’s Home Field
SUBJECT:  Leaf and stream

HH and DQ were still out of commission this morning and SD complained that her throat
was hurting her.  So I left them all at home and escaped the “Contaminated House of the Damned” for a few hours by taking MB to his football game.  It was a perfect day for football…cool temps (50 degrees) and bright sunshine.  And they won…34-12!  MB even made an interception.

We retuned home and I left for Target to purchase candy to had out at our parish’s “Trunk or Treat” that was scheduled after the 5pm Mass.  The kids are invited to wear their costumes (without the mask) to church.  Afterwards, they serve hotdogs, chips and drinks.  The cars are parked headlight to headlight and the children go from car to car “Trunk or Treating.”  The area is fenced-in so the kids are free to roam without worry.  The amount of candy my kiddos bring home is amazing.  I tell them that they don’t need to go out on Halloween…they've got enough!  Yeah, whatever Mom.
