Big changes came this week in our weather. And boy were we ready! The children couldn’t get enough of the outdoors. I am right there with ’em!
I even found an appropriate clipping from grandma and I’d bet she loved this time of year just as much.
In the past, I have had several Persimmon Reports. The first in 2011, followed by 2012, 2013, and after skipping a few years, I resumed after enough requests from family and friends in 2017 and last year. There’s only so much you can say about winter predictions with a persimmon so I’ll keep it simple. Remember this is not scientific.
- Fork = Mild winter
- Knife = Cold Cutting Temps
- Spoon = Lots of moisture whether it’s rain or snow, you’ll be getting your fair share.
Drum roll………. For the Winter of 2019-2020 ……….
With the exception of the dud seed in that last pic, you can expect much moisture this coming winter. I do hear your groans and I apologize profusely. Grab your shovels and snowblowers or have that extra cash handy to pay the neighbors kids to shovel for you.
For me, it means I will have to be pretty creative in helping children expell all their wiggles. Prayers as well as suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
Speaking of creativity, I was gifted a cute lil’ pumpkin this last week as well as a bounty from a neighbors community garden.
There were enough beans to share with my mother! And I did snap them ahead for her ’cause that’s what you do for you mom.
Leaving you this Sunday with a photo of the Katy Trail. May your week ahead bring you much sunshine and wonderful autumn days!
