Oh to linger longer….

With talk of snow in the forecast, I linger longer in town while running errands this day.

I admire shining red ornaments on the tree in front of the old bank building.

One glorious gift from Mother Nature.

I watch Christmas lights being hung on the oversized evergreen standing watch next to the train depot.

I turn to the sandy beach behind me and see just two adirondack chairs remain now for those who wait out the storm.

I take one.

I won’t surrender to winter until the last chair is gone.

Or the lake freezes over.

Please note, I can be very patient.
