things to do when the big frost is on the way

-- harvest the last of the broccoli, including the leaves, for the rabbits
-- take one last picture of the flowers on the deck
-- put on a sweatshirt and resisting turning on the heat
-- pull up a few bean vines for the rabbit hutch -- what a treat!
-- harvest the last zucchini, even though it's really too small
-- bring in a batch of tomatoes to ripen indoors
-- offer the rabbits one last helping of fresh cabbage
-- pick the last bit of parsley and stray carrot greens for a bunny treat
-- wonder if rabbits binge eat like humans do
-- wave goodbye to the late-growing hollyhocks
-- pick some late rhubarb for one last batch of muffins
-- think about packing away the shorts and capris
-- think about getting out the warm sweaters and sweatshirts
-- stir the compost pile
-- inhale deeply the scent of the smoke from the neighbor's woodstove
-- bring in a few logs for the fireplace
-- think about cleaning the fireplace: nah, maybe tomorrow
-- marvel at the early darkness
-- drink cinnamon tea from my Pillsbury Doughboy mugs and feel warm and cozy
