On Sunday I was feeling cranky. We needed to clean the house. I needed to get my Covid bivalent booster, but I didn’t have an appointment. Too much to do, not enough time.
Fortunately, my wise husband convinced me to get outside on a beautiful fall day to show me a new trail he’d discovered. Our Fair City has many hidden hiking trails that are a short drive from home, and he loves to explore them. This one was once home to a cider mill that has long since disappeared, but the field stone foundation remains, as well as two mill ponds and a stream that once powered the mill. The trail winds around the ponds and stream amidst oaks and maples and white pines and sassafras. Walking through the stunning fall foliage was just the antidote I needed, and I returned home refreshed. As for my booster shot, it can wait until Thursday. Hope you enjoy the view . . .
