Walking in the Patch

One is tall and thin

Another is short and squat

Most are orange, some are albino

I don’t care, I’ll take the lot.

This short poem, intended to be a little silly, really does reflect a wonderful afternoon I spent out with my fiancé walking through a pumpkin patch. This pumpkin patch was attached to a farm that has become way too commercialized with carnival rides, games, food, and lines *literally* miles long. The patch itself is separated from all of the other stuff and it was surprisingly empty compared to its surrounding, but it was, by far, the best part! And it got me thinking.

Sometimes, we can get so caught up in the “hubbub” of the holiday season that it flies right past us before we even realize it’s here. Taking some quiet time with a loved one, walking through a pumpkin patch, is definitely my favorite Fall memory this year.

              1. It’s just frustrating and tiring. They still haven’t figured out the legs and feet swelling. I’ve had ultrasounds, nerve conduction studies, and an MRI, still no anwers. Swelling has been since June now. Cardiologist has me on a generic Lasix (sp?) to help remove fluid, but not helping much other than having to go to the bathroom every hour, lol. I’m tired of hurting, doctor visits, tests, and pills, but I keep going. Thanks for caring 🙂 ❤
