An Equinox and a Dangled Carat



Charlie basks in the autumn Equinox
With its equal halves of day and night
Heralding the end of summer light
And beginning the hunt for his Christmas socks!
:-)
The above pic taken 22 September 2013.
And here is a very succinct explanation of an equinox!

Bloggie pals!! I shall be on a 2 day training course at work (Monday - Tuesday)  – so forgive me if I'm late visiting your blogs!

p.s. a big big SHOUT OUT to the unbelievably stunningly beautiful  (seriously - she's HOT!) Hilary Grossman and her published memoir, Dangled Carat, the story of how she  got her commitment-phobic man to put a ring on it! Yay!

Happy Autumn!

Hi Old Kitty - I think you should be home with Charlie and Gumboot .. way too much wonderful sun and beautiful weather to be tucked away inside ..
