I saw Mr. and Ms. Broom decorating a homeowner’s garden and knew the pair would be perfect for my Sweetest Day post.
Corny as it sounds, can we assume that after Mr. Broom swept Ms. Broom off her feet, they were married and a passel of whisk brooms soon followed?
What a gorgeous day to spend with your sweetie … the weather was picture perfect for a jaunt to the cider mill, attending a Fall fair or a trip to the pumpkin patch. I wish we could bottle these type of days up and dole them out sparingly during the long Winter ahead.
I headed out with the camera in tow. There were a few more houses groaning with harvest and Halloween décor that I wanted to photograph in the sunshine, because the light isn’t always good for picture taking in my early morning weekday jaunts.
Today, there was an added bonus – ducks and geese at the Ecorse Creek. There were more of them this morning than I’ve seen altogether since Spring. They were frolicking loudly in the Creek water. In between quacking and honking, they were flapping their wings, nibbling on reeds and diving for who knows what? I tried to take some pictures of them, but they were too far away from me and the sun was in my eyes, so with this point-and-shoot camera, all I saw was my own reflection. I took the pictures anyway, and we’ll see how they turn out.
I meandered along on this beautiful day, hating to come home as I had some outside tasks lined up. It seemed kind of silly “winterizing” around the outside of the house on such a warm day, but, it sure is no fun checking off the chore list with frozen fingers either.
I put my own corn straw broom to work to give the house a little TLC, something that has been sorely lacking at this abode throughout the long, hot Summer, and even the Fall.
I got in a 4 ½ mile walk today and I hope that you all enjoyed the beautiful day as well.
To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to love and be loved, that’s everything.

Happy Sweetest Day to you and those who make you smile.
