    Sons Benjamin, 21, and Joseph, 18, both have left for work. It is 5 a.m. and I decided I’ll write this column while all is still quiet. The weather has taken a big change overnight. Yesterday, and for over a week, we have had nice, sunny, warm weather. Now this morning the temperature is in the lower 40’s and seems to gradually be dropping.

    It’s funny how things work sometimes. I’m not a superior gardener in practice, like some people are, but I know my way around the soil and I know how to plant seeds. I can’t always get them to grow, but that’s another matter.

    As my husband and I took our daily walk around our neighborhood this weekend, we were enjoying the mid-autumn day as if it were summer. It was summer of a sort – our Indian summer, that short period of unseasonably warm weather following a killing frost. It was a definite positive following a stressful week.

    This Veterans Day we reflect on the sacrifices made by those who volunteered to defend the United States. But let's also find time to consider that these sacrifices were undertaken to defend values that our ruling-class-in-waiting seeks to undermine.

    Here are a few suggestions:

    We are having nice, sunny autumn weather with temperature in the 60’s by the end of the day. It’s a good time to get the leaves raked and the yard cleaned up before the snow flies. We did have a coating of snow on Sunday, but it didn’t accumulate much.

    I also have some tulip bulbs I want to plant this week.

    Supper is over, evening devotions have been said, and everyone has either gone to bed or is showering, reading, or just relaxing as I write this column.

    On the wall in our kitchen, there are two framed items that give visitors pause. It’s interesting to watch the look on their faces as they try to first figure out what they are, and second, why they’re there.

    Halloween is coming right up and though it may be a bit different this year, it will still manage to be fun for many. I’ve never really been into it, but Mother Nature has been dishing up some freaky flora long before Halloween was even a thing. And I am a fan of that.

    Amy Stewart is the author of many bestselling books, including Wicked Plants, in which she dishes on over two hundred “botanical atrocities.” It’s the gardener’s perfect Halloween read. Gardening, it turns out, can be a very spooky endeavor.

    Over the years I have written about my daughter Verena’s brain concussion and the almost seven years that she had post-concussion syndrome. I also wrote about our children who have limb girdle type 2 muscular dystrophy. Readers have asked why my daughters use mobility scooters. Here is Verena’s story in her own words:
