Brrrrrrr – it sure was cold when I stepped out.
It seems like God’s memo to Mother Nature, advising her of Fall’s arrival on September 22nd, thus far was unheeded, until today.
Tomorrow may be another story.
It certainly felt like Fall this morning, and, as I strolled along and saw those wisps of breath coming from my mouth, there now is no denying that the outside water needs to be shut off, sooner, rather than later, even if we will get a reprieve and near 80 degrees over the weekend.
Those Fall outside chores are looming large, but really … how silly is this upcoming weather forecast anyway? These rollercoaster temps will cause the pumpkins and beautiful gourds on people’s porches to shrink and shrivel away, long before Halloween and harvest season are done.
With a hat plunked on my head, gloves on my hands, and an extra sweater as well, I felt strangely encumbered, burdened by too many layers of clothes and moving along like a mummy.
Sadly, after that sultry hot Summer, we must all come to grips that after this warmish weekend, with its last fling for bare arms and legs … bare trees, and not bare knees, will soon be in abundance.
