Tuesday Night


There’s a light rain out there tonight.  A cold rain with a cool breeze passing by.  The deck feels cold on my bare feet when step out on it.  The season changed on me within hours.  I don’t need a calendar to tell me when Fall officially begins.  I knew something was up when I checked my garden before supper.  I can feel and sense the change. I can see how quickly my garden has changed in the past week.  It’s time.

I anticipate the colours starting to show fairly soon.  The geese are already flocking together and you can see large flocks of them bunched up in the sky.  The pass close by with their honking and wings flapping.  The corn and bean fields will be turning golden and will shine in the afternoon sun.  I would give almost anything to be on an open air tractor pulling a wagon across a field as a combine harvests the crops.  Life is pretty simple and easy when all you have to do is adjust the speed every now and then to keep up.

In the meanwhile I’ll have to be content with listening to the rain fall slowly from the sky and feel the cool breeze float in from outside.

Tuesday Afternoon


Normally I would have at least one other post put up here other than the quote or thought of the day.  Emphasis is placed on normally”.  Today isn’t “normal“.  In fact, it was down right coooooooool when I went to work in the wee hours of the morning.  Given the fact that Miss C likes to point out the advantages to living on “The Frozen Tundra“, I thought I would kinda sorta psyche myself up for the coming season by posting a pic of some of the local colour that we will be seeing soon enough.  This warm weather can’t hold out for much longer and I may as well start to go with the flow so to speak.
