I’m not ready! Summer was too short. And too hot!
There is a change in the air. It’s warm but it gets dark earlier and there is a chill in the morning air.
Everything knows it – animals, people, and plants.
The cats are napping indoors (instead of the screened porch). It makes no sense. It’s very pleasant out there. They napped in the porch during the hottest, most humid part of the summer when they had the option of a nice air conditioned room with fluffy furniture.
The squirrels are stocking up for the winter (storing their treasures in the oddest places!).
The frogs have stopped frolicking despite the warm pond water and the fish are less active.
Someone (Peter Pan?) whispered to my tomato plants that they don’t need to grow up. I have a lot of green ones but they are not showing any interest in maturing. Sometimes I feel like that too but it doesn’t work for me.
Starbucks has gotten busier. Vacations are done. Teachers are back in school and everyone needs their morning “joe.” My coffee needs are the same year round. Hate the crowds!
A storm came up the east coast of the US this weekend wreaking havoc along the way. By the time it came up to the northeast it was far enough off the coast that we (who are inland a couple of hours) did not have any effects. Beaches took a pounding though.
We always seem to get a storm in the early fall. If we’re lucky, this will be it.
Hope you are enjoying fabulous weather wherever you are!
