May I say I am trying to honor the upcoming fall equinox. I have the requisite bowls of apples and plums ( no good pears yet) artfully arranged. Well, they were artfully arranged before I started eating them.
The garden is glowing with black eyes susans and bright purple callicarpa berries. Even the leaves on the still fruiting strawberries are turning a beautiful red.
But, and this is a big but, it is back in the 90's again.
I have just hung up the light but cozy hoodie I wore for the final dog walk last night. Luckily my neighbor was over this morning to borrow the lawnmower and suggested I might want to take off the straight legged blue jeans and 3/4 length sleeve shirt I had on. " Have you checked out today's weather", she queried? I had not, when I heard the news I changed it up. I'm still in today's shorts, tank top and flip flops and I'm still hot.
So the pizza will be grilled tonight and the drinks will be iced. But soon the moon will be full and and we'll be celebrating autumn with a run under the sprinkler.
P.S. I was fooling around with some edits on the blog and appear to either have erased some followers or several of you jumped ship, all at once. I blame it on blogger because it's been a wee bit crazy lately.
