October


October mornings are different.

The sun is climbing into the sky later and setting earlier. It is really noticeable.

Last evening I had to race the sun to get the lawn mowed. I know some places already have completed their last mowing of the season, but I expect to mow into November. It is reassuring that the last vestige of summertime lingers on.

With the pool closed, I have been able to apply time to other house projects. Four posts have been installed around the fire pit. They will soon become light posts as we hang string lights from them to illuminate the fire pit and begin to turn it into an outdoor party area. We actually have electricity near the fire pit, a leftover from the days when there were lights for the horseshoe pits. 

With the leaves beginning to fall, I am already imagining cool Autumn evenings sitting around the warm fire with a glass of wine.
