Cloudy sunny day
Mix and match, change of seasons
It’s that time of the year. I know of no other place where the seasonal change in weather shows itself more than the upper Midwest of the United States. We can gauge our wardrobe and utility bills pretty much by the equinox and solstices, and those events keeping lock step with the calendar.
Many folks say that Fall is their favorite time of the year. I must agree, at least for this week, as we have temperatures in the 70’s with bright sun every day this week and the forecast beyond. But I like the frosty mornings as well as the cold rainy changes. Trees going from bright green fullness to stark gray branches. It does my heart good to see these miracles unfold before our eyes.
A small comforting fire in the fireplace has been utilized each morning before old Sol does his job and warms us. Funny to see the little children in shorts, shivering at the bus stop, then coming home, forgetting their sweatshirts at school.
Yellow and gold leaves are falling, littering the lawn, and although far less noticeable, the white pine sheds its needles and they are strewn all over the front yard and will make a gutter cleaning inevitable before the snows come.
Fall, another season. Another time of change. And we’ll be waiting to see what vengeance Winter brings. Predictions are for another mild time with less than the usual accumulation of snow. My friends in Albuquerque might have to make plans for a trip North this year to escape the long Winter cold.
Peace to all
