Summer's Almost Gone

It's decidedly turning to Fall. Nights require a sheet and I can bear long sleeves. There's that smell, that dying vegetation-wet cold night- morning now smell, around.. End of the summer thunderstorms, the cloudbursts I remember from childhood Augusts in the Catskills and Adirondacks. Definitely back to school weather.

Fine by me. I hope we have a long autumn. It's been wet so the foliage should be colorful. If the leaves make it. Very glad I have a futon, I'm thinking I'll have NYC refugees at Peeper Time and maybe I can get Strider outta there for a few days... maybe for Halloween.

This will be my first Fall and Winter in the new digs. Really looking forward to annoying the neighbor with my decorations for Halloween and Yuletides. Maybe things won't be stolen from my door here. That'd be nice.

Fall's my favorite season. I've got a feeling it's all gonna be good. It's been a fiery hot summer but the smoke is clearing. At last.

I have grown to love this time of year. It is probably due to the fact that I can no longer tolerate the blistering, hot sun. Just loving this cool air.
