After the summer's heat and drought, the month of September ended on a very wet note. Yesterday, there were nearly three inches of rain in my neighborhood. More is forecast for today. The backyard lawn is growing like it's spring. And my fruit trees are still dark green.
I know that the swampy warmth and rain won't last forever. In fact, a close look reveals the start of fall color on the fruit trees. Soon enough the cold mornings will linger and the trees will shed their leaves. But for as long as it lasts, I'll enjoy the lush green of my backyard.
I’ve grown weary of the daily Trump ignorance and mysogyny. I think that the void in GOP leadership is terrifying for our nation. I like to read (I just finished Winston Graham’s The Angry Tide), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… jack-o-lanterns, Halloween decorations, Fall mums, cool mornings, black cats, witch hats & broomsticks, cheese trays, You Tube hair videos, Fall sweaters, watching JT cross the finish line, my teal coffee cup, planning treats, sunrises, sleeping with the windows open, good books, visits with family, Ken Burns documentaries, and the feel of a sweaty workout.
