We have had a couple of rainy, breezy days. The colorful trees around my place have pretty much shed their leaves. All that remains are the oaks, which are slowly donning their beautiful burgundy gowns. The tamarack in the bog just past my lane are slowly turning gold too.
When I drove into the yard at 4:30 yesterday afternoon, it dawned on me how dark and dull the place looks now.
I checked the long range (two weeks) forecast for my area a few minutes ago. Tomorrow is to be quite warm again, but the temperatures are going to take quite a dive from there on in. I just wish we would see more sunshine.
We have some family coming for a birthday dinner on Saturday. (Yes, I know it seems like that happens a lot here. My living/diningroom is 36 feet by 13 feet so we are best situated to feed a crowd. The rest of the family sure don't have the space, living in apartments and tiny little houses). That should be the end of the celebrations until Christmas. Lets pray we are all able to gather with our families.
