Our remarkable weather is just hanging on! The forecast for the next week is more of the same. Our nights are pretty cold but it's nice sleeping temperature isn't it?
Our chimney got cleaned yesterday. It was the dirtiest I think it's ever been! Two buckets of black crystal stuff got hauled out!!!! I vacuumed the inside of the woodstove. It too was pretty dirty. I had to pull all of the filters out of the machine and order more.
My yard didn't get a nip of frost last night but the neighbour across said he did. Tonight we have the beautiful harvest moon shining in the east facing windows. It is so big and bright!
"Big Red", the Acer Rubrum beside the shed, is starting to shed her leaves. She is always the first to don her fancy dress, but it doesn't last long. The Acer Sucrum, the sugar maples, are nice and orange now. The younger ones are yellow. Soon enough the oaks will pull out their deep burgundy colors. They are the last to turn.
M. Got the little red suv fixed this afternoon. It was a simple repair, but he didn't have the proper tool in his arsenal. Our area has recently brought in a big penalty for loud vehicles. He was really feeling anxious about having to drive right on to the main street in the town to get to the garage! I talked to our elderly neighbour this afternoon and made a date to go on tour on Saturday.
My sore leg has greatly improved by taking it easy and having a slow walk every evening. Sadly my left knee is how feeling like bone on bone. When the right one started to get bad I had cortisone shots every three months for a year. For starters, I don't have a family doctor to get the process started, nor is there a clinic around here doing the shots. It took three years on the wait list to get the right knee replaced but I'm not holding out much hope for this left one.
I love September and October. Wouldn't it be nice if this weather held until the end of the month?
