For the first time in the back half of the year it really does feel like autumn this morning…We are even feeling like the mountains I long for…
55.0 °F / 12.8 °C
51.7 °F / 10.9 °C
53.4 °F / 11.9 °C
What a way to wake up. Considering that for the last week and a bit we have been waking up to temps in the mid 70’s…I feel like I’ve retired and moved to heaven…opps, the Blue Ridge…
I like what Fred First has to say about the season in today’s post on Fragments…
If there is, as I have written, a “neither-nor” season as spring comes so agonizingly slowly, there is the autumn equivalent, still green while leaves sound brittle and senescent even before they yellow and fall. And a slow departure makes the transition a bit easier to get our minds and hearts around.
Days shorten. Life centers within walls. The smell of woodsmoke and wool blankets. Bring it on.
I can attest to all of the above except the wool blankets…They are not required around here…’Cause, where Fred can expect a high today in the 60’s, we will still be pushing 85 by mid afternoon. So goes fall in Texas.
