the fall

The garden’s winding down and the long range forecast is showing cooler temperatures ahead. Moments ago, I ordered garlic for the garden, which will be planted mid-October. I’m afraid the summer may be over. It was a rather hectic summer with a lot of events and the weather wasn’t the greatest, so it feels like summer didn’t even happen. I only had the a/c on once. I guess I shouldn’t complain about that due to the cost of running it, but I think that goes to show how crappy the weather was.

I don’t mind fall so much and I’ve come to terms with winter, but I just love summer, so I’m sad to see it go. With it getting dark earlier, I find myself with more time on my hands, which is a good thing. So, I’ve been trying to tackle some things that I’ve been putting off and I’ve been doing a good job with that.

But, with the way time has been flying lately, I guess summer will be here again soon enough.
