A Chill in the Air

It's decidedly *fresh* this morning.
A brisk 4 degrees outside, and a shivery 59 degrees inside. It's a good thing I'm the only one home right now to enjoy the temperatures. (I might be the only one in the house who enjoys it COLD.

Where has the summer gone?
In 57 days it will be November 5th.
Last year, on November 5th, it snowed, and it didn't melt until April. I'm not ready.
The morning glories are still blooming, the butterfly bush is still attracting butterflies. The pussywillow is still willowing.

The only place where I've seen leaves change colour is along highway 416 on the way to Ottawa... and that doesn't really count - it's almost another time zone, it's so far away.... :-)

Still, sweaters have been calling my name.
And I'm feeling the old draw of warm socks lately.
Another summer... on its' way out.
