Yesterday I stood on the deck and watched the wind blow the leaves off the weak trees. Some of the remaining leaves are turning color, and the nights are crisp and cool. In two weekends my nephew will visit for annual apple picking. The driveway is covered with pine needles. My neighbor mowed the field last week. I need to stake the driveway for snow plowing.
The last time I looked it was July and I was at a concert. Then I blinked and I was at another one with a new friend. Then I blinked again and now it’s the end of the summer, autumn is really here, and winter’s around the corner. Wow.
