Early Birds: Edna, my Christmas Cactus, is jumping the gun.
Chaotic weather patterns continue. First bitter cold and heaps of snow. I busied myself baking bread and grumbling about the weather.
Now comes unusually warm days. Bright sunshine melts away the snow offering a last horse back ride of the season. In a t-shirt, no less!
This heat wave is simply postponing the inevitable, I suppose. Even so, I was glad to see a summer-like day. This time of year is always a little hard on me.
The nights are too long and the days too short.
I find myself pacing restlessly wondering what to do... What should I do?
Seems my passions run high in the summer months and are running on empty now that gardening and horsies are done for the season.
It was nice, though, playing hooky from work. Trotting along a quiet trail. Soaking in the last little bits of a lingering autumn.
While I was out there I decided to strike a deal with myself:
Right here, right now, stop whining about the weather, stop mourning the end of this sweet, sweet summer.
And, be on the prowl for a new winter hobby...
