Clearing

We just had a sun shower. It was probably the last gift of the departing storm. The sky is clearing rapidly, and now sunlit flocks of birds are pecking at the wet earth and flying from tree to tree and chirping loudly. The air is decidedly chilly, though, and the late sun will not warm the house. I can expect the furnace to be running a lot tonight. I'm really looking forward to the next few days, which promise to bring perfect early autumn weather. There will be balmy afternoons and crisp nights, and it will be clear enough that I'll be able to watch the full moon next Tuesday night while drinking a bottle of brown ale I'll pick up on Sunday.

The storm was an excellent beginning to the season, washing away the lingering dust of summer and filling the day with damp, earthy scents. The moss that cloaks the mulberry tree's trunk and lower branches has turned deep green, and there are even a few pale green patches of fresh grass in the thatchy brown front lawn. The few cold nights have brought the first hint of red to the leaves of the dogwoods across the street. It's only a matter of days before there will be bursts of bright autumn color everywhere. Oh, and donuts. October starts with a big O, which demands donuts.




Well, the sun shower was actually about two hours ago. I got distracted and didn't post the entry. The clouds are now entirely gone, and there probably won't be much of a sunset. There will, however, be baked macaroni. Between the two, I can't say which I like best, but I'll take either.




In fact, the sun shower was now about three hours ago. LJ has been refusing to post anything for almost an hour. Stupid computers.
