There was more than a bit of thunder this afternoon and evening, but I saw no rain at all. There was a bit of damp on everything when I went out back once about five o'clock, so something must have fallen, but I missed it. There might still be a bit of rain tonight, and there might be a bit of rain tomorrow, since the clouds are lingering, but I'm not counting on it. In fact I watered the back yard because some of the bushes were looking way too dry again. |
The oak tree on the next block back is shedding more of its leaves. Its leaves block the view of the streetlight over there, and each night I see a bit more light coming through as more leaves have fallen. Soon it will be glaring all night every night, and won't be hidden again until the new oak leaves come out next spring. I keep hoping it will burn out and nobody will notice (but me) but I don't think that will happen. I'll be squinting every time I go out back all winter, except during power failures.
It will start warming up again on Saturday, and then we will have balmy weather for at least a week. It shouldn't get too hot— just high seventies and low eighties for highs, and lows mostly in the low sixties— so I'll be able to have the windows open a lot, and get lots of fresh air in the house, and I won't have to be hearing that furnace cycling on and off, devouring my money. Looks like ideal weather for early fall, in other words. Oh, and tomorrow is the autumnal equinox.
I won't be going shopping until Sunday this week. I don't think I'll run out of anything important, as long as I don't get extravagant with the milk. Donuts aren't important, are they? No, I guess not.
