Dusk was coming on by the time I got home, as the days are now noticeably shorter. Summer is passing, not too quickly for my comfort but a bit too fast for my convenience. Soon it will be getting dark too soon for me to dawdle on my way out the door. But once the days get cool enough I won't have to wait so late to go out, so it should balance soon enough. In the meantime I've still got crickets to listen to when I get back, so having my outings shortened a bit is not altogether saddening.
But tomorrow (today I mean— I keep forgetting that I'm not getting around to posting entries until after midnight anymore) I really must go out in the afternoon, as the monthly banking needs to be done, and one of the stores near the bank has a few items I could use that are on sale this week. It is supposed to be a mere 84 degrees. I haven't been getting up early enough to be fully prepared by the time the well-timed bus gets to my stop, but the absence of 90 degree+ weather will at least remove one powerful disincentive I've had to deal with recently. I hope it will be enough.
