to summer. It has been a pretty cool summer, cool like in temperature. We had a number of chores to do, so we took a day off to head up and work.
we stacked wood.
we cleaned the deck.
we took a nap.
and, I took a deep breath and went for a swim. I won't lie - it's wasn't warm ... but it was moderate. I swam for about 30 minutes before heading up.
we head into fall. the leaves up north are already starting to change, color-kissed by the grand Painter. stunning. beautiful. glorious.
after all the work today, we are kicking back with pork chops in the oven and a nice chardonnay in our glass.
these days, and weeks, and months fly by. I've lost my stop-time button ... and I think about how quickly this summer passed and I get a little anxious. my chest tightens. I need time to slow down. For Handsome Boy to quit greying around his muzzle and keep his quick step. for the lazy-hazy daze of summer to stretch indefinitely.
tomorrow is fall. welcome falling temps, falling leaves, and eventually falling snow. good bye summer. come back soon.
