While I would not say that the weather of late has been cool, I would say that it has been less humid and less hazy and less hot. Those combinations mean the heat index is closer to the actual temperature. The temps have been in the low 90s and high 80s for about a week now, which in Mississippi that means we are approaching fall.
Other indications include the fact that they are doing the second
cutting of hay as we speak, or I write. Or type. My
allergies are not too bad, as long as I remember to take my meds.
And stay indoors until the evening comes and all the dusty pollen is
laid down heavy with dew.
My doggies are especially frisky. They can feel the change
perhaps more acutely than I. After all, I spend most of my time
in climate controlled indoors, and they venture outside for longer
periods, more often than I do.
The biggest sign to happen so far was that last night I went to bed and
slept solid, with no waking for uncomfortable changes of sweated night
clothing...and I woke up this morning shivering a bit under my
sheet. I have two window units, one in my bedroom and one at the
other end of the house, in the kitchen. I did not have the air on
in the bedroom and the one in the kitchen was set on 2 out of the 15
settings, 15 being the coldest.
Some leaves have changed, but not many. We don't usually see that
happen until more towards the end of October into November. I'm
sorry to see the summer fading, though.
It does remind me that I have not seen my folks since last
Christmas. I miss them. I have no idea when I will get out
there again, especially with the price of gas.
I'm running on "low fuel" light lit up stage...and I've got several
appointments to keep this week and have no idea where I am going to get
a few gallons of gas to see me through. It frustrates me, cuz I
feel like I should have budgetted better. But then I remind
myself that I could not have forseen a hurricane sweeping through and
gas prices being gouged, neither could I have predicted that one of our
very strong team members would move from the state, leaving some
unattended business. Which I have no problems with any of that,
except now I have, ya know, no gas.
There should be an adapter that I could buy that would allow me to pour
urine in there. Cuz I got lots of that. Especially since
I've been drinking allthis juice, water, and tea.
