My favorite month of the year. Gone already. It doesn’t seem possible. There are still a lot of leaves on the trees, still a lot of raking and fall clean-up ahead. And yet, locals are already skiing, Election Day is just a week away, we’ll set our clocks back Saturday night, and Christmas ads started a month ago. We’ve already had our first freeze and our first barely detectable snow, but the temperatures the last few days have been in the 60s, with 71 and more sunshine predicted for today.
How did I miss October?
The older I get, the faster the days pass — just when I’d really like time to slow down a bit. There’s an explanation for that, something about each day being a smaller and smaller percentage of your life as you age. Whatever. The fact remains that I’m enjoying the ride and am in no hurry to see it end.
Each day is a gift;
don’t send it back unopened
