08:27 pm - Waiting for Autumn, Post #45
1) By this time in the subtropics the mornings should be dry and starting to cool.
2) Like, below 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
3) This year? [hollow laughter]
4) But the light is that perfect autumn light.
5) We've just passed the equilux, the 24-hour-period where sunlight and nighttime are equal.
6) (That's not the equinox, interestingly, which refers to a point on earth's orbit of the sun.)
7) Anyway, autumn light is glorious.
8) Soon maybe the humidity will be mostly gone.
9) Master Danger is ready, let me tell you. Poor little pink-tongued panting puppy on our sunrise walks, he's still too hot.
10) Mind over matter, I tell him. He ignores me.
11) Otherwise, I am ahead of the game -- already wearing boots most days.
12) Boot season = 6 months a year for me.
13) But I am behind on all other things. Projects, writing, watching television.
14) For example, Poldark Series 2 started this week here in the US, but 2 hours is too much right now.
15) 4 magazines sit unread on my kitchen table.
16) Netflix and Amazon series wither unwatched on my account.
17) Alas.
18) But autumn! May your autumn be proper and just to your taste. :)

Why are all the songs about spring when it's AUTUMN that is so delicious? This is a quandary. ;)

Hugs and a good weekend!

I love your lists. I can hear you saying them, with perfectly timed pauses. And I love your refusal to let hot weather dictate your choices of seasonal footwear. And I love how every time I say to you, How's Dog of the House?, you reply (with love in your eyes) "he's an asshole" or "he is just a dick."

hugs, hugs, and cooler temperatures! And time to watch Netflix!

I went through my stack of magazines last weekend. It was substantial :)

Here's to less humidity, hope you get it soon!

Fall is my favourite season, and today the weather was PERFECT -- sunny but crisp, ideal walking weather. Poor Master Danger, the cooler weather can't come soon enough.

Autumn is coming...it has to...

Actually, it seems to have arrived here while I was down in SoCal for the weekend for the first October bookfair. Lovely, lovely coolness and we had an actual fire in the fireplace last night! So hugs to you and his lordship and sending you virtual cool winds.

I hope you've had a great taste of autumn, ALH, and I hope that the bookfair season is treating you right! :)

Bookfair season has been madness...we're at the end of our 8-day break at home for the entire month.

But we had three and a half days of soaking rain without the winds that you and rainkatt have had to endure.
