It probably isn't actual Fall yet, but it sure feels like it up here. Some say the Fall season begins September 1st, and some say something else. Personally it doesn't matter much who says what as there's a distinctive feeling, a crispier air, and the leaves in the trees have begun to change colors. That says Fall to me.

Even my friends down in Florida has noted the humidity becoming more tolerable. So we're beginning the preparations for Winter... Cleaning up and getting things out of the way so the snow plows don't crunch the unseen summer stuff beneath the snow covered roads.

Marti & I are making plans to return home to Florida. Once the cold becomes an every day event it's nice to be warmer. Of course, that's all a ways off. But we're getting ready. We stacked a cord of wood in the garage the other day. It used to take a couple of hours, nowadays it takes a lot longer. Everything requiring physical work seems to take longer these days. Maybe it's simply that I need more union breaks.

I've taken FaceBook and it's related applications off of my computer. I still have it on a back-up phone, but I don't use it as often, and I don't miss it. Life is settling in to something more like what it used to be a long time ago, and I'm loving it. Less snarky commentary is good. I figure anyone who reads stuff here is closer to having something decent to say.

Anyway, it's getting to be that time of year. Sorta like Spring cleaning, but more on the clean-up and put things away side. I hope everyone reading this has a fabulous Fall season, or for those down under, a fabulous Spring. It's a big world out there and wherever we are in it, there's stuff to do. I need more coffee. Time to wake up and smell the worms.

Spent some time by the water this evening, was happy to see some frogs, turtles, and snakes and such, not so happy to see all sorts of overgrowth of vegetation in the water. Not sure what that is about?
Still, saw something I rarely see,,,a hummingbird. You know how they zip about…While I was trying to get the gears going in my head, “is that a hummingbird?” stopped right in front of me and stretched out long enough for me to see, “That is a hummingbird!” and zipped off! :)

With the extra precipitation in the air we'll probably have a pretty snowy fall/winter/spring. Might hafta go find that old snowsuit I had 30 years ago.
