Sunny With Scattered Acorns


We've been experiencing Indian Summer here in New England; the weather has been beautiful.

In keeping with my own suggestions, we've been doing most of our schoolwork outside. But since it is October and since we live beneath a canopy of four White Oaks, we are pelted relentlessly with acorns.

On the bright side, the boys say acorns make for a great backyard stew. Posted by Picasa

Ok, I'm not in a cheery mood and since your so gosh-darned positive about this "Indian summer" I will tell you I can't stand it! I was all geared up for Fall! I was ready for crispy clean air and apple pie and pumpkins everywhere and coffee tasting super-fabulous and I even bought a new LL.Bean jacket that is comfort rated for 15 below! And what do I get? Humid icky air and the coffee tastes old and who wants to turn on the oven to bake a pie in this heat!!!? The sight of pumpkins seems odd and what do I get to wear? Ratty jean shorts and a pink short-sleeved shirt that were WAY over-worn this summer! No, thank you! I am looking forward to cooler days ahead.

um...I feel bad saying such scathing things about the weather in that last comment so I will now say something nice....Alex's stew looks fit for a King!

Patience, Helene, fall will come. And then winter and THAT will never end. I can wait!

I'll trade you your winter that never ends for my past 5 days in the 90's!

c.m.w. where are you?

In Texas, around the corner of the metroplex from nutmeg where the entire month of October, so far, has been over 90 degrees. But, we have hope, today's high is only supposed to be 88. Whoa, I better take out the kids flannels.

I take it you are further north?
