Indian Summer

8:22 PM

Last week it was 80 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday.  By Friday it was in the 30's.  Saturday saw rain in the morning and spitting snow in the afternoon.  Monday it was back in the 70's.  I love October!

I was out of town and had hubby cover the tomatoes and peppers that I hadn't had a chance to pick.  When I got home I bundled up and picked the ripe ones in the cold and wet.  I recovered the plants in the hopes they would be okay.  They weren't.  I pulled the plants today.  I'm bummed but I think we got plenty of goodness anyway.

I love the warm days and cool nights.  I love snuggling under the warm blankets with the kitties (because according to Bryan we have to wait until November to put the down comforter on the bed).   The dogs are loving the days because it isn't too hot for them.  We are getting back into a routine of afternoon walks.

I wish we had more red trees, but they are not as common here as they are on the east coast.  We do have beautiful yellow/gold aspen groves.  Word is that because of hot dry summer the leaves won't last as long and won't be as pretty.  What I'm not loving about the leaves is Henley bringing them into the house on his fur.

Hope you are having a fabulous Indian Summer too!

  1. Oh boo for waiting that long for the down comforter, I already have mine out because it is so snuggly. Also, I love the idea of afternoon walks, sounds lovely.

  2. We just got into the late afternoon walks and I know they are numbered. Once the time changes then when he gets home from work, it's too late.

  3. We went from 88 degrees to 64 degrees yesterday! I am so ready for cool weather and was a little sad to see we will be back up to 80 on Wednesday. Fall in the south!


I love your comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
