How Is It Already November?

I bought this lawn chair at an auction two months ago for $2.00. I used to have one that we got as a Wedding gift 25 years ago and I hunted and hunted for it in the garage until my husband told me it fell apart a couple of years ago. (I don't remember it falling apart--I bet it's up in the rafters and he just didn't want to get up and find it!) Anyway, I bought this chair. Almost every evening after work, I've sat in it, catching the sun shine that hits perfectly there at 4 p.m., popped a Corona, put in my earplugs and read for about a half-hour before going in and starting dinner. Well, I think we're done for the season and I see withdrawal in my immediate future. I usually look forward to early Winter, shorter days, cozying up with a blanket on the couch with a cup of hot tea watching TV or reading. This year I'm dreading it. I'm not ready for cold weather. I just want sunshine! I keep thinking I need to put the chair away before we get bad weather, but there has been the occasional nice evening. We got a new schedule at work, tho, so I'm going to be working until 6 p.m. most nights. (That's another story for another time.) I guess I'll fold it up and find a place for it this weekend. And probably cry a little bit.

What a gorgeous tree!
We set a record of 69 yesterday, made for a good trick or treating. We'll put Halloween away today as a new storm system is coming in.

I do love the picture, but I get what you mean about Fall, and Winter, seemingly coming on so fast.
