My work week is winding down - just one day to go and the last two days not quite as long as the first two.The summer seems to be winding down too. After a killer hot dry summer we are having milder mornings and warm wet afternoons. Shoal Creek flows with water rather than lying cement barren. Green has once again begun to occur naturally around here. It's been months - since early May - that I have seen local, unwatered green growth. And the normal late summer evening sounds are back - cicadas and toads. The temperature will be in the low nineties when the kids go back to school next week - bearable for sure but still short sleeve weather - too warm for cute fall clothes. I wonder what it would be like to live in a climate where one really could comfortably wear fall clothes on the first day of school.
