As Summer turns into Fall

I took the giant tropical fish out of the windows of my house and replaced them with happy little dollar-store scarecrows and garlands of Autumn leaves held up with hooks on suction cups. The tree frog and tropical fish "Welcome" signs are gone from the front doors, replaced by other dollar-store scarecrows. And the spring-jointed crabs and flamingos on sticks have been pulled from the front lawn, replaced with...well, you've probably noticed a theme here.

I mowed the lawn for one of the last times this season, and ate a lot of now fully-ripe grapes. I also finally assembled the two Adirondack chairs that I bought many months ago and began painting in early August. Now I have a base from which I can stargaze, which will be nice since I have a relatively clear and dark view of the Southern sky.

In a few weeks I will be temporarily adding Halloween decorations to the mix, and then replacing them with Thanksgiving stuff. And after that it will be time to pull out the Christmas decorations. Time keeps ticking away...

This year has gone by too quickly, and they just keep seeming to go faster.

This work thing screwed up my whole summer again. I got to find a way around it.
