Octember Feeling

leave a comment »

Our weather this weekend is feeling more like September than October, with temperatures warming near 70° (F) for the highs. The morning-scape today was beautiful, as the sun just started igniting the colors in the distance.

dscn5285eDelilah and I trekked the full circumference of our property before stopping to serve up morning feed for the horses. The air was alive with the traffic of bird sounds and the occasional distant dog.

Our sweet puppy was in a more subdued mood and refrained from answering any of the calls, which I greatly appreciated.

It was a precious autumn morning of the kind that soothes whatever ails you.

The kind you wish would never end…

I am pretty sure chances for more of these kinds of mornings are waning, regardless the ongoing warming-ization of our planet. As early as tonight, the forecast includes the words “showers” and “thunderstorms,” and then by the end of the week, the predicted high temperatures drop significantly.

Of course, the impending transition to cold weather is what makes mornings like today’s so incredibly precious.

And it is why we soak them up with such thorough all-encompassing exuberance.

We know Octember is not going to linger much longer.
