Wow, what a weekend. You couldn’t have asked for better weather. On the last weekend of September we get August heat. What did you do? I spend quite a bit of time outdoors either playing of working.
September! It is almost fall in New England. Maine conservation officials say they're expecting a vibrant fall foliage season. So it is time for the weekly fall foliage report. The reports will start on Sept. 10 and run through Oct. 25. So, what to expect…officials say that conditions in northern Maine meant that residents and visitors will likely see subtle color changes and low leaf drop.
I'm sitting here at home alone tonight when a breeze, a chilly one, blows through the window. It's 7 o'clock and getting dark. I remember, like yesterday, anticipating the longest day of the year, when it would be daylight until almost 9pm. What happened?
Well, the nights have been pretty chilly since early/mid August and now, although I love the crisp weather, I don't like what it ushers in. I don't like putting away and winterizing the boat and camper. I used the boat four times and didn't spend a single night in the camper. Soon, they'll both covered in a blanket of snow and ice....for almost 9 months! YIKES! That's a long freakin' time!
Summer maybe over as far as the tourist season goes but let's not discount late summer and early fall. I love September, not so much rainy days like these but over all I'd say September and October are my favorite months.
We're grilling today? At around 10:30 am every morning my wife and I discuss what we're having for lunch or dinner, if you want to call it that. Usually it's my big meal of the day because soon after I'm off to work, until at least 8 pm. Also, cooking a bigger midday meal leaves leftovers and makes it really easy to reheat later and feed the kids for supper.
