The weatherman says two more days of hot weather and then we are turning the corner to cooler temps. Man oh man, this has been the hottest summer on record, I am so ready for fall this year! Don't get me wrong, I still love summer. I love everything about it; I love how the sun bakes my bones (it nearly roasted my brain this summer), I love sitting outside on hot nights under the trees (with sweat dripping off the tip of my nose this summer), and I really love moonlight cruises up the lake (but this summer's heat has kept us inside just like winters' big snows kept us cabin bound).
So I can't wait for that crisp morning air...
...and the turning of the leaves!
The crickets are beginning to lose their voices, have you ever noticed that? Toward the end of summer they quit chirping so loud. It's slow, but day by day there are fewer and the sounds of summer slip away.
The sumac is turning already, bright burgundy berries herald the start of fall here in the Ozarks.
Hunting season (just not here on Granny Mountain) was my Dad's favorite time of the year. He loved the woods and being out in nature, I inherited that directly from him.
This weekend...highs in the 80's, low's in the 60's and Razorback football starts... Woo Pig Sooie!
