It has really happened.
Becky is off for her first day as a Junior.
The house is so quiet.
The TV is off.
The boom box is unplugged.
No one is begging me to put music on their IPOD.
It's just the cat, dog and me.
And the rain.
The dreary, gray skies add to my melancholy today.
The whipping winds prevent me from yard work.
There won't be any mowing...
or putting flower beds to sleep for winter.
I'll do my work at church this morning,
and find myself wondering what to do this afternoon.
Of course, there are plenty of choices,
but alas, none sound as fun as
summer dips in the water,
or camping under the moon and stars.
It seems fall has arrived...
much too quickly this year.
Time to get on board
and welcome the new season with open arms.
Good bye to a whimsical summer,
Hello to what I hope is an amazing Autumn.
