The year is slipping slowly away, and daylight is following the year,
less and less of both are in front of us for the next month or so.
This past Sunday morning seemed to give everyone a reprieve to the
steady loss of light, but by suppertime on Sunday, everyone remembered
the trick of daylight savings time. The cats and I were all fooled, it was
dark by suppertime.
I continue to enjoy my summer luxury: the hammock. But it's time now
to be fully dressed, no more shorts and bare feet. Long pants,
shoes and even a sweatshirt are needed to keep the lounging
comfortable. With the leaves both turning color and falling, I have the
extra treats of the golden maple leaves, blue sky and warm, warm sun.
Deer hunting season has started and I have started to fear for "my deer",
those that have become accustomed to MY coming and going, barely
paying me any mind. There is one special concern, not because of
hunters but solely for natural reasons. One of the regularly seen does
gave birth to a late season fawn. While it's always cute to see a baby, I
fear the same changes I complained about, the shortening and cooling
days, will be much more harsh to the little fawn than they will ever be to
I'm a softie, my heart breaks for those I cannot help.
