So....


It's been a while since I've posted about the yard or the house. Probably since before school started. And as much as I've neglected those things here on the blog, I've neglected them in real life too. The house has gotten minimal attention, but the yard...not so much. Aside from a random mow here and there, I've neglected it.

I feel disappointed in myself about that, but there's so much other stuff going on at the beginning of a school year that I am generally involved in. Not to mention any work things over and above the usual or writing group events and business. And of course I have to rest in between in order to maintain the pace. So ongoing yard maintenance goes by the wayside. No weeding, little watering, no tending... I've even neglected the bird feeders during the week. Poor things.

I had high hopes of keeping up with that stuff, but it didn't happen. I've found that I can no longer tolerate the heat as well as I once could, so even when I did go out, if it was hot, the heat zapped my energy and I got less done than I planned.

But marching season is almost over, so life will get less busy. And fall, while here according to the calendar, hasn't quite reached us weather-wise. Any time now though. And I'm looking forward to it. It's my favorite season. Especially the colors--the reds and the russets and the yellows and the oranges. I guess I should go dig up my decorations and enjoy it inside until it arrives outside.

What's your favorite season?

Each season is my favorite a week or two before it arrives and the first few weeks it abides. :)

I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one who's abandoned yardwork in favor of other obligations! Unfortunately, my realtor has problems with this tactic. :)

Lara Lacombe said...

Fall is my favorite season as well--love the chill in the air and the beautiful colors! :)

Like Lara, I love Fall. Crisp mornings, stars shining overhead. And glorious color all over town.

Yardwork? What's that?

I'm like Regina ... I love all seasons, but for a little more than 2 weeks, but it does eventually turn hum drum and I'm wishing for the next. We will have a few days of Indian Summer with the temps up in the low 70's ... then back to the low 50's.

I'm doing pre winter chores - new skylight, actually the size of a camper vent ... but it leaked like an oversized sieve!! Putting hoses away, cleaning ice chests and all the other 'stuff' that has to be done before the snow flies.
