Tuesday was hot and very muggy.

Today?? Cold and rainy.

Don't much appreciate these drastic changes.

Here in Philly fall foliage peaks around Hollowe'en. Yet if you look closely so can see many of the trees have gone from emerald green to a more olive green.

Yesterday was HOT. It's still summer here. Temperature got up to 88, but it felt hotter. Had the A/C on full blast.

My horses have a good start on their winter fur. They will need showered down tonight, to get the sweat off and to cool them down, then stuck in their stalls with big barrel fans aimed at them.

A consistent ~20 or so degrees (F) above average is rough in all of us this time of year. The only good thing is that the days are shorter.
I am really tired of this weather. We went grocery shopping this afternoon and it was 93. According to the NWS, we should have one more day of 90+. Then it cools off with highs in the mid to high 80s. Big deal! I guess I may have to move up where my sister is in Wisconsin to get cooler weather.

Just kidding on the Wisconsin thing. Don't really want those winters on Lake Michigan.

Just ordered a few crocus bulbs to plant in the front flowerbed. Brings back memories of when I was a kid in New York. We had lots of flowers and I can remember sometimes the crocus poking up through the snow. Couldn't grow them in Florida but I can have them now.

We've been having a bad week. On Monday, our 14-year-old dog suddenly developed some severe weakness in her hind end for which our vet gave us some medication for her, but he said this might be the begging of her demise; on Tuesday, I pulled some muscles in my back at work on Tuesday, so I have been in varying degrees of pain with a lot of stiffness when changing positions since then; and yesterday my husband damaged our car which will cost almost $500 to fix. And this coming week, we are looking at spending almost $1,300 in getting our trees trimmed, and today we are having our front door put back into alignment, which will involve some trim work, and cost a minimum of $300.

We just seem to be going through a bad period right now, but "this too will end", I know! And at least the good news is that we are fortunate to be able to afford all the repairs, which I am very grateful for, at least.

katharsis -- Sorry you are having a bad week. I think life tends to be like that -- things seem to happen in spurts. I hope it does get better.

Everybody is mentioning weather. Our weather is still hot, but it is getting more bearable. I even was able to do some gardening and tidying up yesterday -- it was not bad at all.

NYgal -- I hope the weather settles down for you, and that your eye is feeling better after surgery.

Jim -- A frost warning sounds delightful about now, but we will survive our heat. So glad you are enjoying your new home!
