I am aware that we are well on our way to October, but this summer was hot. And there was no rain to bring periodic relief. (We are more than 26 inches behind in rain.) The trees look like fall, and we don't get 'fall colors' around here without a nasty, nasty drought. Somehow, they're not pretty.
The evenings are becoming quite comfortable, and the days are warm, but not so bad.
Recently, we have enjoyed evening walks around our neighborhood - sometimes walking to the snowcone stand at the edge of our neighborhood. We love it, and Olive loves it ... and it gets us and Zoe out. So despite rumors of fall, we are enjoying some great outdoor time.
