It's almost fall...my absolute favorite season!
The heat of the day has been slowly going away, turning a little cooler, with slight breezes...a much appreciated change for me.
Having the windows open brings a sense of calmness to me and to our house. Breathing in that fresh air and feeling the cool breezes slide in is good for my soul and the soul of our home. The house doesn't have to work so hard to keep everything cool, it can actually relax for a while, before it starts working hard in the winter months to keep everything snugly warm.
Sleeping with the windows open brings back memories of a simple childhood. The singing of the crickets and other insects lull me off to sleep. Waking up chilled is a pleasant welcome this time of year.
I won't be sharing a picture of the garden because, as with most Augusts, the weeds in the garden have won. When the heat is too much for me to tolerate, I simply stop weeding. But, I am happy to report that the garden doesn't stop producing. This morning I picked eggplants and tomatoes.
I did not get a fall planting done in the garden this year, but...I improvised...
A few late green onions were planted in the container with the cherry tomatoes.
And, I planted kale seeds in some porch containers.
Make it a great Monday!
