It’s not as hot today, don’t get me wrong, it’s warm, but we’re in the double digits as opposed to triple.
The light is changing. When you live in Southern California the signs of Autumn’s arrival are much more subtle than in most climes. Mostly, I’m looking forward to spending more time outdoors, once the weather cools down a bit. We moved from a property with acreage to a small yard back in June. We’ve set up several seating areas outside. Now that the heat is on its way out we may even have a chance to use the fire pit again, we haven’t used it since we first moved in before it got so hot. Our front porch is shady in the afternoons, and a great place to watch the neighborhood kids fly by on their skateboards or bikes. Our backyard is small, but has a view of the Santa Rosa Plateau, and the sunsets.
Tonight we’re grilling steaks and I’m making potatoes and salad. Just kicking back. The one photo shows my two cairn terriers, (think Toto), lying in the sun after their bath this morning. Ah, what a life.
