barefoot in the grass
one last time before frost~
Today was a day of contrasts. It was almost 90 degrees (this is October in Michigan?), yet a stiff breeze scattered tiny elm leaves across the yard, making it look like fall. It was a day of “lasts” for me, I think- last tomatoes from the garden, last time to hang my sheets on the line, last lunch on the patio, and yes, last time to wander barefoot in the yard.
Tomorrow, the tide turns – rain is forecast, and a chill wind, dropping the temperatures into the 40’s overnight. So tomorrow will probably be a day of “firsts” – first fire in the fireplace, first time wearing a jacket, and, sadly (‘cuz I’m a barefoot girl at heart), first time wearing shoes and socks.
