The cooler weather, although unusual for the last few days of August, has been a boon for walks and outdoor cafés. There seems to be an infestation of bees -- or are they wasps? I can't tell; we had to fend them off at the café yesterday and I've noticed they're flitting around my balcony.
Someone told me the other day that the Farmer's Almanac is forecasting a very cold winter and that he was planning to move to B.C. for the winter. No such luxury for me, I said, so I'd better buy some more thick socks and send in my order for hot chocolate. Meanwhile, I'll take it one day at a time, cross my bridges when I come to them, all the while being prepared.
