a good day

You know it's going to be a good, no a GREAT, day when you can turn the furnace off, throw open the doors and windows and not be cold. It's like that touch of warmth before spring turns into summer, but instead it's fall changing into winter. One last time to wear no coat before having to don the winter duds. One last time to inhale the fragrant air before it turns to crystals. To actually feel the warmth of the sun on your face. And probably the best day for outside jobs, like putting up christmas lights, before the numbing chill of jack frost sets in and the hibernation period begins.

No kidding! A great day for lounging on the hammock after hanging up the lights. And for the last planting of tulip bulbs.

A great day indeed. :)

I didn't complain. :)

Amelia, though I don't envy your hot summers one bit, the fall through winter time is a different story. And I know you know exactly what you are missing here during the winter. :)
