Day 261 – Preparing for the Season

The back yard is trimmed and ready for a long winter.

And now snow is in the forecast.  I know, not much.  But still, a chance of snow.  I think this might be the first autumn in over a decade that I’m ready for the change of seasons.  I closely mowed my yard, put away the lawn furniture and trimmed back the grasses and bushes.  I drained the hose and took down the wind chimes.  We’ve put down the storm windows.  I replaced the screen door with the glass.  I am as ready as I’ll ever be.

It isn’t even noon and I’m inside, working on my school assignments and watching the crystal blue sky turn dark and gray with clouds.  Ready, Set, SNOW!
