Slippers are definitely in order today. And a hoodie. And maybe some mittens. But, under no circumstances am I going to turn on the furnace.
Today is the last day of August and there is frost on my (over-turned-but-at-least-it-is-still-tied-to-the-tree) composter. Ouch - I forgot to cover my tomatoes. Well, maybe not forgot, but I procrastinated because I could not believe that fall has come so quickly. It literally has fallen on us here in Rossland. I hope that maybe this observation is premature, due to my living in Vancouver for almost 10 years I am prone to complain about the weather as soon as it happens, so maybe I shouldn't worry about covering the tomats tonight because it might warm up again right?! Did I mention the forecast is calling for snow showers on Red Mountain (located slightly up the hill and to the left of our house) tonight?
Ughhhhhhhh, sometimes I wish I was gifted with a disgusting amount of "go get 'um". I didn't dry any of my herbs, nor do I know how, I have no idea when I should be planting bulbs for next year, the garden is still mayhem after the last few windstorms and there is a never ending list of to-do's inside as well. Some of these include: a new furnace, a hood over stove, a new water tank, replacing single pane windows...then there are the wants (like a garage) that I will not even get into!
So I guess I'll take the poppets to the park before I need a sled...I'll be the one in my Uggs complaining about the weather!
