The rain has been splattering at our windows for the better part of the week. I made the mistake of leaving the windows open when I left to run some errands on Wednesday, the sun had been shining when I left and I came back to rain and a floor that needed to be mopped. There has been a strong wind most days that has been blowing leaves from branches, a few ending up on our back porch.
It’s been difficult to evoke feelings of warmth in weather like this, I’m not quite ready for scarves and gloves just yet, I was hoping we had a few more weeks left of that deliciously cool, bright Autumn weather. I thought we still had time to go on walks and play in fallen leaves.
After Wednesday’s wet floor incident, we’ve been keeping all of the windows firmly closed. It seems as though there’s nothing to be done other than to hide indoors with tea and blankets, to hope that we’ll at least have a few more days of sunshine before Winter settles in for good.
