...it's starting to get dark early.
...it's starting to get colder.
...it's starting to feel an awful lot like winter is just around the corner. I turned the furnace on for the first time the other day because it was down to like 63 degrees inside the house, and it felt freezing.
I have a couple of fall/winter projects that I would like to get done in the house in the next few months, so maybe I'll get started on those soon. We'll be starting the new schedule in about 10 days, so that will give me a better feel for what kind of extra time I have around the house on work nights and such.
It's been a nice summer, but I'm sad to see it go. I don't like the winter very much, and I look forward to it getting warm again next year!!!
