I hate to admit certain times of the year, I am one who loves spring and summer and start bribing Punxsutawney Phil early so as to get a favorable reading from the damn rat.
It's that time of the year leading up to the holidays, when shorts and sandals are replaced by coasts and boots. Warm weather has been replaced by cooler temperatures and unfavorable weather conditions.
Because of the change in the season and change in the weather, Michelle and I gathered up kindling and set up the fireplace by cleaning it out and getting it ready for the colder weather last night. WE are in good shape, just waiting for a good reason to throw a match on it and get in started for this season.
