We pulled our two A/Cs yesterday. The steam boiler remains unlit, until there’s a cold enough period to warrant it. We might make it without lighting the boiler until the end of October, and if we are really lucky sometime in November. However, this Fall feels like it will be cold.
We’ve started the Fall gardening ritual, the trimming of the trees and bushes, and that starts before the multi-week leaf raking. We don’t have the trees; our neighbors do, and we get the leaves.
We are getting these last days on the front porch with the three birds, who very much enjoy a change of venue from their room.
