As the sun moves farther south and the nights get colder, our road turns into a magical place. It is well worth being up early to catch the sunbeams coming through the trees. September seems to be the best time for this. There are still enough leaves on the trees and the angle of the sun is just right to create this lovely effect.
Much as I love summer and count down the days to Spring during the long Michigan winters, I am never sorry to see Fall approaching. I will certainly be glad to see the end of deer fly and mosquito season! I have many outside chores which are on hold, waiting for cooler, bug-free weather.
Once next weekend’s show is under out belts, Twiggy and I can take a more relaxed approach to our training schedule, and once the ground freezes, we will both take the winter off. (I am definitely a fair weather rider!)
As predicted, our temperature has topped ninety today and we are very glad of our newly installed AC. Abbie, Brian and I enjoyed a good walk before the heat set in, and will be taking it easy for the rest of the day.
I considered doing some mowing, but a walk down the driveway to pick up the mail convinced me to leave it for another day! Supposed to be cooler by Sunday.
