I mentioned previously that it rained a little on Thursday, and last night there was a bit of rain as well as lightning and thunder. And today it's nice out, temperatures only in the mid-70s. Evenings are kind of cool.
It's not even October yet, so even if cooler weather is approaching there's still the advent of the so-called Indian Summer to look forward to next month. And if the seasons hold, that will be summer's last gasp.
Today I took out the furnace filters and gave them a good cleaning. Even turned the furnace on for a few minutes; doors and windows have been open all day so that burned dust smell won't permeate the house and won't be present that first time I fire up the furnace for real. I've lit some candles--I like the ambiance, including the smell, of a room lit with candles, even if the lights are on.
I hope we have a long, wet winter.
