Wow, I meant to be more proactive and write more on my blog, but I certainly haven't managed it this week! It's been very hot and humid here in Michigan (still). We're waiting - a little impatiently I might add - for Autumn to arrive. There are supposed to be cooler temperatures on the way. I certainly hope so! I was hoping there would be a period where I wouldn't have to use either the air conditioner or the heat, but maybe not. There really isn't a lot to write about. I had good intentions at the beginning of the week, but the week is almost over and the intentions are still just that.
I have been out and about walking. I think I've been bitten by mosquitoes this week more than I have the whole summer long. I think they know the end is coming and are out feasting. Despite the heat there is a little feel of Autumn about. The green of the woods is a really deep colour and looks to be on the turn. There are one or two golden yellow and even red leaves around. Leaves are beginning to fall from the trees. I have to say this is one of my favourite times of year. I love the coolness of the days and the bright colours.
I've seen lots of these fellows around too! I think I could do a study in chipmunks. The only ones I'd ever heard of were Alvin and the Chipmunks. I didn't realise the animals were such characters. They really are quite funny to watch.
