The End of September

Can't say I'm sad to see it go. It has passed by really quickly though. 

I am looking forward to October though. I love Autumn. It's my favourite season. I like the changing of the colours and I like the cooler temperatures. It's usually in October that we see our first frost and, while I don't like it cold, I love getting out and taking a walk and seeing the frost on the field where I walk. 

Next weekend we'll be taking our annual colour visit to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I wasn't sure we were going to be able to go this year. Money is tight and things are expensive. When I had looked at hotels it was going to be about $150 a night (3 nights) and I was sure that wasn't in the budget. We usually try to stay in the mini cabin on the campground (it has electric, a fridge, microwave and bunk beds) but when I checked (in late summer and a few weeks ago) it was all booked up until it closes mid-October. It's only $52 a night. I decided to check again last week and somebody must have cancelled! I was able to book it for the Friday and Saturday night but not the Sunday. Thankfully hotels for Sunday nights are a lot less and I managed to find one for $80. So we are off on a mini-trip!

I walked this morning. My friend was there so she couldn't have been too upset with me. She didn't sound it. We had a nice walk. It was quite chilly when we first got there, but by the end of our walk it was warming up. 

Not sure what we're doing tomorrow. Husband worked ten-hour days this week so he could take time off on Thursday to take his Dad for an appointment in another city. I think he's pretty tired so I probably won't nag him to go out in the morning. We will go out Sunday for a walk. The weather is supposed to be quite nice. 

Day 273

I'm still on frost watch, but there was a lovely mist over the lake this morning. It was really beautiful. The trees are beginning to change colour too!

Hope everyone has a good weekend!


  1. We are hopefully a couple of weeks away from our first frost but I hadn't even given snow a thought. We rarely get more than an inch or two but the whole country comes to a standstill.
