Today is that magical day in early fall that I look forward to each year.
It is that delicate and precarious equilibrium point that creates a sort of evanescent Eden.
It is the weekend in which the grass has all but stopped growing and so does not need mowing, and it is too early in the autumn for leaves begin to fall and need raking.
So, really, I would not have to go outside at all today if I didn’t want to.
But that is the other wonderful thing about this transitional weekend. The weather is so wonderful, a person actually wants to go outside!
It is like winning the trifecta. Not only do I want to get outside, but I actually have time to enjoy it when I am out there, because I am not raking leaves or mowing yards.
Don’t get me wrong. There are still plenty of things that need to be done inside.
But when I am outside enjoying the weather, it is so much easier to ignore all of the things inside that need doing.
So, really, this is a quadfecta.
And I plan to enjoy it to the fullest.
