In spite of the fact that it's mid August and the weather is still warm,
there are signs that autumn is just around the corner.

The official first day of autumn isn't until September 23rd,
but I smelled a hint of it in the air today
as we drove through the farmland between the Willamette Valley and the Oregon coast.

I felt the nearness of fall last week on a refreshingly cool day
that followed on the heels of the hottest day so far this year.
It was cool enough to enjoy a cup of hot tea in the afternoon.

I'm not one who wishes away my days, longing for the next season in the midst of the season we're in.
I love summer and am savoring every last day of it.
Autumn will be here soon enough.
