Every year at this time I am amazed at how the weather dramatically shifts from Summer to Fall.
Overnight the temperature goes from warm to chilly once September arrives. It never fails though often once that happens we continue with much warmer weather into September and sometimes even October.
Soon we will be singing this song (Fall officially begins on September 22nd this year)
These dramatic sky shots were taken with my smartphone while in the car home to Vancouver from visiting my mom in the Interior of the province.
Once in Vancouver it was also cloudy and has been cloudy and a bit rainy every day since.
Before I left for a week to see my mother I put most of my potted plants in the shade and watered them.
They held up well but the season for growing is pretty much over, especially as far as pansies (violas) go.
I took this horizon shot yesterday.
Today is the first day back to school for all university students and anyone in grade school.
The weather forecaster predicted rain until around noon but I think it seems to have stayed dry. At least in my neighbourhood.
After the events of the past few weeks I am still recovering my energy levels.
I am finally going to meet a friend today.
We will see the new movie
(if you click on the linked title you can read all about ir and/or see a trailer).
I haven't read the book yet but I'm sure I'll enjoy the movie.
Update on mom: She has improved the use of her right hand/arm and continues valiantly to speak. Some days it is hard to make sense of what she is saying but I know she is working hard at it. I find if I just ask her a question she can answer 'yes' or 'no' and that way she doesn't have to get frustrated. I know she has asked for prayer to speak again and I've assured her that is what we are praying for.
Update on Eunice in Kenya: Eunice underwent surgery late last week and returned home yesterday. Thank God.
I don't know much more than that or even whether she can speak. I hope to find out more later.
Have a wonderful day everyone.
