We have been plagued with an unusually dry summer this year. Finally it has been raining all day, and there is a HUGE glob of green and yellow on the Weather Channel’s radar and it’s a welcome site. I’m sure the farmers could always use some rain. The sound of rain on the roof also helps me sleep.
The weather here in Virginia is starting to cool down, as the Summer highway quickly comes to an end. Fall is now upon us, with a nice cool Atlantic breeze blowing across my patio. The sweltering summer days are finally over. Labor Day is a matter of hours away. The stores are already starting to sell Halloween supplies. Shortly thereafter Thanksgiving and Christmas supplies will be in the mix as well. Pretty much the remainder of the year is the last of the sand in an hour glass.
With the change of seasons, comes the York Counties first day of school. Along with that comes quiet throughout the neighborhoods and throughout the house as well. A much needed rest for my wife, I’m sure. My oldest Daughter will start 1st grade, then Matthew will start 4th grade, then John will start 7th grade… Advanced I might add, taking 2 highschool courses. I’m so proud.
Work… well… I think I should refrain from posting things about work at this time.
Recently I purchased a used metal detector from Craigslist. It is notEnou a Whites detector, but a Bounty Hunter. It’s a cheaper model, probably around $100, but will do until I get my new Whites XLT or whatever model I decided. This will happen next month, and I can’t wait.
Think I close this entry up now, I’m sitting out on my back patio enjoying the cool breeze; as the sun eases across the horizon and darkness falls upon us… another day will come, and with it comes more challenges. Approach each challenge wisely!
