  1. Where the heck are you? Oh right, it’s October. When I lived in upstate New York, we had to cancel worship one World Communion Sunday because of an ice storm that knocked out all the power.
    I also heard you and I went to the same seminary according to RM. It gets chilly there too this time of year. Have fun knitting.

  2. It’s cool down south tonight too, but not frost-cool. Wouldn’t mind if good ole Jack dropped by for a quick visit to wipe out this blasted ragweed! Not ready for him to stick around yet, though.

  3. ‘Tis the season. We’ve had a few frosty nights in our region, but it has been an unseasonably warm Fall. We have often had our first snow by Thanksgiving (which for us Canadians is this weekend)- but not this year.
    This is my favourite time of the year. The colour, the crispness in the air, it’s all good.

  4. Honestly, I’m mostly thinking of the oil bill, since I assume the cost of gasoline and heating oil will go right back up after the election. It’s 34 F right now, and the furnace is humming, and I’m wishing I had replaced the two windows in the corner of the kitchen where I sit and write sermons. I may have to seal them off with that plastic stuff, because even with the storm windows closed, it’s very chilly here!

  5. First frost advisory – wow.. ..
    down in the deep south we have a low of 53 tonight, with a high in 80s tomorrow. just noticing the leaves are starting to show that we are in fall.

  6. And here we are in t-shirts and shorts. I think it’s about 85 outside today. Like Preacher Mom, I’ll be glad when this dadgum ragweed is gone, but I don’t look for that to happen until around Christmas time.

  7. We are trying to figure out where to put the houseplants in the new parsonage. The cats like to nibble on them. So we like to leave them outside. The sudden shift toward the chilly has proven to be a challenge.
    Enjoy the knitting!

  8. Actually, my knitting at the moment is of the dishcloths for the church fair variety. But there is a sweater on the horizon. And we did see frost on our way north to a church meeting this morning.
