Every year about this time I become more acutely aware of the change of seasons. The days are colder and the nights are longer. I like the changing of seasons because it keeps me in touch with that part of our world that continues on as it has all my life. It reminds me that there is something bigger in life that moves forward despite us.

Saturday was a nice day here with temperatures in the low 70’s, windy but warm. I spent the day outside doing yard work and getting ready for the winter months. We have a redbud tree in the front yard that badly needed trimming and I got that done and bagged. It felt good to be outside in the fresh air especially knowing that we would not have many more days like this.
Saturday night we were able to spend a few hours with our oldest son, Chris, just visiting and enjoying the opportunity to be together for a bit. We don’t get to see family very often and it is special to us when we do get together.
This past week has been busy with a lot of the basics of life. I saw my eye doctor as my vision continues to challenge me. I was given a prescription for new glasses and I got a new pair picked out and ordered. I look forward to getting them as the pair I have been wearing has not been doing me as much good as they did at first. This time I ordered the kind of glasses that get darker in the bright sunlight. I’m supposed to wear sunglasses but I rarely do as they are such a pain when you wear glasses. I don’t want to carry two pairs of glasses or try and put sunglasses over my regular glasses. So, I will give these a try and see how they work out.
Winter was beginning to feel much closer on Sunday when instead of temperatures in the low 70’s our high was in the low 40’s and it was damp and cloudy. I was glad I had done my outside work on Saturday as this was a day to stay in with the heat turned on.

This new week will be busy with the usual variety of appointments, grocery shopping and such. Also on Friday our younger son, Sean, is having outpatient surgery and we are taking him to the hospital for that. He is not married so we help him out with things like that.
It has been fairly routine days around here. Many bloggers I know write about their day to day activities but I’m not so sure there is much of interest in my days! I hope everyone is well and having a nice week!
