autumn clouds have arrived
October 21, 2013
The past couple of days, the weather has been beautiful. There’s finally a crisp coolness in the air and the kids don’t come in from recess red drenched in sweat. In the mornings, I even wear a coat on my bike ride to work. It’s been all around extremely pleasant. What’s more, the sun is even hidden some days behind beautiful Southwestern clouds. It’s weather like this that makes me appreciate Phoenix. And thankfully for the next couple of months it’s only going to get better (cooler)!
The autumn clouds and cool weather have also helped spark an interesting friendship I’ve built with this elderly woman that sits outside her house every morning. I ride my bike past her house every morning on my way to work and she and I exchange pleasantries every morning. The other morning, she offered me a coat because she’s decided that the jacket I’ve been wearing must not be keeping me warm. It’s been nice getting to know our neighbors better.
