I find it difficult to believe it is late July in the Midwest. The windows are all open with a cool breeze coming through the house and dinner has been made up of cool weather meals.
I noticed while washing dishes this morning that the ornamental grass just outside the window is already turning into that straw like appearance it gets in autumn! While I am always happy to see my favorite season of the year, I do like a resemblance of normal in nature.
Speaking of nature, since the window in the bedroom has been open at night, we are hearing the sounds of the coyotes. Usually they are from quite a distance but a couple nights ago it sounded like they were in the forest next to us. What is funny is when I mentioned to Hubby that the coyotes had awakened me a couple times, he said he thought he was just dreaming he heard them!
From watching Finding Bigfoot, I know that Sasquatch and coyotes sound very similar. Oh, my... and the forest is so thick this year one cannot see beyond the trees lining the gravel lane. I was going to re-read Monster by Frank Peretti but perhaps I will put it off until winter. :)
At that bright thought, I am now off to start a loaf of bread in the bread maker (to be finished in the oven). Yesterday I ground wheat but there was not enough time to make bread. The fresh flour went into the old Tupperware container and then placed in the refrigerator (where it stays in summer).
Fresh bread for dinner this evening!
