The Rain

Last night it rained so hard that from inside, it sounded like wind in the trees. Water swept off the roof in sheets.
We were in the relaxation phase of Jilda's yoga class, and she turned the soft music up a little because the sound of so much water in such a short time was disquieting.
But she's gifted with a soothing voice, and when coupled with soft music, I soon hovered in a place somewhere between being asleep and awake.
After class, when I walked outside to load up the mats, most of the clouds had passed on to the southeast and between the remaining scattered clouds, the stars looked as though I were seeing them through a veil. I could tell the temperature had dropped noticeably.
This morning I got an early start on a story I've been writing and rewriting for a week now. I took my coffee to the screened porch, but I had to step inside and put on a long-sleeved shirt.
This evening I had to fetch supper because Jilda was working, and on the way to the restaurant, I found myself turning the heater in my truck on low for the first time since February.
We're playing this weekend at the Bankhead House Amphitheater in Jasper. The highs will be in the 70s, but sense we're playing in the afternoon, I might have to wear a sweater.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised, autumn arrives officially in less than four days. We'll be wishing each other a Merry Christmas before we know it.


  1. You and Jilda make a lovely couple.
    It's hot here in BC I guess we begin summer late so we finish summer late too. lol

  2. This summer went far too fast for me. I love the four seasons of Utah's climes, but I prefer cold into warm spring than the other way around. ... yet happy autumn!

  3. Christmas?!!? Not yet, not yet! LOL!! Take care
