AFTER A WET and thoroughly disappointing October, we’ve finally gotten to the pretty days of autumn.
The sky is clear blue with a few white puffy clouds, the leaves on the trees are gloriously colorful shades of gold and rust, and the daytime temps are in the 60s F.
I like everything about this scenario, so color me relaxed and happy in spite of what is going on in the world.
Nothing has been as I anticipated it would be this year, so why not have a delayed autumn? Maybe even a late winter, too?

WE’VE BEGUN TO carry some of the outdoor furniture inside, storing it in the basement like we do. Instead of taking one day to move all the outside furniture inside, we’ll do it in dribs and drabs. Rather like the way in which leaves drop from the trees in the fall.
We’re also talking about taking the bold step of ordering some new outdoor chairs and a rocker to add to our outdoor furniture collection.
I only mention that we’re thinking about doing this because the estimated delivery time for this type of composite Adirondack-style furniture is 3 months [or more]. Therefore, if we want these items by next spring [or summer], we must order them soon.
In other words there will be waiting involved; and isn’t waiting the subtext of 2020? And today?

* It’s up to you, my gentle readers, to decide whether the wait mentioned in the title of this post is for furniture delivery OR for the polls to close today ending [I hope] this dreadful presidential election. Comment as you see fit.
