September 5th, 2013

I’m really missing that extra sunlight from summer. Technically it’s still summer, but the days are getting noticeably shorter. It’s getting dark around 7:30 here and that’s just too soon for me. Even in summer there aren’t enough hours in the day to get done what I need to, but this time of year it’s a constant race against sunset.
Last night I mowed until I couldn’t see any more and I still didn’t get it all finished. With all the rain we’ve been having, yesterday was our only dry day. I was trying to mow the entire yard before the rain comes again, I almost finished the job, but not quite.

Are you noticing fewer daylight hours?
