Double Digits in Double Digit November!!

I cannot recall a warmer start to a November. The last couple of days have been gorgeous. My only regret is not getting out on my bike. My tube needs replacing and not surprisingly, supplies are rather limited. In a couple of days it will be a moot point anyway.

This morning, at around 10, I found myself with a couple of free hours between classes. Often, I would fritter away this time eating brunch, drinking coffee, watching YouTube, or focusing on some other waste of time. Today, with the weather this good, and too many projects to tackle, I decided to take care of some outdoor tasks.

Yes, those pesky leaves have fallen and they need raking. It was so nice to be outside working in a t-shirt and bare hands. In years past, I am sure I would have had on a work sweater and work gloves (and maybe a toque) and still probably felt cold as icy water remained in the leaves. This time it was so different. It was still a task, but not one that bothered me very much.

Sadly, I couldn’t spend all my time outside. There is more to do as some stubborn trees are clinging to their leaves rather than letting them go. I will need to go out again and I doubt the weather will be as hospitable. At the appointed time, I returned to class, but at least I already knew what Today’s Perfect Moment was.
