Last night we had our first rainfall in weeks (almost four!) and what a blessing that was. The temperature’s plummeted from daily highs around 26 down to well under 20. It’s almost chilly! And, oh the plants really needed it!
More than that, it was wonderful to take the dogs for their morning walk around the neighbourhood in the brisk morning sunshine. Now I’m back to virtuously planning out my fall courses. 88 and 71 students in the medieval and British surveys, respectively. Eep!
