The autumn leaves drift by my window...

...though it's barely half past July. It's not just the cherries: I observe certain neighbourhood trees going yellowy, and Florence's copper maple down the street dropping its leaves in clumps as it tends to do when sulking. (Florence planted it some 40 years ago; she just moved into assisted living last month, but was assiduously gardening up to then.)

Not surprising if the trees are confused. Had the AC on for the last two nights because yesterday's high of 27 happened at 10 pm and its low of 16 at nine this morning: since which the temps have barely budged and we've revelled in (if you're me) or suffered through (if you're everyone else) a grey October day. Back to 28 on Saturday, with thunderstorms, again.

I was awake at 5:30 this morning, unnecessarily and unwillingly, and have been sleep-stunned and eye-achey all day. Partly due to the stress of losing a gold crown on my molar last night and having to get it replaced mid-day, but at least it got recemented where it belongs. Would happily go to bed early and forget clocks, but I have acupuncture tomorrow morning and must be up at an uncivilized 10 am. Never mind being invisible or able to breathe underwater, the superpower I want is to be able to fall asleep whenever I want and wake precisely when I tell myself I will.
