Raindrops!

We finally had some significant rain, even here in San Jose. What a joy to hear the rain on the roof, and what fun to walk with the cooler temperature and raindrops on things. Not many flowers are out now, and the roses I saw were looking rather tired and worn, but that didn’t stop me from taking my camera on my short 4.6 mile walk today and using it just a wee bit.

Happy Autumn!

Ah, my favorite time of year … especially when our weather changes and it actually feels like autumn as well. (Today it won’t, with temps in the high 80°s.) And if you are wondering, “the fall equinox arrives on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at 3:20 P.M. EDT in the Northern Hemisphere.” (Yes, I looked that up.)

Looking Back

A year ago today was the last day I gave oboe lessons in person. I had three students here in my house. We had no masks yet, but all my students were used to going first to wash their hands: I’d been having them do that for years.

Here, have some Thursday images, which are from even further back in time:
