Today was the first day in months I didn’t sweat through two sets of clothes a day while doing chores. When I walked outside this morning I could feel the first hint of fall, cool, crisp air and no humidity. I was born and raised in Iowa and have lived in Texas, Colorado and Kansas, and I will never get used to the humidity of the south. The animals felt it too. The goats ran to greet me when they heard me come outside, the rooster had an extraordinarily robust crow, the cats raced and cavorted beside me all the way to the barn, while the squirrels taunted them with their chatters and scolding from the tree tops. Relief. Rejuvination. Welcome Autumn.
