It's not as if I am so busy every day, but we are now starting to think about what we will be taking with us to California.
We are now in fall. my favourite season. The weather at the moment is just like Durban in the winter. Cool nights and sunny days. We are seeing some of the leaves starting to change colour and I am always reminded of the Keats poem, Ode to Autumn:
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness!
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;
To bend with apples the mossed cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o'erbrimmed their clammy cells.

I have enjoyed pottering around in our "garden" and even grew some tomatoes and peppers. Michael has a tiny patch of grass to cut too.

We did a few trips away, dry camping at Valens in the Spring, Lake Huron Resort and Galvin Bay Resort. Lake Huron and Galvin Bay are Coast to Coast resorts and as we are members of the organization, those stays only cost us $10 a night. We have already covered the cost of the membership in 3 weeks of camping.
