Walt coughs and then I cough. He coughs again and I cough again. Outside, it's dark. It's mid-October, and the sun already comes up late and goes down early. Even when the sun is up, it's dreary out. We have four months of this kind of weather and these reduced hours of daylight ahead of us. I'm not ready.
The weather forecast for France this afternoon: at least it's not cold out, but it will be rainy and windy.
It's raining right now. The fire wood is not getting cut. The garden is not getting cleaned up. I'd show you photos, but I can't — it's too dark for taking pictures, and I'm not enthusiastic about going outside. But I do have to go out today. I have an errand to run in Montrichard. Maybe that kind of excursion will boost my morale.
Meanwhile, I'll post a photo I took in Paris on hot and sunny July 5th, over at the recently refurbished Place de la République.
