Indian Summer

 Last Friday, the fall sports teams had pictures taken.  Here is Johanna, the player, and Mom, the assistant coach.  William and Micah's soccer team is in the background.

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns"
– George Eliot

 We are enjoying an unusual, prolonged Indian summer.  It seems to me, if my memory is correct, that anything we've called "Indian summer" around here has lasted a day or two, not a couple of weeks.  We've had sunshine and temps in the 70s and even 80s for quite some time. 

Last night, John and I went out for dinner and ate outside on the patio with no jackets or heaters or thermal underwear.  Very strange.  But a welcome strange. 

The picture above was taken (with my phone!) a week ago near Johanna's school.  Around here, most of the trees turn yellow or brown so a red tree really stands out.  Simply beautiful.
