Adios, Señor Sol

Yesterday was a good day.

The weather was nice.
I handed in my last assignment for graduate school.
The sun started its march back to the southern hemisphere.

As some of you may know, I'm no great fan of summer. Autumn and winter are my favorite seasons, followed by spring. Summer is the season of lawn care, heat, and a million chores.

So yesterday, when the sun apexed for the year, I celebrated the coming of autumn. The weather even cooperated and gave us an autumn-like day. Though we still have 6 weeks of increasingly warm weather, the days are now shortening and summer's engine is beginning to idle down.
