Daily Prompt: Crescendo

Well, here we are, on the Monday of the Opening Weekend of NFL 2017! Yesterday’s slate of games was the crescendo of the off-season, the long wait for the team’s next shot at a title.

It can seem like Autumn is better suited as the beginning of the year. School is starting. Vacations are done and it’s time to get back to work.


It’s coming!

But sometimes, September brings the blues because I know what’s coming soon: winter.


Summer is ending, and the cold and snow are on the way. The days will be shorter, far too short. Inside will be captivating.

So, it’s now that I make an extra effort to get outside and enjoy the last few warm-weather days.

  1. We can already feel it here in Laramie. I even had to put on a jacket the other evening. I will soon be heading to the storage unit to switch out shorts for thermals and my cold weather gear. Luckily it has not been like our first year here. We had a healthy dose of snow on September 11th of 2014. I do enjoy the first snow of the year and football. The Broncos play tonight, which I have been looking forward to. However, I am not eager to see the ridiculously cold temperatures. Last winter we had a day that -62. That was not much fun. Hopefully, I will have a chance to get some pictures of the Aspen’s changing colors before it is too late.
