DeLuca’s Market, pictured here, is all dressed up for fall. I took this picture during an October visit to Boston. Our son lives just around the corner from this delightful market. I’m going back in a couple of weeks and hoping winter hasn’t settled in. Fall is nice, winter can be less than nice in Boston.
How was your weekend? Did you get outside to enjoy our beautiful weather? We tackled the piles of leaves, once again, knowing it would need to be done over again by next weekend.
Anything you want to talk about on this first day of a brand-new week?
Got allergies (sniff, sniffle)…?
I tell you — what those weanies on the Senate Finance Committee did yesterday almost took my mind completely off my runny nose!
The September Equinox
On the equinox, the sun rises directly in the east and sets directly in the west. This is true for both the fall and spring equinoxes. So on two days of the year you can find the exact cardinal directions of East and West by using the sun. The ancients did this when they set up their calendars at Stonehenge and the Mayan pyramid, among others.
The autumnal equinox for the northern hemisphere is the vernal equinox for the southern hemisphere. This must mean our friend Loon is welcoming Spring!
