Season Framed

Summer is passing by. I know it. Each morning as I'm pounding away on these keys condensation is my serious friend. Now I've felt the season of fall in Maine making its way into my life, but the visual of the wetness attacking the pane of glass on the porch door is a sure sign of fall. The moisture is pretty fast too. As a 'sign' of the season change, it beats the foliage falling and covering the lawn.
* a couple of notes-- For those of you rolling your eyes each morning when you see the length of my daily blog postings, you're in luck. Short postings over the next week or so. Details to follow.

Joanne's Helpful Hint of the Day-
For all you coffee buffs out there. Don't refrigerate your coffee. Hold it in an airtight coffee canister. Swooosh! No refrigerating needed. Removing the air and storing it in a kitchen cabinet is the way to go. I must admit her coffee today, Stumptown's 'Hairbender', was quite aromatic and delicious.
I'm off for another cup!


  1. You need not remind us. Waiting for the colors which will lure us into a false sense of well-being!

  2. What's sad for you is joyous for me. The difference a few thousand miles can make.

  3. So, you are in the West Coast Portland! Neat-o!

  4. It's too early for condensation!

    1. Heck up the other morning at 4AM and found a light coating of ice on thewindshield. Sheesh!

  5. I always enjoy your posts, which often have a familiar flavor also for us who grew up in another continent. By the way, we will never think of refrigerating our coffee!

  6. My neighbour had frost on her lawn this morning. Fortunately, I did not.

  7. I cannot wait for more signs of Fall, but I am sure you can.

  8. Autumn is definitely here. I haven't worn shorts in five days. Tonight it will get into the 30s in high ground.

  9. We had frost here on the ground when I left this morning.

  10. Thanks for the visual and the tip!

  11. It hasn't gotten frosty here yet but the trees - the ones that bail the earliest - have been turning color at breakneck speeds.
    How do you make a canister airtight? Suck hard at the edge of the lid and snap it shut? Is this a new way to get a coffee hit??
