I love autumn.
There is something about it's freshness and the changes that have yet to come. Coming from the tropics, I'd never experienced autumn until I moved to Canberra, and it's one of the many reasons why I love Canberra so much.
It's also a time when the daytime temperatures are a little less fierce, but when the sun dips below the horizon the temperature can suddenly drop. And I think autumn, more than spring or summer, inspires me to do stuff. Especially stuff around the home which has needed doing for quite some time. Painting, planting, cleaning, sorting, starting, finishing. Doing something about this wall, for instance.
But not this weekend. After the last few weeks of nine and ten hour days at work, I've been granted a few hours off tomorrow afternoon. I'm going away for the weekend by myself, but I'll be surrounded by friends both new and old.
Which I reckon will be pretty nice, don't you?
