Normally, at this time of year, the leaves are swirling about a cold, damp Moville. Not this year. It’s another bright sunny day today. Many of us are still in our shorts.

Another phenomenon is that it’s still mostly green. Some of the trees have a red or brown touch to them but they are still predominantly green.

It’s great to have the weather so far into October. The RocktoberFest is only 8 days away. Perhaps I should have booked some outside gigs.

There’s a good crop of blackberries this year too. I pick some from the garden to put in my cereal or into pancakes for breakfast.

Maybe this weather will continue. Maybe there won’t be a winter at all.

I haven’t put the barbecue away yet. maybe I could cook the Christmas Dinner on it.

Touch Wood!
