Winter Park v2

I love this late October through early December time period. Tonight the weather stations predict the first frost will arrive. I pulled my echevarria plants indoors. They did well this Summer. I hope they will winter well indoors.

We rarely get spectacular falls here, as the lack of cold snaps means no sudden leaf brilliance most years.
We do get nice crisp mornings followed by surprisingly temperate days. It's a good trade-off.

I enjoy listening to the application on my droid phone. In particular, I like to set it up to play through my car speakers. I choose a 'radio station' similar to this artist or that artist. Today I chose Jonathan Coulton, expecting lots of songs by artists with a folkie/sci-fi bent. Instead, I got a fascinating array of nerdcore and novelty. Tonight I chose "Nigel North", hoping for a commute full of lute, but instead getting a classical gassical.

I have much to do. I have the will to do it. In the meantime, I have light reading, high hopes, and a bit of weariness.
