I’ve been loving the weather this past week because it has been so autumn like with the chill in the air and the nights fragrant with the scent of wood smoke. We even had a slight misting of rain the other morning, which made the landscape shimmer. Even the trees are beginning to turn bright colors — well, somewhat for California. According to our favorite TV weather people, this weekend we will be experiencing temps of nearly 100 degrees. By the time you get around to reading this newspaper you will have taken off your wool scarves and will have donned a pair of shorts to sit by the pool to read what is happening in the neighborhood.
