The cooler autumn temperatures have arrived here in Asheville. With the summer weather gone, we’ve returned to winter hours, though that has created a slight problem.
We walk twice a day—early in the morning and midday. During the summer, though, that midday can be as early as 11 am because Hu-Dad has us avoid temperatures above 80º. That cuts into his busyness time in his office since he likes to get most of his writing done in the mornings.
We won’t see the heat again until next summer. Our predicted highs are in the low 70s and even 60s for the next few weeks and will continue to drop into the winter. It feels wonderful, but Hu-Dad has returned our midday walk to the 1pm schedule.
We, however, are struggling with the change. Come 11 am, we gently remind—his word is pester—him that it’s time to go walking. Believe it or not, he tells us to curl up and nap some more. Crazy, right?
Don’t worry, though, we can be quiet while he works. Well, Siberian quiet. A little wrestling. A few chases around the house. Anything to let him get his busyness done.
Oh, look, he’s ready to go walking now. Something about might as well because it’s hard to concentrate. We don’t know what might be distracting him, but we’ll be glad to go walking with him. Even if it does mean we’ll be tired and have to nap later.
We’re posting photos on our Facebook and Instragram pages, but realize not all of you follow our social media. We thought we would share the photos when we post here as well. Enjoy!
