#augustbreak: detritus

This is going to be my last August Break post, so that I can get back into writing more. But this is a wonderful way for it to end—with the old eavestroughs (US: gutters) finally coming down and new ones going up noisily around me as I type. They look like old bones scattered across the lawn. The roof being finally done is a huge milestone, and my to-do list gets shorter and shorter all the time. Note the leaves coming down from my neighbor’s tree. Maybe I can put up my autumn logo soon, after all. (Thanks, Onyi, for the idea. You have some incredible timing.)
