Fall Chores Are Apparently For Girls

Posted on September 10, 2016 at 2:30 PM

I'm not saying we're not going to have anymore hot days this year. I'm sure we will. But it's September and that means hunting season and that  means ... Fall! The mornings will get cooler and the evenings darker.

It's the time of year when a woodsman's thoughts begin to shift from fishing and swimming to work. The fall chores are at hand. Take, for instance, I took a full inventory of my firewood supply. I don't have enough. Unless I want to stop burning in February. But then March and even April can get downright nippy. I guess I better get Lori cutting.

Maple and Sumac leaves are turning red, popples and birch shimmer gold in the chilly breeze, and they're all falling in the yard. I guess I better get Lori raking again.

Eating is better in the Fall. We go from eating corn on the cobb in summer to hardier beef stew, from BLTs to meatloaf and taters, from tossed and fruit salads for lunch, to tomato soup and toasted ham and cheese sandwiches. Like I said, eating gets way beter in fall, I guess I better get Lori cooking, like always.

That's why I guess the best way to say it is ... Fall chores are apparently for girls.
