Καλό μήνα σε όλους Σεπτεμβρίου είναι εδώ


Kalo Minha - Good Month to one and all, September is here ...

Its happened again, I woke again with a shiver.

Still not enough for me to reach for a sheet, but the air temperature is cooling. Its a sign - {No need for anyone to run after me, with one sandal in their hand} (Life of Brian) that autumn days are nearly upon us.

The days that see the return of sheets, blankets, firewood ...

Yes it will soon be time to make contact with Yorgos, and the woodman to make, those precise  arrangements required for autumnal wood deliveries. Not too big, not too small - Move his giant elephant skinned hands backwards and forwards to the correct size required.

The 'to do' list gets longer: I need the long ladder, to fix that leaky gutter. A brush to clean the chimney, and to repair the woodburner vision panel window. A new blade is required for the trusty chainsaw. Take the time to resume the hunt for kindling supplies for the store. Oil the shutters, paint the grilles - find that ants nest, that causes me so much trouble.

Perhaps even a new (or secondhand) woodburner, if funds permit ...

All that to be done before the fun stuff, like collecting a few olives, and perhaps a tsipouro meze with friends if i am lucky.

Now all I need is the weather to hold out ...
