In other news, Luke was able to come visit just before he left for university in early September, and again during the week-long October holiday. This will likely be our last visit until the lunar New Year in February as China does not take any days off for Christmas.
The weather is getting colder, and as a Floridian I am not too fond of that. It's actually my least favorite time of year because the central hot water heating is not turned on until November 15, but we have fairly cool weather for about six weeks before that. Brr! Once the heat comes on our apartment is generally very pleasant, so I am certainly counting the days. However, we are also enjoying beautiful sunshine and clear skies...something I never take for granted.
