Neighbors have loaded up with firewood. We smelled the first plumes then, I imagine they lit a brace to check the system out, say hello to a fire. But for the past few days, there's no smoke from the chimneys yet.

We decided to wait until the last minute. This way, our bodies can adjust to the colder weather.

Self abnegation. Say no to pastries. Cold showers. Thirty minute runs. Skip a meal. Shower every other day. Floss all the time. (That's right. When was the last time you flossed?)

We'll see when the locals get chilly.
