Week 37:5

Week 37:5

Week 37 is Swedish for the third week of September. It indicates that 71,15% of the year has elapsed. It says nothing about the September full moon, the noticably shorter shorter days, the slight yellowing of birch leaves, apple trees heavy with ripe fruit, and the preparations for the approaching winter. It gives no hint of cool mornings, grass wet with dew, or the smell of damp earth and and the taste of blackberries. Week 37:5 is the 5th day of the 37th week, which is today, which is a Friday.

This year week 37 put on an Indian Summer with temperatures close to thirty degrees during the day and evenings in the twenties. Sitting on the back porch in the dark enjoying the still evening is an unusual pleasure this far north of the Equator.
