As I was running along the trail this morning I could see the small changes that were showing the hints of fall. The evil squirrels were too busy now to try to scare me off the trails, the turkeys were gathering, and there is something different about the sun. The sun is bright and warm. Chasing away the chill in the air. I can only describe the change as it has a different tint.... the warm colors that will turn the leaves is peeking thru.
I have a fondness for fall. The warm inviting colors always bring me in like a cozy cardigans. the crunch of the leaves, bonfires etc... are on the horizon.
So while I was avoiding the evil squirrels I thought back to what a fine summer I had. The highlight was that my niece and nephew had a great week long adventure and road trip with me. Gardens, festivals, lounging with books in the sun, all made this summer great My to-do list is a bit shorter but never finished it..... but isn't that what summer is for? Avoiding those lists?
