This weekend’s beauty was enough to make even the nature-apathetic like myself take notice. Both my soccer game yesterday and the one this morning were played under a bright sun, the temperature hovering in the mid-60s, and the trees pulling out all the stops for the finale of their fall performance.
As my game was wrapping up, I realized this may be the very last weekend we have to enjoy before Winter makes its own chilling debut. So when I got home I asked The Flying Crane if she wanted to go for a walk. Needless to say she had to take a few minutes to amply recover from that shocker, after which we spent a couple of hours soaking in some nature. Of course we also managed to work in a little shopping and some Mexican food. Because what’s a walk without spending money and stuffing your face?
While we were walking I took a moment to mourn all the leaves lying in the gutters:
Eventually that moment passed and I started to get VERY EXCITED about the next season: No, not winter, but Christmas! Take this as a warning of the dozens of Christmas decoration photos to come. I make it a rule to not put anything out until after Thanksgiving, but I made several purchases today that have already got me mentally diagramming out my entire apartment. My halls have no idea the decking they are about to receive.
