The Beauty of Autumn
Good morning to you~ I'd love to say this photo was taken here, but it is courtesy of Pinterest. We are seeing some color around, but just here or there, with no reason for the variation. I will say the trees in our yard show signs from the hail damage back in August; I am thinking those that are vibrant weren't impacted as much. When my brother and sil were in Vail last week, they said the colors were peaking and so incredible. I've grown to love the golden oranges of Aspens but do miss the red and purples of other areas. I am hoping in two years that we will be able to spend several weeks in Maine, one of our favorite states. Yesterday we spent time with our daughter and her kiddos; went to some friends for a simple yet yummy chili dinner, before they leave for the desert. They served Cinnamon Rolls with their chili-something we have never seen before, but she told us it was a local thing. I couldn't have one, but hubby said it was a good contrast in tastes. Hunter had a fun time playing with Bentley. When we came home, we watched the Voice and all I can say is that each season the voices keep getting better and better. Today, I am walking(I think)and also meeting a friend for lunch; later our girl and her kiddos will come over for dinner. Her man gets home tomorrow from Denmark; I know they are all very excited. It is cold this morning, 37 degrees, and rain/snow is in the forecast for later today. Winter has definitely arrived here and I'm not quite ready for it.
I hope you have a great day, embrace all that life gives you.
Blessings, Noreen & Hunter
