my favorite season
Every day this week I have noticed actual fall leaves on my path as I am out jogging. Last week there were only leaves that had fallen because of the extreme heat and lack of rain the northwest had endured this summer. Now they are the gorgeous colorful leaves that make me look forward to kicking through piles of them on my daily huffing and puffing excursions. The sun is golden and warm, with just that little freshness to remind us of what is coming and why we need to appreciate every last moment of this time. Though 80 degrees is forecast, it will be full of the slight waiting cool, a bitter-sweet reminder to us: take it in!
