The thermostat has been in the 70’s and 80’s the past week or so, but the leaves are falling fast and furious. It is dangerous to walk outside my front door right now, cause whole boughs of leaves will fall and hit you in the head. It’s been windy so there are leaves EVERYWHERE. I have five big cottonwoods in my front lawn, which is now knee-deep in leaves, and my gutters are overflowing. I don’t even know if I’ll be able to drive my lawn tractor through the yard to mulch up the leaves! I was gonna get right on that job when….
My wonderful girlfriend called me for a boat ride. Yes, I said, I haven’t been for a boat ride all year! It was perfectly gorgeous outside. High 70’s, gentle breeze, good company, and stunning vistas of trees around all the lakes.
God’s work at his best. Thank you so much for this beautiful weather, and for putting on this colorful show every year! I am so grateful.
The leaves will always be there tomorrow. Today I enjoyed the view.
