It was stunning. The light shimmering on the hundreds of delicate beads of water. If I were a diamond kind of girl -- this is what I'd want to wear. In fact, I find myself fantasizing about the ways one could turn Fall into wearable art! Would the colors be as breathtaking, say, in a sweater or shirt? Or is the visual power inextricably linked to the surprise we feel in seeing it appear in trees?
I took a walk with the family just before sunset, hoping for more magical shots. No luck despite there being plenty of spiders dangling from webs on virtually every available tree branch and limb. Ick.
Today will hopefully be delightfully slow. After some debate, got me the flu shot yesterday. The first I've ever had. Feeling a little punky though to be honest, a good 1/3 of my coworkers have been out with some virus or another in the last week. So I'll nurse this cup of coffee and then hit the couch with a magazine. We'll see how long the chilluns allow for such slothfulness!
