Fall has finally…arrived!




The last couple of nights have been heavenly.  Temperatures have lowered during the day to the upper 70’s or low 80’s with very little of the hated humidity.  The nights are crisp and feel very fall-like. 

I get up early and walk the dog outside before anyone is awake.  It is barely sunrise.  This is the best time of day.  It is quiet and relaxing.  In the ground cover on the street the spiders build little slings to capture unsuspecting insects.  It seems that all they are collecting this morning are droplets of dew.  How fairy like they look with the morning sun shining brightly on them.  It is great day. 


I will be taking my vacation starting this Sunday in Southern California.  I am looking forward to the trip although I will miss the early autumn mornings.  Perhaps when I return in a week the leaves will start to begin their colorful transformation.  Red, burgundy, yellow, gold and orange, I can’t wait.

It's definitely much cooler here too - not that it's ever been hot for more than a day or two at the time this summer! I'm glad to hear it's more comfortable for you, Crystal - and have a wonderful vacation. I expect you're really needing it by now!

Love the spider droplets! Magical. :)

Up here it was 37 when I got up this morning! Winter weather, not fall. Whew! And Monday it was 90 degrees. Wild shifts.

Fall is my very favorite time of year. I hope it lasts a long time after this long hot summer. Enjoy your trip! :)
