A Fine Fall Day

The sun was out today so I stepped outside our house for a few minutes to snap a couple quick pics of the colors on our front patio.

And I really mean a few minutes, since I've been fighting some sort of sore throat, running nose, headache sickness.  I even napped today, which is not something I do, pretty much ever.  Even as a small child I didn't nap, much to my mother's dismay.

I am thankful for fall, particularly on days like today when the sun is shining and the air is crisp.

That said, sometimes I resent fall.  Mostly because it means the end of summer, which is probably my favorite season ever, in the history of seasons (you know, all 4 of them).

The pictures I took today help me remember that fall is actually pretty sweet (as are other fall things like boots, scarves, eggnog lattes, chunky sweaters, and saturdays in front of the fire).

Don't these images make you like fall (even) more?

Also, the view from our front patio is pretty gorgeous.  I can't get enough of it.

Now excuse me as I spend the rest of my evening curled up on the coach under a blanket.  I'm better off not trying to write much with how I'm currently functioning.


  1. These pics are so pretty! I wish it looked more like fall in New Mexico, everything just turns the same shade of brown when it gets cold.

  2. Gorgeous colors and pictures!
    I love fall... I can't wait to do fall things all winter long (eggnog, chunky sweaters....)
    Thanks for your sweet comment. Good luck yourself on the GRE!

  3. Pretty pictures, I hope you feel better! I did miss summer this year more than most, it just went by so fast :(

  4. I am not a fall lover myself either, but I have to admit, the red leaves do make me smile!

  5. gingerbread lattes are where it's at! lovely images(:
