A Gorgeous Autumn Day
I got home on Friday - to beautiful Fall New England weather. Crisp, cool, sunny, blue sky - perfect for a bike ride in the woods which we did on Saturday.
How quickly it's gotten cool and fall-like here. Seems like yesterday that it was 90 degrees, and suddenly we have 50's during the night. I love the feeling in the air of pending hibernation, harvest and peaceful snowy nights. The colors are magnificent, and a joy to see. I love summer heat and long, long days - but I've always adored the autumn season - it suits me just fine.
My dear DH has given me lot's of wonderful presents this year for birthdays and anniversaries. A new camera is coming soon and I came home to one of those round fire pits for our patio - I've always wanted one. So after biking we dragged wood onto the patio and built a lovely fire. We sat and watched it for hours, chatting quietly about this and that but mostly just mesmerized by the flames. I had marshmallows of course, and toasted up too many.
We solved a few of the world problems by chatting about them, and then a few of our own. Had a quiet rememberance of 9 years ago and how hard it was to be apart that day and the following days.
A peaceful, relaxing, just-what-I-needed day and night.
