As I sit here ending my day I look out my window and see the first snow of the year drifting down and realized with a pang, I missed fall this year. It was my intention, the color came late and life spiraled into days and nights of taking care of my dad. I would not have traded the time I have got to spend with him for any picture in the world I might have missed but….. I am not ready for the cold grey days of winter. So before the day ends here is my last Ode to fall a picture I took when the promise of red, orange, and yellow were a few days away. Goodbye fall hello, snow, ice, puddles, snuggles, hot chocolate, Snowmen, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, New Beginning’s and sweet farewells. See it’s not so bad after all.
I love this time of year for many reason so today I am going to list 10 things I love about Autumn
1.Chilly mornings snuggled under the covers
4. Hot coffee
5. Afternoon walks with leaves crunching underfoot
7. Long drives in the country or the mountains
8. Apple Pie
9. Red, orange, yellow, brown and green
and last but not least 10. Homemade chili simmering on the stove
So… here it is, the Fall Post of Shame! Yes I am behind, failed, stopped posting when the going got tough, all of the above and a whole trash bag of excuses I could post if I were so inclined. Instead I am just going to brush myself off and start posting again. Not daily but at least weekly. After all taking pictures should never be about just catching something to post it should be about sharing the beauty that is my life.
