  Leaves twirl, spinning, soaring through the air and landing everywhere.

Their colors look more alive than dead. 
 Yet... this is it for them.

They're saying their goodbyes. 

Making way for frost and cold and snow and blizzards.  


 Sounds kind of dramatic, huh?    

It's no secret that this is my least favorite time of the year.  

Not necessarily because of the change in climate... 

 I kind of like the cooler temperatures.

  but  more because of lack of light.

Short days.  Ugh!

My daughter Lindsey used to ask why Gary and I were always in our pj's shortly after 6 pm from Oct through March.  I'd say, 'why not?'    

That's pretty pathetic, huh?

There are good things though...  

 Warm hot chocolate with marshmallows...

Scented candles and soft lighting in the evening...   getting caught up on television shows that I didn't have time to watch during the spring and summer months...  reading...


It's okay.  It's all the way it's supposed to be.  

I just need to adjust.  
And once that adjustment is made, it's not so bad.
