, , , just what I needed after a pretty challenging week, with lots more to come next week.
We had sunshine with crisp temperatures, and the leaves are glorious right here in our back yard . . . bright yellow sugar maples, and an enormous old red maple.
I sat on the back deck, relishing the need for a thick sweater, and enjoyed it all: the light, the wonderful leaf smell, the crunchy texture of leaves under foot, the sound of wind in the leaves, watching single scarlet leaves twirl down from a bright blue sky, watching Charlie rolling on his back in the grass in the golden leaves just about the same colour as his fur.
There was a honey crisp apple. Some crumbly old cheddar. There was a cup of great coffee. And later a glass of red wine.
I've got brand new 1000 thread count cotton sheets on the bed, hurray. Is there any greater luxury?
(And yes, of course I got them on sale: need you ask?)
Best get to bed soon: I'll be setting the alarm for 5 am and heading for the gym!
