Lazy Lazy Weekend

Sunday, October 21, 2012

, , , 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!

    Got to love those cool crisp refreshing Autumn days. The freshness clears away the sweltering summer and prepares us for the sharp frosty days ahead.
    When I visited my son I found a cider made just of honey crisp. It was amazing, but having the apple itself is much better. more fiber. :)
    That's for sharing your lovely Autumn vignette.

    Wow! What an awesome day! So glad you could relax and enjoy it!! You deserve a day off! Way to score on the sheets! 1000 thread count? Didn't know there was such a thing. I just have my comfy old flannels -don't think they HAVE a thread count LOL.
    Have a great week!

    What a great day! Glad you took the time to recognize and enjoy it. The trees were gorgeous here, too... but it was 80 degrees during my run. Lotsa sweating on that course today. emoticon
