Today was the type of day where being inside all day just wasn't an option. I know because I tried it. Deeply immersed in the deep cleaning I am presently giving the guest room... which happened as a result of cleaning out the attic... which stemmed from re-organizing all of my kitchen cupboards... well, you get the picture, don't you? Does this happen at your house too? Anyhow, this morning I set out to stay in the guest room until it was ALL done. I started out this morning by opening the windows to let the glorious fall breezes waft in. As I was cleaning and sorting I couldn't help but notice the crystal clear blue skies and the tree tops with leaves of yellow and orange. The guest room is on the 2nd floor, so we're in the treetops up there.
When I took a lunch break from all of the cleaning, Peanut dropped all sort of hints that she could use a walk. Being the good pet owner that I strive to be, I was pretty much obligated to take a break to walk the dog. So we headed out for a quick walk to the end of the trail and back. But, when we got to the end of the trail the blue skies and fresh air beckoned and we didn't want to come back so ... we didn't. We just kept on walking... enjoying the sights and sounds.
In a short while we saw our friend, Nancy, out in her yard.
She said she was about to walk her dog and asked us to join her.
Being the good neighbor I strive to be, how could I say no?
We walked and talked for 2 more miles and if we didn't end up at my driveway, I think I'd still be walking.
The autumn season offers so much beauty.
It's time to get out there and enjoy it.
