The busy-ness of last week seriously hampered my posting time…which is not an entirely bad thing. Real life is always worth living in real time…not that the blog isn’t real, it just has to be shelved occasionally while memories are made.

This week’s view truly reflects the rapidly changing season. From deep greens and blues, to gold, russet and fire red hues…and finally, stark brown. Trees are stripped, the zinnias are dead, only a tuft or two of sweet alyssum have braved the hard freezes of the past few days. We’re in for the long haul…soon brown will give way to white and we will celebrate with all the childlike wonder and enthusiasm that even the most adult of us experience upon the season’s first snow.

Wishing you a happy start to the month of November. How’s the world from your window?
