|The wind piled up these leaves|
The picture was taken of the leaves in front of my local coffee shop yesterday morning. It was early enough that store owners and customers hadn't yet disturbed them. Although it's hard to tell from the picture, they had piled up almost to my knees. I walked happily through them on my way to the Y, and a man traveling the opposite direction playfully kicked some of them towards me. We had some fun with the leaves, and he was at least as old as me. Imagine two kids playing in the leaves, and you've got a little bit of the feeling I had.
The brilliant blue sky has lifted the spirits of passersby and my fellow bus riders. It's been a good morning. I learned that the weight of the pumpkin I showed you last week (here) will be revealed on Halloween, which is now only a couple of days away. We'll be hiking that day, and the forecast keeps promising some precipitation after three days of sunshine. Oh, well; I'll still have fun. Wonder if any of my fellow hikers will dress up for the occasion. You can never tell about us. Reminds me that I have a black cape somewhere in my closet.
