This morning, I got up and cleaned the house and then grabbed my wee laptop and the dog and headed over to the coffee shop to catch up on emails, upload photos, etc. I wanted to sit outside and enjoy the weather, but I still needed to be able to reach the wifi connection and I had ole Gertie the dog, which meant I couldn't sit right in the sun, as she would be hot and drool...the joys of having an old dog....so I just copped a squat right outside on the grass, in the shade! Who needs fancy tables?
It's funny because I never take the time to just chill and sit outside and enjoy the weather, other than at home on the deck...it was so nice and calming...which was exactly what I needed. It reminded me of when I was in college and students would just hang out on "the knoll", a grassy open area right outside the student center. It's just nice sometimes to slow down the pace of your life, sit back and just enjoy, which I have to say it foreign to me. But..speaking of enjoy, while I was trying to document the above picture, I spied something....do you see it too?
I spy FALL!!! Look at the leaves!!
