Peak Color

Posted by Scott at 09:25 AM

I took a brief break from going through my office email to run a couple of Netflix DVDs to the mailbox. As I did that minor detour, I could not help but wish I could spend more time outside. It's beautiful! It's partly sunny and 52°F. The lawn is freshly cut, thick, and dark green. But the trees in the yard! They are yellow, orange, and red. Every year at this time I wish I could freeze this. I know it only lasts about a week or so. Soon it'll be time to rake it all away. Soon I'll be firing up the snowblower and the kids will be watching the morning news for school cancellations. For now thank you Lord for this gift!


It was only at dinner time that I realized there was no rush. There's no mail collection today due to the Columbus Day federal holiday. Duh!
