Turning pointPosted: October 26, 2012
Those persons are happiest in this restless and mutable world who are in love with change, who delight in what is new simply because it differs from what is old; who rejoice in every innovation, and find a strange alert pleasure in all that is, and that has never been before.

Most of the deciduous trees are bare now, their leaves fallen back to earth.
Yesterday was probably the last good day of the season to sit on the deck and relax, reading a book or watching the birds at the feeder or enjoying the feel of the sunlight without being all bundled up. It was shorts and t-shirt weather.
The cold is on its way. It won’t be bitterly cold. It’s too early for that. But our highs will be in the 40s, and it looks as though there is a lot of cloudiness, along with rain, snow showers, and the usual late October transition weather in our ten-day future.
Before it gets here, I’m out on what is likely my last bicycle adventure of the year. This is a scheduled post, filling in for me while I revel in what’s left of this year’s Indian Summer. Hopefully I didn’t get caught out in the rain. Even if I did, I won’t melt, and it’ll give the bike a good washing. I’ll be putting my bicycle away until next spring after this (unless another warm-up comes along that entices me to ride again).
Have a fabulous, wonder-filled weekend! I’ll be back soon.
Got back just in time to add this:
