So glad to see fall! I'm lucky to live in a place where the seasons fall right on schedule with the calendar. I've never had that before in my life. On the first day of fall we literally woke up to summer and went to bed in autumn. We are SO enjoying the cooler weather.

Currently, 68 degrees F., partly cloudy and breezy. It is supposed to rain over the next couple of days. Which is OK by me. Sound like perfect soup and chili weather.

A perfect day! 78F, 33% humidity and not a cloud in sight! The temps are supposed to get near 84 on Monday but the thermometer drops down to cooler weather and autumn finally arrives, Thank God! I'm SO ready for cooler weather!

It's been so nice out today that I finally did a bit of yard work. This is my favorite time of year.

My favorite time of year too, Mud! The leaves are changing color and it's sweater and jacket time. I love autumn!

GMTA, Charc. I expect the colors are changing a little faster for you than us here in Virginny.

Nice to 'see' you again. Did you ever get that boat finished?

Nice to see you too, Mud! The colors here are right on the verge of changing, I'll be taking a lot of pics at work, we have beautiful autumn colors there! As far as the boat goes, we've checked it out thoroughly and it's gonna be a LONG winter project. We're gonna have to remove the deck and transom and rebuild it from the hull up. It'll be fun though! How's life on your end?

Cold, rainy and yucky here today. Made one batch of cookies (Oatmeal Chocolate chip The Ultimate Cookie )

and have another pile of dough chilling in the fridge to make for later. Black and White cookies

So at least the house will smell nice even though it is dreary outside.

Life is good. I got a real job a couple of weeks ago and have quit the part-time retail world. Of course it means I can't spend as much time here at DC or in front of a stove as I would like, but I'm dealing with it.

ICKY! We just got home for our weekly trip to Starbucks.. had to drive really slow. Thunder and lighting and at least an inch and half of hail and a very hard rain. It's winter!
