It Really Is Fall!

Finally, we are having "fall like" weather around here. After the terrible rains and flooding of last week, Mother Nature cleared out all the ugliness and left us with brilliant blue skies and temperatures hovering around 70. I left the windows open last night, and it was 57 in our bedroom this morning! Yes, I actually was shuffling around the house today wrapped in a sweater, with fuzzy slippers on. We didn't live here last fall, so I'm not sure if we will see the leaf changing spectacle that is so common in the mountain areas. We may be just a tad too far south for that, although we do have a few maples in the front yard.

The cats really love this time of year, because I can keep the windows open all day long. It gives them a chance to enjoy the fresh air and hear the birds. Neighbor kitty Olivia likes it, too, because she can have close-up visits (above, with Spider last night). The kitties are a bit slow in the mornings, when it's still chilly, but by noon there's enough sunlight streaming in through the windows where they can all find a good warm place to snuggle in for a nap (below, General yesterday in our bedroom). Hope everyone else is enjoying the new season! Especially you crazy people out west who are already getting snow!!!!!
