My String of Days
I thought maybe my photo today should be the essence of summer. I am thrilled that fall surrounds me and there's a chill in the early morning and late evening. So many leaves are on the ground in different colors. By my driveway there is a large oak tree that has been dropping acorns like crazy. Many times a day I walk down the drive and try to crunch as many acorn tops as I can, it reminds me of being a kid.
I grew up in Pittsburgh in a row house. There was one street in particular that was lined with oak trees. My sister and I would walk through all the fallen leaves kicking and giggling and enjoying the crunch because in the city numerous trees in one area are scarce. She does not remember these moments but I do.
I have quickly returned to my usual routines and our trip last weekend seems so long ago. Every day this week I have had appreciation for my coffeemaker who never fails to make a good cup of coffee. Hotel visits bring out gratitude. Today the kids are coming home for the weekend and I know the next 48 hours are going to whiz by quickly.
I hope you have a joyous weekend!
