I struggle with autumn because it leads to cold and grey winters here in Ohio. When we lived in Overland Park, KS, we were shocked our first winter to see that the skies were almost always sunny and blue, sometimes with white billowy clouds. Unless it was raining or snowing, you could count on some good vitamin D. When we moved back to Ohio, it took us about three days of winter for us both to comment, almost in unison, that we forgot how cold, wet and grey it is here. It is not unusual to have consecutive days of 33 degree weather and rain. Rarely snow, which I would prefer.
So in my attempt to focus on the positive, I drove through my neighborhood and took some of the following colorful pictures.
And of course, we have to have the standard Halloween pictures.
This is my favorite picture. Unfortunately, we no longer have this tree, as it was in our front yard when we lived in Kansas. And the sky is grey in this picture, so I am guessing it was getting ready to rain or it had just rained.
I am a 40 something chick, married (to Motorcycle Guy, AKA MG) and raising three boys (Big E, Sous Chef and CJ). We live in the burbs, which I am still adjusting to, even after 11+ years, and counting!
