Too little sleep, no rich color change outside but a good day...
Saturday, October 11, 2014
I had a “freakout” night where I woke up a little after 1 and couldn't fall back asleep. I went downstairs to read until 3:30 and then managed to sleep 3 hours upstairs. Hubby is a light sleeper and he came downstairs to investigate, poor guy. Today was a day off from the gym so we wanted to go on trails to see fall colors. The colors are still far from their peak. First few steps of our hike we started talking about what we will cook for dinner when we got home. Last night we had round steak, rice, loads of pickles, and tossed salad. We liked it so much we wanted the same thing for tonight. We walked at a leisurely pace. Hubby asked if I wanted to walk a little extra at the end to make it exactly 8 miles, but my feet had blisters so I declined. It was in the mid 50s all day today. It got dark quickly and now we are wrapped in blankets watching football on tv.
Those are beautiful, tiny maple leaves in the photo, I didn't do them justice with my technique but take my word for it they were breathtakingly delicate. I don't know my trees; anyone know what these tiny-leaved maple trees are called? 2177 days ago
