Changing Seasons

So many people claim Autumn as their favorite season. I struggle to see it in a positive light. Summer in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful. It is rarely too hot, it rains rarely, and the skies are often clear, displaying the beautiful mountains. The days are long, the evenings cool and delightful. 

Fall transitions right into winter. It is the beginning of the dark and the wet. I do love many things about Fall and Winter. My challenge is to live in the moment, enjoy what is up for the day, find the beauty in rain, appreciate the long nights, be grateful that I have a warm and dry home to snuggle up in. Live in the now, don't borrow from the future. Be grateful for the moment. Welcome the Fall.

That picture makes me want to walk down the road to see where it goes.

I love my road. It always surprises people that there are houses at the end of it.

I am am one of those Autumn lovers. To me it is natures way of telling us to slow down & get cozy for awhile, and Autumn still has a few sunny days, which are always beautiful with the changing of the foliage and the shining sun. But PNW winters are an entirely different story! From about Jan. 1st through May, that is a time during which I struggle to be grateful in regards to the weather. :)
