It's been dark and rainy for the past few days. Not that I'm complaining. I'm in the mood for fall, warm sweaters, and campfires so the recent burst of warm temperatures we've been having was not welcome.
Every now and then, I'm in the mood for a cool, rainy day.
The colors of fall are beginning to burst here in southeastern Wisconsin. You could really tell this weekend. The trees are tipped in red, yellow and orange. They know this is their last "hurrah!" before they drop their leaves and hunker down for winter.
Rainy days are to be expected as the season changes.
Yesterday morning when I left for school, the cool rain drops pelted my windshield. I drove in almost total darkness as the dawn began to break.
Almost to school, a bright light caught my eye in my rear view mirror. Looking back, the sun was breaking through the clouds, spreading a brilliant pink light as if to say, "I'm still here!", adding to the beauty of fall around me.
