Suddenly Sunrise {SOL 10-7-14}

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.
Turns out the changing leaves are not the only thing of beauty this autumn.

Positive Thinking Thursday {10-2-14}

It has been a beautiful few weeks here in southeast Wisconsin.  The weather has been so nice that you would swear that it was still summer.  I will take each beautiful day I can get because I'm sure winter
will be here before I know it.

The zinnias in my garden are loving the warm days and cool nights.  Aren't they lovely?
When I saw this on Pinterest, I knew it would be the perfect positive thought for this time of year:
So where are you planning on soaring to soon?

Have an amazing day!
