My World Tuesday: Fire, Ember, Ash--the Blur of Autumn

October is a blur for me. So much goes on at work and at home with my daughter's sports and activities and school work that the beautiful autumn fires in the treetops become the cold gray ash of winter before I know it. When I was out for a walk on Sunday morning, the startling changes in the season were clear to me. She woke up with a temperature 9no surprise--102 kids were absent from her school on Friday), so all her activities for the day were canceled. Suddenly there was time for a walk and to take in the light. So it goes.

  6. Isn't it true? Wonderful you could see the benefit having a sick kid provided for you!

    I remember the days when a huge percentage of school was ill. I haven't had a cold (knock wood) in the 3 years I retired!

    The colours are marvellous. Our are still hanging in, gold, yellow, bronze, not so much red.

    Great photos.
