Yesterday we set out for a usual Sunday “out ’n back” with friends Gary and Ivy. An ordinary trip—but then, it’s autumn! Automatically extraordinary in every way: Glittering sunlight. Colors. Wind gusts. Snow. (Snow…?)
Yep. We actually saw more flakes than we did brightly-colored leaves. (But the trees we did see were doozies. Somebody call the fire department!)
