I'm kicked back in the recliner this morning, a quilt over my legs (yeah, it's cool enough to need one) and a cup of coffee within reach. Kiddo has a swim thing this morning, but not until 10:00. So Mom has a chance to catch her breath this morning before getting in gear for the day.
Autumn is the theme for this week's Foto Finish. The temps have definitely fallen here over the last couple of weeks, so it feels like fall. But the leaves don't usually start changing until the first or second week in October. It was so dry this summer, it's not likely we'll have a beautiful fall this year. Last year we spent fall break in Missouri at my in-laws. It was beautiful there, the trees were spectacular. So spectacular that sometimes you feel disappointed when you look at your photos because you can't quite capture the grandeur of it all. But this shot came close.
I love the all the golden yellow with just the hint of the blue sky in the background. One of my favorite things about fall is the bright blue skies we often get. Not at all like the washed out pale blue skies the color of old washed denim we get in the summer.
