for the love of fall

Could we be having better weather? And our 10-day forecast? Ten good days. How miraculous is that? Sigh... Are there places where the daily high is a sunny 77 and the low is a crisp 55 all year long? If so, could I live there?

Lately? You get to wear tall boots and sweaters. You can work in the yard without heatstroke. You can eat things like soup and chili without feeling ridiculous (or turning down the air). You can open the doors and windows and air out the house. You can be enveloped by the cool, dry breeze. It makes me happy.

In other news, I'm painting my bedroom. It's my biggest room and has lots of weird angles. Been a bit slow going. I've been a little torn about the color but when I walked in this morning I was pleased. It seems so fresh and airy. You'll just have to wait for the finished product.

I have pretty much made it through October. What a hellacious travel month. So now I'm also giddy that I'll be home a bit more through the end of the year. And it looks like I'm doing a good job at meeting work's big October 31 deadline. Can you believe I'm done with about 80% of my work in Shreveport? Yea! And I get three (3!) office days this week so I should be able to get caught up on some other things.

The weekend? Good. The Boyfriend? Good. Hanging out with my friends' dogs while dog sitting? Good. Life? Good.

Multifaceted Gem-

Candice is a truly wonderful girl I'm extremely lucky to have found. It is amazing that we share so much in common and she is open enough to invite me to her blog! Not to mention its a hoot maintaining my perspective on shared events and now incorporating knowledge of her perspective. If you haven't guessed it, this is The Boyfriend. But I can't use TB as a sig- it seems to be taken by The Brother!

For now, you will be the Falcon... and I will be The Anonymous!
