I love the fall. This year, fall was pretty much nonexistent, however, I have made it what I can. I am drinking apple cider, enjoying the colors of brown, orange, and green, colors that otherwise are not very appealing to me. I have also been spending as much time outside. Whatever I can outside of work. And I am getting excited for Christmas, so I guess I can't complain when the snow begins to fall. I have realized though, that as I get older, I do not enjoy the evenings getting dark so quickly. I wake up and it is dark, I am inside all day at work, and when I step out the doors to leave for the day, it is dark once again. When I was young, I never really noticed it. In fact, I think I actually liked it. Not anymore however! Maybe some fake baking will help! I would hate to have to resort to food!
This past weekend I went to Madison with Alyssa to visit Amy who is out there in graduate school. It was a blast. It was a dreary weekend but we enjoyed some great restaurants, spent a night on the town, and I experienced the best nap ever! thanks for letting me use your bed Amy! Just the break i think both Alyssa and I needed! We treated it as a vacation! And next week, Chaz and I will head back that direction to go spend Thanksgiving with the Durgins. Not before we get to experience a little turkey pre-gaming with the Bonnell's! Next week will include a lot of turkey! Mmmmm....more naps in my future?!?!
This week is busy but soon it will be the true beginning of the holiday season! Work will keep me busy, and tomorrow I am heading out with Laura to look at a Wedding reception site, and before we know it, the next weekend will be here! Bring on the turkey!
