** IT'S "RAINING" LEAVES **

When I came downstairs to make coffee this morning, it was actually slightly sunny outside. The wind was blowing just perfectly to make the golden leaves fall and sway from my back-yard neighbor's trees, until they eventually landed in others' yards, including mine! But, did that bother me one bit? Of course not! I just stood at the patio door in awe and wonder.

It is now dark and gray and gloomy...again....and we are in for more rain. This month has set a record (already) for the amount of rain we've had in October, since records were kept, I think in the late 1890's.

If it hadn't been for the glorious fall foliage, I think I would be seriously depressed by now.
