Catching Up on Autumn Days

It has been a really great day! Two walks - 4 miles each with another mile on the treadmill at the gym. I really should be doing yardwork but just not today. I'll work on the yard tomorrow afternoon. It is really strange leaf turning color time here in western Illinois - some leaves are totally changed and trees like the black oak in my yard are barely showing any reds or browns. We haven't even had a slight frost yet. Still, I see so many squirrels hiding away lots of nuts - who knows what the weather will be in a month!

I'm planning on walking lots this week. Friday I'm headed to Nebraska to visit my brother and his wife for a few days - making up for the trips Im missed last year (two out of state trips in one month).

What a terrific record. I'm doing about 1 mile, 3 times a week, nothing to post or brag about. Our colors here in central Ohio are about the same as yours. Almost everything is still green, just more pale, but a few of the maples are coming out bright red and orange. Really very pretty.

I have an ulterior motive. The walking and working on all the yard stuff is keeping me sane at work - we are going through major losses in grant funding.

And I'm making up for what I missed a year ago!
