Katelynn, Sara and I went to the DFW Founder’s Plaza in Grapevine. The girls are out of school for this week. And the day is too beautiful to sit in the house all day. We watched several airplanes launch and land at the DFW International Airport. When Sara got “ants in her pants”, we had to walk around for a little bit before we drove back home for lunch.
For about a week now, I’m watching the leaves changing into their new colorful dresses. It went like almost overnight. And it seems that they are more colorful than usual, this year. I wonder, if all this good rain from October has something to do with it. While I waited for Sara and Katelynn to come home from school, I walked up and down to capture some photos on our street. A Mockingbird greeted me, when I walked by the neighbor’s house. She sang the song of Autumn and soon much cooler days ahead.
November will be very busy for us, this year: Today is the Witches New Year (Samhain); tomorrow we celebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead); on Sunday we change our clocks back one hour (Daylight Saving will be over); the NASCAR races are coming to town this weekend; Election Day is around the corner; than we have festivities for to honor our Veterans on the following weekend; Fall Break and Thanksgiving is later in the month; and then it’s time to get lights out of the attic, and buy a fresh tree for Christmas.
