I try to walk every day. We live in a fairly quiet rural neighborhood, with lots of streets winding around. I can take a different route every day if I want. I really enjoy looking at the sights. Join me? I pulled out the cell phone yesterday and took some pictures.
Signs of fall are everywhere. I really enjoy the scenery on my daily walks. On our street, we have this really amazing oak tree that boggles my mind. It's big, it's sturdy, it's leaning:
It's been like that forever, and at the base you can see where it's grown a wider "foot" to help it keep its balance.
Acorns are scattered everywhere as well. Folklore holds that when the squirrels don't collect all the acorns, it's going to be a mild winter. If that's the truth, it's going to be swimsuit weather in December. I mean .. really. Check it out:
I love the little hints of color that have begun. Soon, the leaves will be in their full glory (and carloads of tourists will be on the road):
There are still some gorgeous wildflowers growing because we haven't had our first frost yet (it's LATE this year). It's nice that we still have pretties to look at when we walk:
On one of the streets we take, the homeowners have this gorgeous bush .... I don't know what it is, but I LOVE the little berry-shaped "flowers" on it. If I knew, I'd probably get myself one:
Thanks for joining me on my walk. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
You Are Modest
You live a pretty quiet and traditional life. You don't need much to be happy.
You find contentment where others find angst. You are grateful for all that's right in your life.
Your happiest times are spent with those you love. You don't have to be doing anything special, being with them is special enough.
You aren't really searching in life. You've figured out who you are, and you accept yourself completely.
That's about right.
