Ah, These Early Fall Mornings...

Getting on the road at 5:30 a.m. has opened a whole new world to me. The drivers on the Merritt Parkway are just as aggressive at this hour - there are just quite a few less of them. The air is very chilly, with a hint of the dew that makes it feel refreshing and a real wake-up call for me.

I stop at the post office on my way in, and marvel that there are people there, already hard at work, sometimes with very funky music playing. This morning, it sounded like they had a '50's channel going. Anything to get the blood pumping and the mind working, I guess.

The sun hadn't quite come up yet when I got in, but a pale light was beginning to show behind gorgeous streaky clouds. I just love Autumn. It quickens my step, refreshes my spirit, and makes me feel alive and happy.

A happy morning to all!

Hi Ed - It's funny you should say that. Last night, while sitting and talking with Herb after dinner, I could feel that impulse to get up and do the next thing - and realized that I could just enjoy relaxing with him instead. What a novelty!

Hi Ginny - There is just something about needing to reach for a sweater or fleece - I love that feeling of pulling on a sweater and then enjoying the crisp morning. Glad you share that delight with me.

Hi Kathy - Yes, indeed. It feels good to be up and doing, even if the mornings are a bit earlier than I've been used to.

I hear you, I can also hear Autumn in NY in my head.  I need to reward you on your ever positive attitude.  You really do bloom where you are planted, as they say.

Judy - I am just grateful that I no longer have those horrid commutes into the Twin Cities and back home again.

Hi Barbara - It seems to me I've read that you only need about 4 hours of sleep per night... if so, that's about half my requirement to operate at top functionality. You must get a huge amount done every day!

Hi Ron - I hear you! In my corporate life, I commuted almost 4 1/2 hours Mon-Fri every week. Car, commuter train, subway in NYC.  And the atmosphere was very pressured. Really exhausting. I'm glad you don't have a horrid commute anymore, either!

Hi Valerie - Yes! So early, it's dark and there are stars still visible when I leave the house. I've been planning on getting some novels on CD for the ride, but I like your idea of working on my French. I love the language, and am always yearning to know more. Thanks for that!

Judy, I am so thankful that it has been as nice as it has as late as it has.  We have had nearly summer westher for about ten days.  That will change tonight.  But, I do love the color we have right now on the few leaves left after our windy few days.

We miss you.

Hi Suzanne - It has been a nice little respite, hasn't it? We're going into a few rainy days starting tomorrow, and the temperature will be more normal for this time of year. We're starting to see some color on the trees here, but there are lots of dry brown leaves on the ground now.

Thank you! I miss being here as much as I used to be.
