Riot of Color

Apparently I didn’t get enough of the fall colors from earlier this week.  Yesterday I went both to our local park and the botanical gardens.  The trees are a riot of colors in central Virginia and although the air was cool, I had a great time walking all morning and taking pictures.

Sunk Costs = Skyline Wandering

As I was musing on how to use today’s word, I did a Google search and found the term, “sunk costs”, a term I have not used for a long, long time.  Wikitionary defines it as “a cost that has already been incurred and which cannot be recovered to any significant degree.” Which explains perfectly…

Rake Leaves For Fun

One of the places we lived allowed leaves to be burned in the yards.  Our yard, while small, had a number of mature trees.  I enjoyed going out to rake the leaves and exercise in the cool air of fall.  We set aside a corner of the yard for burning the leaves; it was so satisfying…

Attributes of Fall

Fall is definitely on its way.  One of the attributes of fall is the various scents, from fallen leaves to baked apples to cooked pumpkin.  Or in the case of my garden, winter squash.  I started harvesting them several weeks ago.  They need to cure for 7 to 10 days before cooking, and tonight was the…
