Lovin' this autumn stuff!
We took a day to go up to our cabin. I will be teaching again tomorrow (Saturday), so we could only stay the one night. But we needed to get away and relax. And we needed to get up to the Colorado fall. There is still a bit of color on the aspens and cottonwood groves. And the wildlife are lovin' this time of year, too. From the cabin window we could watch zillions of chipmunks, and the jays and chickadees that inspired the "Winter" lower border, and a passing fox (look out, chickadees!), and one big yellow dog with a bandanna who was pretending to be 'wild' for a bit, until he decided to come in and curl up in front of the fire. There was a bit of snow, but it melts fast at this time of year.
We watched the playoff game on our very snowy, blurry TV. How can you not cheer for a team whose relief pitcher can dance like this?
The Red Sox did good - they will play again tomorrow night, and if they can keep it up, they'll meet the Rockies in the World Series! Woo-hoo!
