Life: Friday Ramblings


I'm still not quite ready to...
...give up the Summer!  I know that we're a couple of weeks into Autumn now, but I'm just not ready to let go!  Despite the Fall being my favorite season for several reasons that mainly have to do with my hair and the disappearance of bugs, I'm craving more time in the sun!

I said a final goodbye to...
...the season with a visit to the William Walkoff Dahlia Garden (link).  The first day of October was tough for me and I just didn't want to deal with it.  Instead I did something that I literally NEVER do.  I took an unplanned day off of work and spent hours exploring the Bayard Arboretum all by myself.  I wanted to take one final stroll through the dahlia gardens, look for migrating birds, and get some fresh air.  It really turned my off day into a great one, especially when I ran into a lively flock of Yellow Rumped Warblers.

Following the theme, we said PEACE OUT to...
...Optimum!  After dealing with daily network outages, we finally gave them the boot.  For literally the same exact price, we got high speed internet and lots of it!  It's only been a few days and I'm already less frustrated during the work days and so is my boss!

We'll be embracing...
...Fall going forward.  Mourning the loss of one season doesn't give any excuse to let another one pass us by!  We're starting off strong by going pumpkin picking with my in laws on Saturday.  Then we're jumping in head first on Sunday by driving off to our annual trip to Villa Roma in the Catskills.

What are your Friday Ramblings?

  1. It's unseasonably warm here, like 10 degrees above normal for this time of year, so it still feels like summer. I'm ready for the crisp days, just not the snow.

    Have fun pumpkin picking this weekend. It's one of my favorite ways to welcome autumn!

    1. We're experiencing the same over here. I have all my sweaters and boots ready to go, but it's just too hot to put them on just yet. I'll probably be wearing a tank top to go pumpkin picking tomorrow, which is just not how it's supposed to be!

  3. Did they have them red and white dahlias?
    Autumn is here, as we've been having cold weather and rain and we turned the heating on for the first time since last spring this week. I wanted to go out in search of new spectacles but I did not feel like it in the rain.

    1. I prefer the cold over the heat, but this year I didn't want Summer to end. Hope you're enjoying the crisper temps.
