|Chrysanthemums out by our garage this afternoon|
Fall, perhaps my favorite time of the year. Maybe it's because my birthday falls this time of year. Maybe it's because the air is a bit crisper and clearer than it is at any other time of the year. Maybe it is the smell of autumn. Whatever it is, I love this time of year.
I got a reprieve today, I don't have to go into work. Viola! A leisurely lunch, a nap then a walk then to take in my favorite TV shows. I've been off schedule for the past two weeks.
I have to address another sympathy card. A former classmate and a grade school buddy of mine died suddenly on Saturday. His wife said he was short of breath. He sat down and died. Well, if you're going to go, that's the way to go. Of course he was the same age as I am as was my former neighbor who died last Friday. This is just another reminder of my mortality. Make every day count.
