I was reminded that TODAY is the big day: FALL IS HERE!
It is officially the FIRST DAY OF AUTUMN. Starts September 23rd and goes until December 21st this year (2019).
For the past two years we have lived in places where there are actual seasons and the planet differences are so obvious. Utah and Colorado.
We still miss the beaches of SoCal (always will) but this change in our environment has been magical. We have WEATHER and need to pay close attention to what the meteorologists report.
It is much chillier in the morning here in Colorado and the afternoons are in the 70’s. There is a breeze happening off and on. I wear a sweater in the morning and shorts in the afternoon. We live at 7,123′ elevation and this means we get the cooler side of things (as well s the sun being extremely strong!)
With the changing seasons there are so many events and activities happening up and down the Front Range.
Today’s morning walk started off with brilliant pink and orange skies. We live where there are a lot of trees and I’ve had to hike to an open viewing space to watch the sunrises which is good for me and Kona.
I got to that spot to have the gift of this sunrise!
Just an update on Zoey: she is doing better. We went to visit Beth in Parker this weekend and she was her old self again: bouncy and happy to join us all on a walk. The baby carrier has helped as well as the change in her food. I am baking chicken, rice, sweet potatoes, lentil and quiona. Shredding carrots, beets and green beans. She’s basically living at the Bellagio, including belly massages.
Randy and I went on a date to the Manitou Art Center (the MAC) where one of his co-worker’s wives was having her grand opening of her art. Her name is K8e Orr. You have to say it Katie. She OWNS that and even had her named changed to that.
The MAC is a place that all forms of creativity are taught and displayed. You pay a monthly membership and have access to all of it. They have a 3D printer, pottery, quilting, looms, carpentry, machine shop…it was overwhelming.
From their website, “Music, theatre, pottery, printmaking, and other loud, slightly dangerous and intensely messy events happen here daily. Locals and tourists alike flock to our galleries, studios, exhibition space, classrooms and delicious café. “
I hope everyone has a great Monday and great week.
