Welcome to another edition of Saturdays In Indy
I love this time of year!! I'm not a lie-on-the-beach-and-soak-up-hot-sun kind of girl. I never have been. I was born and raised in northeast Ohio, where 85 degrees was a considered a heat wave, and where we had more than 50% cloud cover during the year. But in October, magical things happened!
The colors of the leaves aren't quite as intense here in Indianapolis as they were in Cleveland, but they're still very pretty. The picture above is really from this area. Our back yard right now is ablaze with golds and yellows. The leaves drop later here, too, than what I'm used to, and they don't seem to do it all in one weekend which is how I remember it. That's nice because there is a lot of time to enjoy the beauty.
We're finally getting into some cooler weather here, which I love! It energizes me, and I feel less sluggish and uncomfortable. I won't even bother putting on a winter coat to walk to and from the parking lot at work until it's in the 30s. And I won't bother zipping it up until it's in the 20s and windy.
I love the smell in the air this time of year. The leaves on the ground, the crispness to the air, and the anticipation of cold, windy nights and the S word. Yes, SNOW. There. I said it.
This time of year at home brings both our wedding anniversary and my birthday, which I celebrated Thursday. I was at work, but when I got home, David and Nicole had presents waiting for me, as well as carrot cake. That's my favorite!
Thanks for letting me share my love of October with you!!
Until next week, enjoy your Saturday!
