Looking Forward to Fall



We have just had a very rainy week last week.  Z's camp was postponed much to her grave disappointment. It was just as well. We had a Black Rain signal where we saw many stranded in the office or in schools until late in the evening because of road closures (owing to floods and/or landslides).  Two days after the floods, we were hit by a super typhoon (Haima), which seemed a bit anti-climactic after all the flooding drama we had.  Where we are, it didn't rain very hard, although there were definitely very strong winds.  Because it was declared a T8, classes were suspended and C didn't have to go in to work either.  Yippee!

I love it when have we don't have anything scheduled for the day, when we all just lie back and chill.


The sun is back out again this week.  On our hike this morning, the trail was slightly muddy, but not too bad.  We thought about venturing up a trail that J and his scout troop did last Saturday, but decided when we got to that point to just shelf the idea for when the weather is cooler.  Hopefully, that won't be too long now.  I love shorts and flip-flops weather, but I am looking forward to having fun with my scarves soon.

Praying for no more flooding in your neck of the woods. We sure could use the rain though.

Gorgeous flower! Fall where I am means lots of colorful leaves, and then bam, a snowstorm, which happened yesterday!
