Today was so beautiful - the kind of fall day that nearly takes your breath away. Everything seemed more alive at every turn. My library books were due today - seemed like a suitable way to spend a bit of time. Time to get out and enjoy the beauty of the season. And it also gave me the opportunity of a slow way home.
A few stops over the course of the afternoon brightened my day even more. Beauty was everywhere. Yep, even a cow in the pasture and a nail popping out of a weathered railing. A rock home, winding paths, dogwoods turning red, and more.
I went to the grocery store and found the prices higher than last week. Wow, up, up, up. Where will it end? A lunch stop at Arby's netted a roast beef combo meal complete with curly fries and a drink. Decided right there at the counter to get my lunch to go and I took it to the parking lot and munched while I read the last 100 pages of a book I had started. It was a low maintenance day - and gave me the opportunity for a slow way home.
