This afternoon the weather report said that tomorrow we'll have the first "snow shower" which means that while late, winter is finally here. All I can think is how little I've taken advantage of everything fall had to offer. Work got crazy, I had lots of side jobs, projects, and life keeping me so busy that I didn't get a chance to take a nice walk at a forest preserve to marvel at the beautiful colors of the turning leaves. I didn't get a chance to go apple picking (though I did come very close once). I didn't bake half the fall themed items I wanted to or take pictures of half the things I rushed by in a hurry to get somewhere, promising myself that I'll be back. And now it's winter. This is the only shot I got of the golden leaves and it was only because I couldn't help myself. I was on the way somewhere, I don't even remember where, and I passed this at the far end of a deserted parking lot. I just had to turn around. The lights gave the falling leaves an ethereal feel that begged for me to capture it. I took a few shots and left content that at least a small part of this year's fall will stay with me, at least until next year.
I love to tinker, be it in the kitchen with a new recipe or on the living room rug with a new craft project, so I started to keep track of my hobbies according to the room in my house they occupy in two blogs, one for baking and one for crafts. Now that I'm homeless and on the road I've started a new blog to keep track of my adventures. Feel free to look around and I love any and all comments, so make sure you leave one :)
