Too Nice To Be Inside
Yesterday was just one of those days made for being outdoors. Though chilly (bordering on crisp), the sun warmed the day, beckoning me to the fresh air. My friend Kitty and I took our sub sandwiches and apples out to Devil's Lake State Park for a picnic on the South Shore beach. The sun bounced off of the west bluff, giving the russet oak leaves an orange cast and making the rock outcroppings appear more silver than gray. A late afternoon walk through my neighborhood revealed others' similar passion for being outside. With rakes in hand, they were beautifying their yards and preparing for the inevitable winter.
