I reserved a cabin for three nights in October. Looking forward to a fall getaway! Lake Huron coast again…it was rough finding an open spot! Michiganians do love enjoying the outdoors (especially in the fall).
Fall cabin trips (and spring) have kind of become a “tradition.” In the spring, it’s a way of saying “au revoir” to winter ( or celebrate our wedding anniversary) but it’s even more special in the fall. Why? Fall colors, chilly weather perking me up, and pumpkins, pumpkins!
Seeing those bright orange round things just makes me giddy! I may not touch a pumpkin spice anything with a 10 foot pole, but I love real pumpkins!
Now that my ankle is feeling better – and weather is cooler – I want to start taking walks and hikes again. I get hot and sweaty enough at work! I like it chilly – or at least bearable – when I’m exercising outside. Hell, I took lots of outdoor walks last winter even in single digits. I handle cold better than heat.
Unsure what we’ll be doing Labor Day weekend, but I want to enjoy the lovely weather.
It’s been rough these past few days dealing with the grief of losing a good friend. Especially difficult today… but I’m feeling much better now. I hope I can be part of a good sendoff for him. He deserves nothing but the best sendoff on his voyage to Valhalla (as one of his USMC buddies so eloquently said in a Facebook post). Semper fi!
