I grabbed my camera as I went out the door with the intention of taking a photo of some trees that are near my house at the highway entrance. I knew this would be one of the last weekends to do so as those gusty winds are what bring the leaves down. I routed myself so that I had run most of what I wanted to by the time I got to where I wanted to take pictures and then I sort of jogged along and took a few photos before I turned to home. The whole experience set a great tone for the day.
When I got home I whipped up a batch of these Bacon and Cheddar scones... particularly delicious after my run!
Taking these photos gave me the idea to take a walk up to the arboretum at the college on Sunday. While Sundays are generally my rest day, we have now entered the season where I often use it as a cross-training day or simply a walking day just to be able to get outside in the fresh air and sunshine... good for the body and the soul. Stay tuned for that!
