Tuesday after the race

I will try not to think too much about the overwhelming wave of depression that normally happens about noon on the Tuesday after a Sunday race. For this moment, I am fine... sitting in my little home office, with a nice cup of coffee, and the ash tree outside my window is the most stunningly gorgeous shade of orange/yellow. It lights up this whole room.

I took this morning off work, I have a doctor's appointment at 8:30 and then I am going to get new tires on my car. I have never in my life kept a car long enough to buy new tires! Is this progress? I don't know. I know that I have never seen "buy a new car every 18 months to 2 years" on a list of smart financial moves.

Snow is coming tonight... so I better take a picture of this tree, by tomorrow it may be naked. Isn't that a wonderful analogy of life!

The first snowfall...wish that I could see that. And buying new cars isn't a smart financial move. So you're doing great.

It always sounds so cozy there! Quiet and peaceful. Ahhhh~ Yesterday my neighbor actually came up to my office window to call me out. Can a sista get a break I say!

I've bought more new tires than I can count!
I'm still in shorts and flip flops, but some snow sounds refreashing!
Please take care of your self....little summer squash :)

When took cocaine on Saturdays and Sundays, it was always Teusday I crashed mentally. I wonder if it's all those endorphines in your system?

London is now in grey and misty autumnal mode.

Have a groovy day. :-)

Better an ash tree than an ashtray.

I typically only keep a new car for 2 years, maybe 3. I hate not being able to trust a car once it's had mechanical trouble so it's worth it to me to take a financial hit.

If your tree is naked tomorrow, we know what your Thursday picture might be.

Sounds like Tuesday will be okay. Like Pam said, it's still warm here. I miss the maple trees from my childhood in Kentucky. They colors they turn are incredible. (I wrote is incredible. I am tired and need a nap.)
