A walk in the Leaves

Yesterday took a little walk through the leaves. I knew it was going to be raining today so I decided to take advantage of the lovely weather to enjoy the fall colors. I went to Starbucks and got some iced chocolate, it was that nice out, then went across the street to the walking path up to the local pond. The path is lined with trees so it provides great leaf crunching and kicking opportunities. My sister and I used to walk to school trying to find the deepest leaves to kick up as we walked. Yesterday's walk reminded me of those days. And, I came home with just as much junk in my shoes as we used to when we were little! It was fun to just enjoy God's creation and creativity for a few minutes in the middle of a busy day.

This was about as close as I could get and still get all the great crunching leaves in the picture. And, about as far as my camera would zoom and still look decent!

Andrew always wants to walk in the gutter and crunch the leaves. Now the leaves are just soggy and frostbit. Memories of socks full of leaves will have to do. Thank heavens I still have memories. Andrews verse is Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. Ps.118:1
