1. It's fall y'all. What's something you love about this season and also something you don't?
I'm learning my new climate. So far, I have noticed that the humidity is gone. I like that. I've also seen that the leaves are starting to turn on the trees. What don't I like? When the season changes, allergies (especially for my daughter) kick in.
2. When you think of the colors of fall, which one is your favorite? Is there somewhere you could easily day trip to see the leaves in all their glory? Will you?
Honestly, I'm not a fall colors girl. But I do love the color of all the goldenrod I am seeing (just not in my house).
Because of all the logistics of moving, I doubt we'll be going anywhere to sightsee. But there are many parks and trails where we can walk and bike. I'm sure we'll be doing that.
3. What's one thing you've let 'fall' by the wayside during this season of staying home and staying away?
Since our move, I haven't even pulled out my watercolor paints.
4. If you're wearing a sweater is it most likely a cardigan, crew neck, v-neck, or zip up hoodie?
Cardigan or crew neck for me. And I'm a big fan of warm cozy sweatshirts. And vests.
5. What's your secret to dealing with change?
Joshua 1:9 states, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed. for the LORD your God is with you WHEREVER YOU GO." I cling to that promise. Life changes, but God is with me.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I've been thinking about autumn colors because everyone is talking about them. Having lived more than half my life in either the tropics or a mediterranean climate, I didn't even think about fall colors. As a child, I don't remember paying much attention to the changing colors. Probably, that was because I lived among the evergreen trees of the Pacific North West. Every day of our year we had deep forest green trees surrounding us. Yes, there were deciduous trees, but my memories are of the Redwood and Douglas fir trees towering above me. So, per #5, I will learn to embrace the change of colors and (maybe or maybe not) learn to like snow in the winter.
