It is officially fall! Though the temperatures were still around 80 degrees this weekend, the autumn colors are definitely popping up all around us. I took Friday off in anticipation of a family visit but it was cancelled at the last minute.
Instead, my husband and I spent the day driving from Durango to Ouray and back soaking in the beautiful changing colors in the mountains. The Aspens are so gold they seem to glow! I only wish pictures were as beautiful as seeing them in person.
Saturday was spent doing some research and making a fun purchase (more details to come this week!) followed by college football (another sad day for the Hogs), shooting practice, and a late movie.
We saw End of Watch and as I could have predicted, my husband now thinks he wants to work for the LAPD. I much prefer small town mountain living (and the low crime rate that accompanies it). Plus I know he would miss this too much…
I spent today mopping the floor with my to do list…BOOM! I think 3 day weekends should be a requirement. I felt like I got a great combination of fun activities, pure relaxation, and getting stuff done all without feeling overwhelmed. Let’s start a petition to our congressmen shall we??
And as always, the weekend was also filled with sweet kitty snuggles.
Sampson always gets really needy right when I need to be doing something. Um, Sampson? I need to go to the gym okay???
Well that’s fine…he’ll just lay on Rockie instead.
Even though it’s only 5:00pm I’m already thinking about dinner…may just go ahead and eat early! Temperatures are supposed to finally start cooling down this week and I can’t wait until I can make soups and chili galore.
What fall food are you most looking forward to enjoying? Have a great rest of your weekend and I will see you tomorrow with my meal planning post for the week.
