A Windy Day

It definitely feels like fall/autumn around here. Even though we didn’t have a particularly hot summer here, the air still feels like it has taken a turn. Autumn is my favorite season, with spring coming second, so I’m loving the change in the air. It always feels like a new beginning, but maybe this comes from memories of school days :-)

Yesterday I went out for a while and got caught up in a bit of a gusty wind. It was both thrilling and startling. The winds are legendary around here sometimes, such as the time when the winds blew down our fence :-) If only I had had a kite yesterday.

When I came inside, I decided to do a bit of moviemaking. So here we have my fourth entry in my mini cam moments series. I didn’t get the impressive wind gust on video...of course ;-) Isn't that always the way? However, you can still see the trees dancing around outside.

The sound on the video is the washing machine chugging along :-) And our yellow rose bush is doing its last bit of blooming. Something has gotten to the leaves in the last couple of days though. All is well though.

It’s rather calm outside today. Think I’ll go outside ;-)

Have a great weekend everyone and to all of you in the USA, Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Autumn is my favorite season as well, with Spring coming in second. Here in Alabama it's beginning to feel like fall. It's 4:00 pm and only 69 degrees. I had to wear a sweater when my niece and I went to the movies. Driving back I noticed a tree trying to change colors. It's a rainy day as well, with the rain making the greens look so much a deeper color. It's nice having a long weekend! You have a great weekend as well. Is Labor Day celebrated in England as well? I don't remember thinking about whether it's a world wide holiday or not.

Thanks for the Labor Day weekend wishes. It's cooling here a bit too, believe it or not.

Vicy,
Thanks for dropping by!

Cen,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend :)

Judy,
It's great that we have the love of spring and autumn in common. Those signs of autumn are definitely coming through :) No they don't have Labor Day here. We did just have a bank holiday last Monday here though which is similar to our Labor Day in the US. So we both have that end of summer holiday :) Thanks for visiting me.

Jewelry Rockstar,
I hope you're having a great Labor Day weekend. And I'm glad that it's cooling off for you all there. I know how hot it can get :) Thanks for stopping by!
