After 3 days of dreadful heat last night it turned refreshingly cool, or I should say cold as I stepped out of the shower and the breeze from the window hit my wet body. The day before it would have been blissful, this morning it was goosebump cold. Personally, I don't think the hot weather is gone for the season, but this cool respite is so refreshing.
As I stood at that bathroom window with goosebumps I saw yellow leaves beginning to fall from my neighbor's tree. Wow, cool weather and turning leaves all in one day. I do get excited each season; in winter the first snowfall, in spring the first sign of bulbs bursting forth, in summer the warmth of the sun and the glories of the garden, and fall is like a gorgeous painting of oranges, reds & golds.
I think I get a little over-the-top anxious to take pictures of leaves. I added Kim Klassen's newest texture, Autumn Burst, to the last image. Love the grunginess and the paper punch holes at the top. Kim always comes up with the best textures and most of them are free. If you haven't visited her site, and are the least bit interested in textures, go here.

Must go put on my "very casual" clothes to join Marti and Jim for I am sure an absolutely delicious dinner. Isn't it great to have friends to share a meal with on Labor Day.
