Chilled at last


Today it happened - autumn arrived where I live.

I went out the front door of the house to walk my XY7 to school and there it was. A chill in the air. It was like a splash of cold water on my skin. Wonderful.

There's no better feeling. It makes the day seem more alive. The air seems fresher and cleaner to breathe.

The first autumn hues are even starting to appear on the leaves of some trees.

I know that the new season really began days ago at the start of the month but now I feel it is here.

Inhale deeply and chill out!
