I have a confession - I thought this blog thing would be A LOT easier than it is! I don't even want to look at the date of my last post. In all fairness, my computer spent a few days at work where I accidentally left it. .....Let's see....what other excuses can I pull out?.... Anyways, we are having the most amazing fall weather here. It's windy, it's cold, and there are leaves everywhere! I love it! We have some very good friends coming into town to visit. They're coming from Northern CA where I think they have been experiencing some very cold weather and were looking forward to some warm San Diego weather! Oh well - crisp fall weather it is! I really wish I had something like this in the front yard to greet them tomorrow...
