Awesome Autumn

This fall has been fabulous, hasn't it?  Perfect conditions for running, walking the dog, basking in the sun, and loving life.  I did this painting today as an ode to 2015's glorious fall.

Last year by this time, we were already covered in snow. Man, it is such a relief we're not getting a repeat of that nonsense.  Last year was such a struggle.  On top of 5 months of snow, my back decided to crap out.  So I couldn't even run.  Running is one of my key winter coping strategies!  And we weren't able travel anyplace tropical.  It was a dark, bleak, doughy time.

I'm already feeling optimistic that this winter will be much better.  We're planning a tropical trip.  It's still warm and sunny in mid-November.  Running is providing a steady stream of endorphins...  It's the recipe for success.  I'm ready to punch winter in the face.
