Bicyclist on a cold morning near campus

Bicyclist on a cold morning near campus

Walked to a coffeehouse last week to meet a friend for a cup of coffee and their breakfast enchiladas. πŸ™‚ The temperature was somewhere between 25 and 30 degrees  (F). I am still surprised how many people in Fort Collins ride bicycles in all sorts of weather. They just gear up for whatever nature brings on. I’m actually envious of their commitment to riding.

β€œThe resting place of the mind is the heart. The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside the silence of the heart. That’s where you need to go.” Elizabeth Gilbert
 
I took this image a week ago before all the winds swept everything clean. I suspect these leaves are somewhere in Kansas by now. Hope everyone has a good week!

We Call It Fall

Morning Frost

Morning Frost

This is the time of year when temperatures swing from near freezing in the morning then rise by mid-afternoon to 75 and short sleeves. We scrap frost off windshields at 6:30 am then have doors open by noon. We call it fall.

This pat weekend was lovely. Afternoon temperatures reaching the mid 60’s and nighttime temperatures down to freezing. The cold nights and humidity brought frost to everything in the morning. Saturday morning included some fog where I could not see across the pond. Continue reading »
