Out for a Stroll

Another beautiful day with sunshine and and a cool breeze. I felt like getting out today for a short walk. I didn’t go far but it felt good to get outside and breath the fresh air. I found more colorful leaves that appeared while I’ve been stuck in the apartment so I snapped a few pictures. I looked the mailbox while I was out and found my ballot waiting to be filled out and mailed in. I’ll do that in the morning.The deadline is December sixth. Hope all my Mylot friends had a good day and a chance to get out and smell the fresh air. The picture I’m attaching is the prettiest colors I found today.

I'm glad you were able to get out. We've shut up the house for the day as it's predicted the temperature will rise to 36C which is pretty hot.

@RubyHawk I've just brought the washing in and it's pretty hot there at the moment.

It sounds so weird, you talking about the heat and we’re talking about the cold. Actually summer weather sounds pretty good to me right now.

They are and they just changed from green. I don’t know the name of the tree.

I am jealous. You still have nice leaves left. Everything is brown or gone here now.

Most leaves here are brown that’s why I was surprised to find these near the leasing office. You can see the trees behind them are bare.

Those are beautiful trees! Glad you had a walk today! I had a great day. I started a new book today, and it is excellent! I didn't go out today except to the porch for the mailbox.

What book are you reading? I haven’t made the best choice of books lately. I just finished one though and started another. The one I’m reading is Mean and Shellfish by Tamar Myers.

@RubyHawk I read "Mean and Shellfish" a few months ago. I liked it very much. Not all the books in that series are the best; some can get pretty silly, but the one you are reading is good, in my opinion. I like the series because it takes place near where I live, and I recognize the sites mentioned. I picked some bad ones lately, too. I started "A Holly Jolly Diwali," and I made every excuse not to read until I realized I didn't like it enough to continue and sent the book back to the e-library. I just finished "The Noel Diary: a novel" by Richard Paul Evans, which was a beautiful story. It took place at Christmas, but I didn't feel the holiday. I had asked you in another reply before I read this one. I am reading a romance I have wanted to read for a long time called "One Day in December" by Josie Silver. I have enjoyed what I have read so far. I am still at the beginning of it.

@Marty1 the best book from the library this time was The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick. I've enjoyed reading it, I finished it today. I'll look for more books by that author. It was well written and completely straight forward.

The Tree leaf colors look so beautiful and gracious! The Sunlight filtering through these leaves can give ideas for writing one or two poems. However we have to go for a Doctor's appointment today. Going for such doctor visits and Poetry/Writing are totally out of sync!! I just wonder what some famous authors would have done to describe such a situation. I believe now you would be having colder and wetter weather!

@RubyHawk At times if some clouds persist after the rains, an effect is created which in fact can raise the temperature.

Yes, we’ve had two solid days and nights of rain. It cleared a bit this evening and I went for an hours walk after being cooped up two days. All the beautiful colors are gone.

You can see behind the colorful tree that all the other leaves have fallen so that makes it really stand out.

@oahuwriter. Ohh, so you don’t have fall in Hawaii. Your leaves must gradually shed all year.

The pic of the tree is so beautiful, it looks like a painting. Glad you had a refreshing walk. I just came from outdoors as I went night strolling with my grandkids. The air is cool here too, but not many trees only business establishments and no safe sidewalk but we managed. At least, I've walked a little bit for my exercise. I need to do it every day.
