Flowers, Fruit, Fall and Fitness


Hello! Happy Fall to you!

Gosh, I can't believe it's October already! Time sure flies, doesn't it? That thought ran through my mind the other day as I was looking through pictures on the computer and saw these shots that I took last APRIL! I have a tendency to do that...take photos and then forget about them. At any rate, I thought the colors and subjects worked well for autumn too, so here they are.


I love the color of these flowers. They kind of make me think of the pretty salmon-colored leaves that are found on some of the maple trees this time of year. Apparently, they're a variety of ranunculus. Aren't they different?


Pears always make me think of fall too, since that's when they're in season. I've been wanting to make a pear tart. I keep thinking about it. You know, when you get an idea in your head and you can't shake it loose? I've been trying to cut gluten and sugar out of my diet though, so that eliminates the possibility of tart eating. Things have been going pretty good, except for the day I ate a doughnut or two...okay, three :)


Since I've decided to put more emphasis on my health, I also signed up for an intense ten week exercise class. It starts on Saturday. That first day they'll test us with a timed run and whatnot. The worst of it will be though, horror of all horrors...before photos. Ugh. Wish me luck, people :)

Well, anyway, that's what's going on in my world.  Hope you're having a good week!
