pink beauty

We've had a bit of a cool front blow in today and it feels rather autumnal. Bearable, though, because the sun is shining and the sky is clear and beautifully blue.
I am renewing last year's pledge to not hate fall and winter. It is absurd to to have this dull level of unhappiness, due to the season, for nearly half the year. Honestly, out winters are not that long in Texas. I am an island girl, though so the dreariness is wearing.
Fall is dreadfully mournful, what with everything dying and the days getting shorter. Ah, crap! There I go again! I'm just not one of those people who takes great delight in wearing sweaters and (gasp!) coats and shuffling through heaps of dead leaves. Give me a sun-drenched Caribbean beach any day! Every day, actually.
Oh, dear... it is going to be a long winter... ;)
