Still recovering from this cold/sinus thing. I ran yesterday, and so today I thought I'd get out and do a bit of trail running. Of course, running and temperatures above 80 don't agree much, so I didn't do as well as I'd hoped. I blame my recovery and the heat, but I did make it 2.5 miles, so yay.
The leaves are really changing, the fields are doing their final bursts of colors and flowers and seeds. I saw a garter snake slither out of my way as I ran by. I also saw a mother and baby sitting at an overlook near one of ponds. At least I think I saw them. I could have been hallucinating. It could have been me 3 years ago, with my newborn, sitting in the afternoon sun, looking over the fields and ponds. Maybe I just hit some weird parallel dimension thing where I was overlapping my previous time-line.... Or maybe I just watch too much star trek...
I spent a few minutes after my run walking around, cooling down, and catching my breath. (and maybe restoring some of my sanity)
I drove home the long way, listening to some Decemberists and Goldfrapp, and snapped a few pictures of the slow transformations happening in my garden and yard.
