I love this time of year. Last Tuesday was spent mostly in and around the woods that extend beyond the backyard of the house where I live. I tend to go exploring outdoors on my one week day off, and it's amazing how much the scenery has changed since the previous week. This is my first year living in this house, and now that the leaves are almost all down, the first time I can see so far into the woods beyond the stream at the back of the house. I am very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place.
