It's Columbus Day, it's raining and we spent the weekend feeling the stiff transition from summer warmth to fall chill on Sunday. All around the colors are slowly fading into deep brown and maroons.
This is when coming indoors at the end of the day can almost put you in an ecstatic state. You are wet, tired and hungry, but as you step across your threshhold, you feel the warmth and the familiar smells of home. A shower, a change of clothes and a snack later and, as you sit in your favorite chair, it's all good again. (Photo via Darkmatter)
