Minnesota Fall

Something is happening right now that always makes me stop and take a second look. It is Fall. Minnesota could NOT be more wonderful than a great October day. Playing tennis, walking the dogs, or sitting by the fire pit is so enjoyable. The kids are begging for Honeycrisp apples instead of junk food...and pumpkin sneaks it's way into recipes.

For us, the Minnesota Fall is way too short. We think back on the Halloween Blizzard of 1991
We were first married and living in an apartment. One day it was leaves and the next day we had to dig our car out of snow drifts...and all we had at the time was a BBQ spatula that was a wedding gift. Why would two college students have a shovel? Too funny.

So let the laundry pile up....I am going out there to enjoy. Before you know it, I will look like Nanook of the North in my coat and boots scraping the frost off my windshield.

*Doggie blog break ...just for today....there will be plenty of 15 below wind chill days to blog*
