Fall is definitely alive in the prairie! The change in fall foliage has been sort of slow but this week the bright colors started making their appearance in all their splendor and what a show it is putting! On Saturday, the Missouri park service had a small fall festival at the Weston Bend State Park and it was the perfect day for it. The weather was gorgeous and perfect for leaf peeping and a hike. The foliage has not reached its peak but it will the next week or two. It is going to be gorgeous.
I took Jack with me and he had a great time with all the new sights and smells. But at the end he was pooped out from all the exercise and all the fun. Plus the day before we went to the doggie part and he was probably tired of that. This weekend was also perfect for running.
On Saturday I ran a 5K in honor of my boss. This year was the second Running with Roy 5K/10K at Texas A&M. So I did a 5K where I live to show my support. Yes, my t-shirt is from last year but mine didn't arrive in time. Still it was a good day to reminisce on the events of the day he was taken from us and to feel blessed for all the things I learned from him. A very bittersweet morning.
The rest of Saturday and Sunday was spent watching the History Channel series "The Men Who Built America" (nothing like learning about the robber barons. Thank you Lena from A Crimson Kiss for the recommendation) and trying some new recipes that are to come soon. And on Sunday evening I relaxed at home with Jack catching up on Revenge (I'm so addicted to this show). In all a very lovely weekend that left me feeling recharged and ready for this week. How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
