This gorgeous tree lives in my front yard.
Most of the time, it goes unnoticed.
It's just one of several I pass
on my way out of the driveway every day.
Once a year, though, this tree gets all dolled up.
She puts on quite the show for about a week.
These were taken at her peak Saturday morning.
As of Sunday, the leaves were already starting to drop.
Now Daughter will be flung head first into basketball, which means the time I spend on the road will quadruple, once the games start up.
My car currently has 195,000 miles on it and is absolutely begging me to retire from the daily trips to Williamsburg and beyond. As soon as I identify a logical, affordable replacement, the old Saturn Vue will be bequeathed to Daughter, who gets her license in December. The Saturn won't mind shuffling Daughter to and from high school. Not one bit.
It's hard to believe next week is Thanksgiving--which means December really isn't that far off.
Time continues to fly by in spite of all my requests that it not.
