October and November are great months, two of my favorites. I love the snap in the air – sleeping with the windows open – and the wonderful smell of leaves. This past month has been busy, with driving to Goldsboro a couple of days, lots of time to Raleigh, and then, today, to Newton, NC.
It’s a three-hour drive to Catawba County from my home in Wake Forest. It was dark when I left, but as the sun rose, I was driving along the interstate and saw some really pretty foliage in the morning light. Wow, how pretty. Golds, reds, oranges on both sides of the road – and the scarlets were the best. The sky was Carolina Blue, the autumn hues were fabulous, and the temperature was moderate.
Not a bad day for a drive. Get out there!
