Fall

I'm seriously missing Fall right now. These are a few shots I took on the farm last month. It has been below freezing here for the past 2 weeks. We had snow on Monday and freezing rain on Wednesday but neither one was enough to earn a snow day.

I am really paranoid about walking in the snow this year after my major fall in January. Everyone keeps telling me to be careful which I am but I really wish that I could just stay inside, which unfortunately isn't an option. I can't hide from my fears for the whole Winter whenever there is any bad weather. The worst part is when I have to walk through the snow in my driveway. Getting out to scrap gives me a panic attack every time since that is when I fell last year and had to crawl through the snow with my fractures to get to my cell phone.

When the snow clears I am going to insist on getting the garage door replaced. I tried to convince Mike to do it this Spring when we were having the other work done on the house but he didn't want to spend the money then. This time I'm not going to take no for an answer since I don't think I can take the anxiety for the next 3 months of scraping.

I'm having a hard time getting excited about Christmas too. We will only be seeing the girls for around 24 hours which takes most of the fun out of it. I'm really looking forward to the week and a half off of work which I desperately need this year. I don't have much of anything planned which should be a nice chance to regroup.

Same here (in Chicago)! Fall is my favorite season by far, and we were robbed this year. :(

Those are gorgeous pictures. I don't blame you one bit for being paranoid about falling again. That would be awful to have to go through that all over again.

Your pictures are beautiful. I especially like the horse picture. I know what you mean about missing fall. Winter came so quickly that I didn't get all my flower beds cleaned up. It looks a mess.

I walk with tiny steps to make sure I don't fall. After 5 months on crutches, I don't want to ever break anything again!

Yea, I'd be having a panic attack too! Not that you really want to call it this, but maybe you can justify the splurge by calling it his Christmas present to you?
