In contrast to today’s chill, yesterday was one of the perfect mid-autumn days. Not too warm, with a nice breeze and mostly clear skies. The leaves are just starting to turn orange in places, and a nice carpeting of crunchy fallen leaves covers almost every path. To celebrate, Seán and I went out for Starbucks and settled down in the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow to read and hang out.
I’m partial to Pumpkin Spice Lattes and almonds.
Dweeb got a hot chocolate with pumpkin spice syrup, but sadly had to suffer the indignity of having his name spelled Shawn.
We settled down under this tree.
After a while the sun began to sink lower in the afternoon sky so we walked through the gardens on our way home. On the way:
It was really nice to get out and enjoy these brief autumn days. If what I’ve heard is true, they’ll soon be replaced by cloudy days and daily rain. Sigh.
