I was parked on the UBC campus waiting for David one afternoon,
when I hopped out of the car to take these:
And then I ran across the street to take these:
I thought the red berries looked cool against the white painted wall...
We were out for a walk through our Kitsilano neighborhood when I couldn't resist stopping to capture this beautiful red tree against the clear blue sky:
Walking along the Seaside Bike Path, I noticed the lovely foliage on the Yaletown side of False Creek:
Coming home from the gym and these fiery leaves caught my eye...
Here's a clear shot of the mountains that were totally covered by fog in my last fall post:
And while I've got you here and we're all chit-chatting about fall, it seem like a fabulous time to give you a little update about how I'm doing on my Fall To-Do List!
Let's start off with the BEST news:
|. nailed it .|
Yes, I'm finally the proud owner of The Nightmare Before Christmas and I gotta tell ya - life is pretty great over on this side.
You see those little gourds?? SOMEONE'S SPORTING A NEW PAINT JOB. Yup, I painted a pumpkin, so I can successfully cross that off my to-do list! I even found another random tiny gourd to paint, as a bonus.
The other item that I've been able to scratch off the list is going through my clothes to pull out some items to donate. There's probably a Round 2 in my future, but I have gone through all of my shirts and jeans and have pulled out a handful of things that really don't need to be in my closet anymore. The number of items that ended up in the "to go" pile was pretty disappointing though, in terms of what I'd expected to get rid of. That's why I say there'll probably be another round - but this was a good start!
So that's 3 of my 6 goals done. I still have to:
- Buy new rain- and fashion-friendly boots
- Go to an apple orchard/hayride
- Attend a Halloween party <~ Possibly too late for this one?
Did you make a fall to-do list this season? What's the best thing you've gotten done in the last month or so? And would you like to come over for a Nightmare Before Christmas viewing party? BYOP (popcorn, obvi)!!
