Fall came quickly here--temperatures dropped from 87 one week to 72 the next, and this week the rainy weather took us down into the mid-fifties. I must admit that, after last winter left us with frozen snow piles into the first week of may, the chilly weather has a cruel "too soon" feel.

Everything else around us seems ready for fall, though--leaves started to turn yellow as soon as the temperature changed and the squirrels have been busy collecting and burying acorns all around campus for the past two weeks. (Did you know that a squirrel can smell a buried acorn even through a foot of snow?)

I suppose I can get ready for fall, too--

Pumpkins. Apples. Cider Doughnuts.

Bright red and yellow trees.

And just the right amount of spooky.

I've decided to run with the Halloween theme--this month, it's all about...

Tune in on Tuesday for the next post in the Something Scary Series!
