Wears: Hanging on to Autumn
This weekend was rather lovely, as per usual. I live for the weekends these days, for the long mornings snuggled in bed and a few adventures around town. It's getting dark so early around here that there is little else I want to do but make dinner and curl up in bed with a book by the time Will gets home from work during the week. It means I've become quite the homebody lately. Although I don't mind a bit, weekends have been rather refreshing. Yesterday was Veterans Day, which means Will didn't have to work (thanks state jobs) and we got to spend the day together in this fall weather that seems to be hanging around more than usual. We went for a walk around Municipal Park in the afternoon, ate an early dinner at Mazzah (their falafel is the best!), and ran some errands. A perfect date day, I think.

Walking around Municipal Park was so lovely. There is a cool little nature center and walk there (the state fish and game headquarters is next to the park and they care for it) filled with birds and native plants and fish viewing areas. I realized it had been years since I had been down to that park and Will had never been. Sometimes I forget that he didn't grow up around here too. And then I feel guilty for not showing him Boise gems more often. I'm trying to be better about it. We decided, while out walking, that autumn has seemed extra long this year. In Boise, autumn always seems to be gone in the blink of an eye, with summer dragging out longer than wanted and then the cold hitting suddenly (and the leaves subsequently quickly dropping). But we're still getting fair weather and some leaves are still hanging on. I don't mind, but at the same time I'm really jonseing for a snowstorm.
