You wouldn't know it from the looks of today, where the high temperature MAYBE reached a wet and drizzly 40 degrees, but Thursday was a gloriously sunny and warm fall day. How often can you play at the playground in Washington in November??Some people aren't too fond of raking leaves, but I quite enjoy it. I think this was my 4th time this season raking our front yard, and the falling leaves have nearly reached the end. Who can resist playing in a big, crunchy pile of pure autumn?
