I love to walk around the neighborhood but I rarely do it. So this morning after I moved my car so the painters could work on the house, I realized it would be the perfect morning to take a walk.
I started walking in the direction of Winchester. I noticed my neighbor's shrubs were steaming and I stopped to take a photo. Not sure you can see the steam but it was there.
My sister and I have recently had conversations about being more present and more aware in our lives. So I took time to notice EVERYTHING! At first I thought I saw a white cat in this garden. Turns out there were 2 cat statues. Cute.
There's quite a party on the lawn of this house. Love the dancing skeletons. They were having a great time this morning.
So the meteorologist said we are not a peak color yet in the Boston area. It looks peak to me.
And my house, probably the last photo taken with the gold exterior. Soon to be Mayflower Red, Waterbury Cream trim and Clinton Brown accents. More on that later.
So what else did I see on my be present in your life walk? Not too much litter I am happy to say, just one soda bottle and one little nip glass bottle. One couch and a loveseat reclining outside someone's house. Another couch in front of a different house. One blind child sign, 2 women walking their dogs, 1 child walking her dog Oreo, a King Cavalier who had a wiggly butt and jumped excitedly all over me. Wet leaves stuck to car windshields and hoods. Very few cars on the road or people around at 8:45 on a Sunday morning. I saw Boston Marathon victim and survivor Marc Fucarile climbing the steps to his mother's home very gingerly. His child with him and an ice coffee in hand he was greeted warmly by his brother at the front door. Family time on a Sunday morning.
As for me, back home to my 3 kitties and some breakfast. All is well in my little neighborhood on this Sunday morning.
