I felt restless yesterday.
I had a long list of things on my to-do list, things to do indoors in my office, but I couldn't seen to stay focused.
I used the excuse that I needed to make a quick run to the store to pick up some potatoes for the beef stew I was making for dinner, and run by and pick up our mail, to take my camera and find a bit of beauty on this rainy, fall day.
I took a quick little detour to one of my favorite spots before heading to the store and managed to squeeze in a few quick shots in between rain showers.
I was also hoping to find some fall foliage, or perhaps rose hips, for a little autumn cheer in my enamelware pitcher.
I didn't find any in the woods near the covered bridge, but found this unindentified plant with the little peach colored berries behind our private mailbox building.
Hope they don't mind me snitching a few small branches.
After I got home, I got the stew started, headed to my office and got a few things on my to-do list done, while it simmered.
The weather was crazy all day, alternating between heavy downpours and sun breaks.
About an hour before dinner, I was able to get a quick run in during one of the sun breaks.
Exercising outdoors is so much more enjoyable to me than indoors on the elliptical machine.
Then the downpour started again, but by that time we were seated cozily around the table, enjoying beef stew and cornbread with our oldest daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughters.
