The autumn has been reigning for almost a month now. The weather is mostly rainy and windy, and the days are grey and wet. The sun rarely gazes out from behind the clouds, and if it does, then only for a moment.
However, last Saturday I managed to catch some sunshine! I woke up to a surprisingly beautiful autumn morning. The lovely weather tempted me to go for a walk. I spent a few hours admiring the ever changing scenery and breathing in fresh frosty air into my lungs. At one point I even regretted not taking my hat with me. But my black and white plaid coat kept me warm.
When the sun is up in the sky I try not to think about the oncoming winter and forget that October days are so short. After all, autumn and winter will not last forever. In five months’ time there will be spring again! Each season has its own merits. So I am going to enjoy each sunny day and charge my optimism batteries.
