Autumn Is In The Air...

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
Goodbye summer...hello Autumn...

One of the many things we enjoy while living in Chicago is the ability to walk to 
just about everywhere and to everything we want.  We are centrally located
 so it's only a matter of stepping out of our building and just going.
Something we do not usually do when we are in Florida.  

A favorite of ours every week is the fresh market.  Every week Arvid and I go for fresh
 baked bread and fresh vegetables.  Being Arvid, he is fussy about his bread.  No store 
bought bread for this man.  Claims that it's too soft.  Has no texture as he puts it.

It feels like the cool weather is about to make its appearance.  I am happy about that.
 Tired of the hot temperatures and hope to experience even a little of the cool down before
 going back to Florida.  Summer here in Chicago has lasted long this year.  Everyone
 seems very surprised (pleasantly) at how warm the temperatures have been.

We have been enjoying the days.  Doing a little of this and a little of that.
Making most of the gorgeous weather.  Arvid had a little run in with the geese.
 He started feeding them and before you knew it they were hissing and trying to bite us.

He had to really run from them.  That left me in the middle with them
taking pictures.  Boy they sure got aggressive fast once the food was done.
Looking forward to feeding them soon again.  I like the challenge.

The day has started out a little on the cooler side.  Love it.  Looks very much like
 fall right now.  For the days we have left, I am looking to enjoy cooler temperatures.

Autumn paints in colors that summer has never seen...
