Fall... forward

You know winter is right around the corner when
…everyone around you has on scarves and boots.
…the golden leaves of a few weeks ago have all fallen off.
…the heaters are all on.
…you drink coffee for the warmth not the flavor.

I still think like someone from the northern hemisphere (May = warm weather) and the days have been so sunny that I go outside in short sleeves and am surprised by how crisp the weather is. Despite our hemispherical vertigo, we've had a number of pleasant surprises lately:

A vist by Tom & Betsy Bloxham from Wichita, Ks.

Running into friends around town (remember this is a city of 13 million people, and we know about 30 of them)
Hanging out with the Youth Specialties office staff.

A visit by OC’s pastoral couple, Ralph and Joyce Anderson. We’ve known each other since 1994 and greatly value their friendship and wisdom (not to mention the gifts and excuse to be tourists around town).

If you're in the mood for seeing more pics of life where it's fall in May and eating beef is an inalienable right, we've got some up on (scroll to the bottom for the latest).
