the rainy gray days of autumn

It's been raining here on and off for the past four days. It's been fairly gray non-stop.

The leaves have begun their turn, but we haven't gotten to the brightest part of the leaf show yet. Not quite.

The squirrels are collecting all the acorns they can carry. And the rest are on the ground, waiting to be raked up, along with the leaves.

Some days, a pair of lavender rain boots is all that stands between you and the gray day.

Some days, that is enough.

Some days, that is more than enough.
