Autumn is here . . . sort of.

Well, autumn is definitely trying to show her face here in eastern Iowa. We've been getting some nice, chilly temps at night. And for the most part, we've been getting comfortable temps during the day. Well, some days have had comfortable temps, but other days? They seem more like early summer, with temps in the upper 70s and low 80s.

Nevertheless, I won't complain, because true autumn-like temps will be here every day, soon enough. And I can't wait!

In the meantime, I've been enjoying the fall foliage, what we've been getting of it, so far. Okay, so it's not what we'd see in Boston and the rest of the Northeast, but the colors are still stunning.

Check it out: 

Okay, so not all the trees have started changing. Take the one below, for example. It's still green. It's dropping a lot of acorns, though, and Liv would LOVE to catch one. However, they basically just go plunk somewhere near her (and once in a while, one will go plunk on her head!).

Here she is, waiting to see if an acorn will drop, so she can try and catch it.
