Good day, everybody!
It's a cool, chilly, but colorful Saturday in Hampton Roads. How's it in your area, my dear folks and friends? How's the Fall season treating you so far? Has your (centralized) heater been turned on already? That's good. I turned ours on at home the other day, you know. And I'm comfy now, at home, and grateful to God that it's functioning efficiently and effectively. I'm thankful to Chris of Chesapeake for replacing the old and installing a new one a year, or two ago, I think? (Expect to have a surge in our Columbia gas bill next month and beyond.)
This cool Saturday morning, we (my wife Freny and daughter Tintin and I) drove to the neighboring city of Chesapeake. Why? We could have stayed home and slept some more for it's weekend. But, we have to wake up early and drive Tintin to her testing center. She's scheduled today to take her GRE for graduate school, her plan next year, after two-year stint as a college adviser. Wishing her all the best!
Noticeably, while on the road to Great Bridge/Battlefield Blvd., on to Independence and Volvo Prkwy. of Chesapeake, we've witnessed the dramatic sunrise! S glad and thankful that I captured it. (See the photos below.) We even saw thin frost, and mist, on the ground, indicative of early winter, huh?
Anyway, it's FALL of colors, or colorful in Chesapeake, like other cities around, anticipating the forthcoming observance of Halloween this coming Thursday and, of course, Christmas in December. As we all know, plenty of bright colors abound during the season. Here and there, we have golden yellow, bright red, blue, orange, green, brown to name a few. Pumpkins, mums, pansies are abundant and pleasing to the eyes while leaves of trees are falling and changing their colors now. Evidently, the sights and sounds of Christmas are now in stores, not only in Chesapeake but elsewhere...
Check these photos I've taken today while in Chesapeake. Aren't they cool and colorful? (Btw, some of the pictures were taken in one of the home improvement stores there...
Well, I have more photos coming up to share with you in my next post. So, my dear folks and friends, stay tuned. Bye for now...chris a. quilpa, 10.26.2013
