On Friday evenings I like to start the weekend with a brisk and vigorous walk throughout the neighborhood, its my way of ending a hectic work week and clearing my mind of thoughts of work I do not want to deal with until Monday. As I walked I noticed the crunch of a few leaves under foot, which have begun falling from the trees. The air was extremely cool with absolutely no humidity so, I was wrapped warmly in a sweatshirt for the first few miles of my journey. Walking pass a few homes I could smell steaks cooking on grills, as well the scent of wood from fireplaces permeating the air. The sounds of the marching band from the local high school wafted through the air as the first football game of the season kicked off. The sky was filled with stars and deer were darting through lawns in search of edible foliage. And as I walked towards home I noticed signs of seasonal change taking place around Heath, and that fall is only moments away.
Get out under the sky and take notice!

Sounds like an invigorating stroll on an early fall evening that can only portend the changes that are transpiring. Days are getting shorter and the evening temps are super comfortable. Releasing stress and maintaining healthy habits simultaneously is an unbeatable duo. Now I’m fired up to get out and enjoy these goodies. Thanx for the reminder.
I am pleased that you have been inspired to get out and enjoy the cooler temps and crisper air. It is truly invigorating!!!!
Hello StylishHeath, what an appropriate title for your latest blog. I too look forward to seeing the changes of the seasons, notwithstanding, being able to walk throughout my neighborhood as well. I’m an avid walker myself. Fall is my favorite time of the year. The colors and smell of the leaves while being cut up with a lawn mower along with the firewood burning is fall to me. I love your post. Nice work………
I am pleased to know you are an avid walker and thank you for sharing your fall favorites. I cannot wait for the colorful change of leaves as well.
