It's finally here! "Second summer" aka, it's cool enough out to actually enjoy being outside again!
We had a huge temperature drop this weekend, it went from mid 80s to mid 60s overnight. Almost like the weather knew it was October. And the humidity seems to be completely gone :)
On Saturday my husband had to do some work, so I watched hours and hours of HGTV, and then worked on some Halloween projects. But Sunday we made the best of the weather, and went for a hike, after a quick trip to Costco.
We've only had the chance to check out a few local trails, since it's been too hot and humid for comfortable hiking, but I'm so glad we finally went to Umstead State Park. It's only about 10 miles from our house, and it was nice that there's no entrance fee (most state parks in California charged at least $5). We got to go on a lovely little hike, and even though we didn't see any animals, it was still great to get out and enjoy the crisp autumn air.
Now I just can't wait for the leaves to start turning colors. Our weekend trip out here last November was the only time I've ever experienced the east coast fall colors, and everyone kept saying how it wasn't a very colorful year.
I also can't wait to revive my Work From Home outfit series, now that it's time to break out all of my fall clothes. Boots, scarves and tights, here I come--well, once I reorganize all of the clothes in my closet! I'm back to needing motivation to look nice again; since I've been taking some Pure Barre classes in the evenings, I've slipped back into being lazy with getting dressed in just workout T-shirts and pants.
Has fall (or Second Summer) finally arrived where you live? Did you work on any Halloween crafts or decorations this weekend?
