The Rain Brings Such Beauty

It was so beautiful this morning I can’t describe in words what I felt as I was driving to work. It had rained last night so the roads were wet and the air just had that clean feel and clear look to it that only comes after the rain has purified things. A lot of the trees on Whitewood actually lost their leaves and there was a plethora of colors in some places. In some spots entire bushes or yards were covered with the autumn colors of fallen leaves. The sun was peaking through the clouds and giving them an awesome backlight while at the same time it was clear skies to the west. I could have spent hours taking pictures, but was trying to make it to work on-time so there was no time to stop and take pictures. In retrospect, it would have been worth showing up late to enjoy it a bit more.

Things were kind of quiet, but pretty busy at the office today. I spent a few hours teching an amp that came in for repair which involved me finally installing Windows XP on my Dell laptop. I was able to get some more things cleaned up on my desk and my email is actually under control, so I’m pretty much looking forward to a long weekend. I may go in on Friday for a while just to get some single user mode things done.

I came home a bit earlier than normal, but later than i was expecting today. I spent some time working on my site and updated the theme for fall as well as finally got all the RSS feeds in for the blogroll. I just wish I could get it to sort on time updated, but maybe that will come in a future update of the plugin.

I grabbed some pizzas and took them over to the Rodriguez’s for dinner along with returning their tupperware from the other night. I went to a missionary correlation meeting which I think could be better arranged for a time before or after church on Sunday instead of pulling us all together on another night. I then went to our branch’s pie night at the Prosser’s. I enjoyed some pumpkin pie and talked with people for a while. I ended up at the Dowden’s until I felt I was going to fall asleep and my contacts really started to bother me.
