It's not just the crisp, chilly mornings, but everywhere I look - colors are changing. There are also numerous festivals going on in the area. Since it is the harvest season, people are out apple picking or pumpkin hunting. A few blocks from where I work, DC is celebrating the first Free Street Food Event, and I could already hear my coworkers rambling about going.
I am feeling festive today. The pressure is off as my company's last board meeting of the year concluded yesterday, and that I am looking forward to a long weekend. Three and a half to be exact since my office closes at 1 PM on Friday. I can finally breathe and just cruise through the end of the year.
This fall, I have so many things to look forward to:
- drive to the Shenandoah National Park and marvel at Virginia's fall foliage
apple pickingand eating apple fritters
- more time off from work - I've accumulated 140 vacation hours.
- November trip
- half days and holidays
- possibly spending New Year at home in Hawaii
- family birthdays
- work holiday luncheon
- holiday bonus
