Random thoughts ...
Many leaves falling and lining the streets. Wet on stone and brick bring out the richness in colour. Gets dark so early these days; even more so with overcast skies. Lights in shop windows are welcoming. To get: something warm to drink. The aroma of coffee, overheard voices laughing through opening and closing doors.
Look at those hardy flowers holding on; blooming away despite the cold, wind, darkness. Pumpkins add a bright and cheery touch, even in their 'yet-to-be-carved' state.
Wrapping up in a warm coat. Red is a popular colour. Wearing wool and fleece: toques, mitts, scarves. No vanity in covering heads in these temperatures -- ears get cold fast. A few leaves holding on here and there, despite the wind.
