Lovely fall!

Yes, fall has arrived, it's definitely cooling off. I realize how much I've missed having the four seasons when we lived in Australia. Fall in Virginia is a gorgeous time of the year. I can't wait to pull out all my warm fuzzy sweaters and jackets. Today, when I went outside to spray paint at my day job as the sign shop artist for the Wegmans store in Gainesville I realized, yep fall is definitely here ... I can't forget to bring my gloves tomorrow. We have to go outside to spray paint the boards we use to make our signs for the store since some of them are 4 by 8 feet it's impossible to do it inside. I don't mind doing it outside, it gives me a break from being indoors, only thing I don't like about it is that my hands get numb having to push the button of the spray can when the temperatures are down. Last year when I started this job I figured a way to keep my hands from freezing and my fingers from getting numb. I bought a cheap pair of wool gloves and over them I put a pair of latex gloves on ... that way I don't get the paint all over the wool gloves and it keeps my hands extra toasty! Come to think of it ... now that I'm typing this I better go and grab them out of the cabinet and stick them in my bag to take them to work tomorrow.
