Almost Autumn...
Today's rainy weather is a sharp change from the gorgeous early-fall weather we've been enjoying here in Ithaca, even though fall hasn't arrived yet. (The autumnal equinox is in about five hours.) Seems like a good day not to venture outside for lunch.

Conveniently, I have some leftover "fall rolls" from yesterday's visit to Xeo's Cafe, having eaten just one of the three to avoid overeating. I'll probably down those, and pop over to Duffield Hall (which I can get to without going outside) for a small wrap or sandwich. Maybe they even have soup.

I'd love to go up to the Coal House Cafe for a bowl of their chicken soup, but even getting to my car in the rain seems not worth bothering. The weather will be clearing up for a nice weekend, which is fine by me.

I suspect the Coal House Cafe is cranky thta the shuttle does not stop in front of it every ten minutes with Maple closed.

No doubt. It's certainly bad timing! At least the city added "Coal House Cafe Open" signs to their grossly inadequate detour signage.

Inadequate?

Which explains why I have not noticed them.

I can't believe how much the leaves have changed since I was there just two weeks ago. This makes me really homesick.

That's not a current photo! I've seen just a handful of trees starting to turn.

WHEW. Let me know when it looks like that and I will drop by. :)

It's a beautiful day despite the rain.
