Unseasonably warm for All Hallows Eve Eve! Overcast and 70F, though I fear it may rain later.
Listening to a Hallowe'en-inspired classical playlist to get me in the mood for our Spooktacular Concert this afternoon.
Lovely classic fall day- cool, overcast and breezy, 45F.
We've been doing a week with no tennis ball chasing as Holly is still favoring one front leg just a bit. She is not happy about it, but she flings herself after a ball with such abandon that it's the only way to let her convalesce and not reinjure herself. And there are lots of smells and leaf piles to roll in at this time of year to keep her occupied otherwise :)
Sir Palamides comes to Joyous Garde.
Just a quick walk after getting back from Crisp's doctor's appointment in the Bronx- didn't get here at all yesterday, had to make do with a walk around the block after Crisp's dentist appointment!
Cooler and getting dark earlier, 49F.
King Mark is a treasonous bugger!
Cool, wet and blustery, 47F, very refreshing :)
A very successful Acolyte Festival at the Cathedral earlier, now a nice walk to blow away the cobwebs, then home to the wonderful smell of Jackie's stew bubbling away in the crock-pot.
Sir Alisander is made knight and charged with revenging his father's death.
A busy day at work, replacing windows and getting my usual Saturday work done so I can go to an acolyte festival at the Cathedral on Saturday morning. And tonight Jackie& Crisp are taking me out for a birthday dinner :)
A tad cooler and starting to get windy and overcast, 66F.
Listening to the World Service for the reaction to last night's appalling performance from Donald Fuckhead :(
Another pleasant day, mostly sunny and 63F, though the weather is supposed to get silly for the next few days- up around 80F!
Heard a review of a Beatles documentary on the way here, which reminded me of the Rutles, Eric Idle and Niel Innes' parody band from the 70s, so I'm listening to them :) I love Google Play Music!
Just got back from what seemed to be a quite successful college visit to SUNY Purchase. The campus and the college is really nice and diverse, and quite small (4,500 students) with a really nice spread of (mostly) arts and science courses- and of course it doesn't hurt that it would be quite cheap! And we found a course that seemed right up Crisp's alley- New Media- a cool blend of art and technology, photography, web, video, writing and more. Don't want to push her into it, but it really seems tailor made, we'll see if it goes anywhere...
Cool and sunny and very nice, 59F.
Listening to a Beatles playlist while I mull this morning over.
Overcast, cool and quite humid, 66F.
Listening to the BBC WS, they were discussing Trump's latest disgusting gaffe we drove here. It beggars the mind that anyone who is a woman, loves or knows someone who is a woman, has a daughter, or has a mother can continue to even consider him as anything more than dogshit. And while I applaud the Republicans who have disowned him, the fact that others are tiptoeing around trying to distance themselves from things like this while still endorsing him make me absolutely sick!
Another pretty fall day, sunny and 70F. But I an sad to report the death of Crisp's snake Bill. I don't think we did anything wrong, he ate just last week and seemed fine then, and the temp and humidity in his tank hasn't changed, just one of those things :(
Sir Tristram is banished from Cornwall.
