Wednesday lunchtime

It was so dark and dreary yesterday, so Holly and I came out at lunchtime today so we could see some daylight :)

Cooler, 49F, and breezy.

1st Sunday of Advent

It's crazy that I'm still walking the dog in a T-shirt, and she's still cooling off in her stream under the bridge. It's almost December and it's 59F!

Rather than fighting the crowds I'm walking the dog in a T-shirt :)

Warm enough to just be out in shirtsleeves, 54F, though most of the many people who are out today are bundled up much more :)

Sloppy, slippy Wednesday

45F and the rain has finally stopped (well, almost), but it's a muddy mess underfoot and the wet leaves don't make for the best traction ;)

Saturday stroll

Another nice day, 50F and sunny. More clouds than yesterday when we went to Ward Pound Ridge though.

I'm listening through the comedy CDs we got Crispy so I can be forewarned if there's anything close to the edge on them. Just finished the Demetri Martin which had a few curse words on it, but nothing too bad- was very funny though!

I love technology Sunday

Warmish with a light breeze, 57F.

Last night on the way home from Medieval Times the boys were watching The Princess Bride in the van and I mentioned to Jake that I didn't have the soundtrack album.

Today as I walked through the woods I remembered that conversation, so I pulled out my phone, opened the Amazon mp3 app, and 3 minutes and a few bucks later I'm listening to Mark Knopfler's lilting guitar- I love technology!

As an aside, I loved it the van last night when Crispy kept telling his friends, "in the book at this point it's different... " :)

Friday Hi-Res

I had my little Pentax with me in the woods today- so here's a hi-res version of today's picture. Check out my main blog for some more pics from our walk.

Fall Friday

Another great day for a walk!

Cooler, 46F, and windy- the wind is blowing down the remaining leaves, and every now and then creates little zephyrs that dance across the trail like mini tornadoes whipping up the leaves :)

Late Wednesday

Due to a combination of mis-communication with Crisp about picking him up after Robotics Club and a strange lack of cell phone reception in Rye today, I'm much later than I wanted to be and it's almost dark. Cool moon though and 58F.

Fabulous Friday

Lovely day in the woods!  50F and sunny.

Finally had time to bring my saw with me and do a little tree trimming- evenings this week have been a little hectic as we've had to get Crispy fed and out the door to get back to school for rehearsals. He's the only middle-schooler on the tech crew, and apparently they're so impressed with him they've given him the lead follow-spot!

I've trimmed back one fallen sapling, and now I'm going on to trim a couple of big fallen branches up the hill from the bridge:)
