Rainy Friday

Here's that rain we were promised :) wet and 58F.

Sir Tristram and his lady drink the love potion.

Thursday, September 29, 2016


Cool and breezy, 64F, with a mostly grey sky but still no sign of the promised rain.

No audiobook today as I was catching up with Colin in NH :)

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

Soon to be wet Wednesday

Cool and overcast, 62F, and it's been looking like rain most of the afternoon (I spent the morning cleaning all the gutters at the church in anticipation), though none yet. Apparently it's going to rain most of the night and tomorrow- good thing, we really need it!

Sir Tristram gets smitten and then does some smiting of his own.

Tuesday, September 27, 2016


A tad more humid than yesterday, but still quite nice, 72F.

Sir Tramtrist runs afoul of his girlfriend's mother!

Monday, September 26, 2016


What a beautiful day! Late sun, a nice breeze and 70F. Today is the first time in ages we've done the long loop comfortably without being drenched in sweat at this point :)

Taking a break from King Arthur and listening to Tubular Bells- which I haven't heard in forever but was reminded of by The Exorcist on TV the other day :)

Sunday, September 25, 2016


Lovely fall day- sunny, a gentle breeze and 65F.

We survived the brunch and we're just out for a quick walk before heading over to celebrate Jody's birthday.

Skyping with mum and dad :)

Saturday afternoon

Back in the right part the woods; the construction barriers are still up but, as it's the weekend, I could park in the office building across the street's lot.

I've escaped from the craziness of the nursery school touch-a-truck fair for a little while, and it's s nice day- sunny and 70F.

No book today as I've been having a nice chat with my brother via Skype :)

Thursday, September 22, 2016


Quite a nice day, 82F but clear and pleasant.

Sir Gareth comes upon the castle of the Brown Knight and the 30 ladies- I'm assuming he will prevail as he's been smiting and running through pretty much everyone he's come across so far ;)

Wednesday, September 21, 2016


A little more sun today, and a tad less humid, but still warm, 83F.

News of Sir Gareth's exploits reach King Arthur.

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Torrid Tuesday

Warm and sticky again, 80F and still. I have to say- I'm ready to feel chilly and need to put a sweater on!

Sir Beaumains defeats the mighty Red Knight.

Monday, September 19, 2016


Cooler but still damp and humid, 71F.

The damasel with Sir Beaumains is a bit of a bitch!

Sunday, September 18, 2016


Overcast and sticky again, 76F.

Sir Lancelot saves Sir Meliot.

Saturday, September 17, 2016


Lots of families out in the woods today, and why not? it's a lovely day :)

Sunny with an occasional breeze and 74F. It's quite surprising how many leaves have already fallen, probably because it's been so dry.

Sir Lancelot and the knights with white shields.

Friday with the 7Dii

And another version of todays picture from the 7Dii, an HDR composite of 3 shots.

Friday off

Another lovely day, 71F and clear :)

No book today as I'm taking advantage of my day off to come out for a leisurely stroll with my camera to enjoy the peace and quiet after a fairly crazy week at work ;)

Thursday, September 15, 2016


Cooler and sunny, 71F.

Sir Gawain sneaks off for an adventure.

Wednesday, September 14, 2016


Kinda warn and sticky again, 86F. Humid and mostly cloudy but a bit of a breeze makes it more bearable.

Arthur goes to France.

Tuesday, September 13, 2016


Another nice day, 79F with a nice breeze.

An early walk today before Crisp has his laser face torture and then we have the staff/vestry BBQ for Susan.

Sir Marhouse and the giant.

Monday, September 12, 2016


A much pleasanter day, 76F, low humidity and a gentle breeze :)

The tale of Sir Pelias.

Sunday, September 11, 2016


A very successful farewell picnic this morning, but I am now shot!

It's a little cooler and quite a bit less humid, 79F.

A counterfeit Excalibur.

Saturday, September 10, 2016


Another crazy hot weekend, 86F but feels like 94F. It's going to be very uncomfortable in church tomorrow if it's crowded!

King Pelinor lacks a horse.

Friday, September 9, 2016


Still very hot (88F) and I fear it's not going to cool off much before the festivities this Sunday.

Arthur weds Guinevere and the white hart appears.

Thursday, September 8, 2016


I know I said today was going to be another day on the leash, but Holly looked at me so plaintively I couldn't not come to the woods. But just the short loop and no tennis ball.

Hot and sticky, sunny and 87F.

Balin has many adventures.

Tuesday, September 6, 2016


Cool and quite breezy, 77F, but getting more humid again. I guess this is all were going to get off the great storm that wasn't :)

More Arthurian legend... but I'll tell you something- Merlin is a bit of an ass. He loves to pop up and yell some knight "ooh, you shouldn't have done that, now 3 kingdoms will suffer for 12 years because of what you did". Douche. You couldn't have said that before?

Monday, September 5, 2016

Labor Day

Cool and overcast, 69F, but very little wind, though that's supposed to change.

Balin draws the sword.

Sunday, September 4, 2016


What a lovely day! 78F, low humidity, lots of sunshine, blue skies, and a gentle breeze :) what tropical storm?

Arthur journeys north to tackle the 11 kings.

Saturday, September 3, 2016

Calm before the storm?

Calm and overcast, 71F and not so humid. Well see what Hermine brings tomorrow...

I did pull the trigger on Le Morte D'Arthur, and we begin with Caxton's preface.

Friday, September 2, 2016


About the same as yesterday as we wait for the tropical storm to come up the coast, 78F.

Many wonderful responses to our announcement yesterday- feeling very supported :)

Still on music. I'm considering a reading of Le Morte d'Arthur, but not sure if I'm up for 37 hours of Arthurian legend ;)

It's a girl!

Didn't get here yesterday what with going to look at Robyn's house and all sorts of other things, but I dropped mum and dad at the airport early this morning and hopefully they had a good flight. The big reveal was today and so far we're blown away by all the incredibly positive reactions we're getting:)

Warm and a bit humid, but overcast, 75F.
