We are having the most colourful autumn I can ever remember having. The people in the know say it has to do with the late warm temps and the leaves holding onto their sugar longer. Maybe this is what it's like to have fall on the east coast? It is amazing-- even in the fog and rain. I hope we can take a drive this weekend and really get a good look. The boys hate to take drives.
- I wrote a piece for this month's NW Kids Magazine. If you're local and you're seeing a Dr. in the next few weeks, I'm guessing you'll run into one in the waiting room. (Two of Autumn's kids are on the cover)! Otherwise, you can read it here. We went to the dentist yesterday and someone was reading it when we walked in and I wanted to sink into the floor (there are pictures). That was before the three year-old's meltdown over the prize machine.
- Stephanie came over late this summer for an afternoon of cucumbers and brine. The results are in the most recent 3191 Quarterly. I love the Quarterly-- and my hand's cameo aside, this is a really beautiful issue. Thank you Stephanie and Maria!
- I just opened up the sweetest package from Eireann's shop. I have loved her calendar this last year and this time I ordered cards: these and these.
Thanks to my sister, Paul and I are going to a show tomorrow night! I'm very happy. They are the authors of the quilt, after all. And it's a sit down show, which suits old-lady-sunday-drive me just fine.
