Iphone Photos From The Fall
We've had a gorgeous fall this year. I heard at the start of the season that we New Englanders might be disappointed by the foliage - there was a pretty horrible summer draught in our area and apparently that affects the leaves, but the predictors couldn't have been more wrong. The colors have been amazing and the leaves seem to be lasting longer than usual. I find myself taking photos on my phone constantly. Above is a photo that I took on my weekly walk with my great friend Kathy. We were in the Middlesex Fells. It doesn't show the fall colors, but it does match my mood this morning after the election. (Sad, depressed, confused, gray, foggy... you get the picture)
I was looking through my phone this morning for blog inspiration and I found the below photo taken from my Maine trip with Henry:
Pippa Middleton spends a good portion of her day looking at the windows and following the paths of the neighborhood squirrels and chipmunks.
This is the view from her favorite window right now:
It was a rough night for this liberal Democrat and feminist. And I woke up to a flat tire and a report from my credit monitoring service that someone had used my information to open a fraudulent credit card. I've spent the last couple of hours waiting for the tow truck, calling the service station, calling the credit bureaus, calling the bank that issued the card and reading the thousands of texts that my family has been sending back and forth about the election.
I sent the kids off to school with two thoughts: (1) work really hard at school, our future might depend on your generation (2) maybe we need to all do the Norwegian immersion camp this summer just in case we need to reverse-migrate back to the motherland.
