Blogging & Brrr…

Tuesday, October 17th, 2006 · No Comments

When I walked into the Saratoga Steeplechasers meeting last night, I was greeted by Elisa and Matt with enthusiastic cheers and praise that I had finally blogged again after having that stupid gabeanderson wannabe Google logo on my blog for nearly two weeks. Just a few days before, Jen and Sarah had both told me the same thing — “When the hell are you going to blog again?? I’m tired of that damn logo!”

So first of all, I apologize, dear readers, for my terrible dry period. For the four of you who gave me a hard time for slacking and such a great welcome back to blogging, there are probably others of you who feel that way but didn’t say anything. I will try my best not to let you down again. Seriously, though, it is a really good feeling to know I have so many wonderful friends who care enough about what I write and post to check my blog so eagerly. That gives me the warm fuzzies.

And speaking of warm fuzzies, fall is suddenly here! The treemometer has dipped to the high 30s and low 40s in the mornings lately, and the transition to winter mode has begun. (I’m fighting off a sore throat with regular intake of Vitamin C and Echinacea, the immunity-boosting herb that Nana swore by.) Last night we hauled the upstairs bedroom air conditioners down to the basement. On October 6, just before I left for SF, we turned on the heater for the first time of the season (annual cleaning/service scheduled for Thursday). This morning I brought up from the basement two storage bins of winter/ski stuff. And I wore a scarf (and gloves) to walk the dogs this morning.

The beautiful leaves are changing colors and falling. When I got home from SF last week, I was shocked to see the huge snowbank-like piles of leaves lining our street. Here are some pictures from outside my house on October 4:
