The sun shone warmly and the skies were blue all weekend long — through yesterday. Today looks a bit more gray. The weekend was perfect to get the car washed, hit a local farm to watch kids run through pumpkin patches and take hay rides, and to buy some apples for delicious apple cake. It was a perfect day for a walk with the dogs in the state park. Though a bit chilly Saturday night, the bonfire at Seth and Niki’s lake house kept us warm into the night.

Last night we had Ken and Rachel over for some We Love Katamari, the sequel to the addictive PS2 game that involves rolling things up. Sounds strange, I know, but it’s fun, though, admittedly, I haven’t become quite as hooked on it as Jen and others have. The psychological appeal the game has is unique: One of consumption and the need to accumulate stuff, I suggested. No, said Jen and Rachel, one of order. Do we feel a need for things to be in order? I know I can only take so much mess on my desk or in my house before it begins to stress me out. Chi.

My heart goes out to all the families of those killed in the boat accident on Lake George Sunday. What a terrible and sad event. Lake George isn’t far from here, but those killed were far from their homes in Michigan. On a crystal-clear day, something like this should have been prevented, but apparently the boat was without a required crew member and prone to not being very balanced.

Bush has nominated Harriet E. Miers as his pick for Supreme Court justice. Funny that 41 of the 109 people to serve on the Supreme Court had no prior judging experience. Maybe I should run for president in 2008. I’ve never held political office, aside from chairing a local alumnae/i club. Does that qualify me?

    Try hanging around horsey people. Can you get in with the Arabian horse people? That’ll qualify you to run, say, FEMA.
