it's one of those things...what happened to September? It is mostly a blur but I swear it was only 4 days. So it is October now. I made the first pot of soup of the season last night, a really wonderful creamy broccoli with sharp cheddar, warm rolls and a salad. It's boots and sweaters and today for the first time a rain coat and hat. There was lots of wind which is always nice and exciting. And baths! hot baths, more sleep. We are already talking about wanting a vacation somewhere warm. We thought Hawaii but it just doesn't fit in with things right now. These pictures I took on Saturday at the restaurant where we went out to dinner with LD's parents. A bottle of ketchup exploded all over my shirt and LD's mom thought it was quite possibly the funniest thing in this world. Me, I didn't laugh. I wish I could laugh at myself more though. I hope to decorate the house with Halloween decorations for Oliver this weekend.
