Days 131- 148- Heather

It’s been quite a stretch since I’ve posted. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had the time to write. And that’s ok, because I’ve been spending the last few weeks enjoying the glorious weather. It is my favorite season and I wait 9 months for it come around again. I wish I lived in perpetual Fall.  I think there is no more splendid place to live than New England in autumn.

In the intervening days since my last post I :

  • went to Denver for a conference and am really grateful for that experience, it was incredibly rewarding
  • spent Columbus Day weekend with E and S visiting our fav places in the valley, made a pit stop at Frontier, went to the top of Sugarloaf, and we finished the weekend sitting on the sofa enjoying bowls of chili and cornbread, while watching comedy (though I didn’t find any of it funny, because I apparently have no sense of humor, or so I was told.  But I wholeheartedly agree.  I’m frakkin hilarious damnit!)
  • saw a bald eagle flying over the CT River
  • went on a few walks in the woods (into the woods, into the woods, yes I’m singing in my head)
  • roamed around Noho for Arts Night with my college BFF
  • had some Delhi papri chaat and I want more, always
  • worked on the farm shucking stalks of brussel sprouts. Let me tell you, it was 27 degrees on Saturday morning, so my hands were FREEZING!  But it turned into a beautiful day, so I….
  • spent the perfect Saturday with Z doing typical leaf-peeping activities: visiting a maple sugar shack, eating maple soft serve and some maple cotton candy, visiting the forever awesome Bookmill, and getting the best Mexican & margaritas around
  • saw the last morning glories of the season bloom
  • watched a swarm of ladybugs hover around the hummingbird feeder that has been abandoned til spring

Finally, I played with my dog and spent hours laughing at his antics. He joined our family 4 years ago this week. I love my dog!  I’m sharing a picture of Hunter and his cuteness from his first days with the family. Wasn’t he the cutest??! So damn cute!

Hunter- Cuttest Puppy in the World!

Day 15- Heather

I’m grateful for a half-day of work today, since I work most weekends during the summer.  Days off during the week allow me the opportunity to do some of my favorite things without having to fight the usual weekend crowds.  So today I’m going to see a movie (Snow White & the Huntsman), visit a cafe, fondle some fibers at a yarn store, and have tapas and drinks with friends.  I think it’s going to be a good day 🙂
