Thankful for...

...a very enjoyable hike yesterday with a new friend. She's another parent at school, and although we've been friendly for a while (her daughter and E were in the same class last year -- and were very good friends), we've not done anything outside brief school chats.

Yesterday, however, we went for a nice hike. The weather was perfect (no surprise when this morning it's in the mid-30s -- we always get beautiful weather right before a cold front moves through), and the leaves were brilliant.

We hiked for about two hours and then got a bite to eat. Even though it put me way behind for work, it was worth it :) I was so tired last night (a combination of working after dinner, not nearly enough sleep the night before, and the long-ish hike) that I was asleep before eleven -- a school-night rarity for me.

Today, of course, being Thursday means that I can relax a bit and catch up on things. So I'm thankful for that, as well. I'll be in E's class this afternoon, and I have conferences with both teachers after school...

(And no, I didn't watch the debate last night -- I did, however, read through the 'fact check' this morning, which was probably the most important aspect, anyway, no?)

Happy Thursday! :)

Do you have the snow blower gassed up and ready to go to work?

Your hike sounds awesome!

We need to get our snow blower going -- though, it's not technically ours (it's my FIL's)...so he may want it back!

Beautiful! I'm glad you got to go. Fall is my favorite season--I wish it lasted longer around here (it was 75 two days ago, and right now it's 25).

We're in a similar boat -- high yesterday was mid-80s; today is low 40s. *sigh*

Well, we woke up to snow this morning (on the ground -- the sky is blue)...*sigh*

From the awesome pictures I can say the hike was totally worth it.

We had a wicked wind here, which swept away a lot of our color.

I really don't like it when that happens :(
