Sunday Salon: A Pair of Moose!

Today was a beautiful sixty degree day. It was probably the last really warm day we will have up here in the North East until spring. So we went out for a walk in the woods. Guess what we saw?

Here they are, a pair of moose! Looked like a male and a female. They were HUGE! They just looked at us for a while, then went on their way. I was glad that I had the camera.

It rained very hard here last night, so the water was really running. Here's a stream we crossed. I love this season, everything outside is just beautiful!

So, I am a bit over halfway done with Life After Genius by M. Ann Jacoby. My review will be up on Wednesday, October 29 as part of the blog tour for Hachette Book Group (I'm hoping to have a giveaway, too, so be sure to check back on the 29th!).

Also on Wednesday the 29th I will be participating in a interview hosted by Hachette's amazing Miriam Parker. She will be interviewing Kathleen Kent, author of The Heretic's Daughter. The interview will be at 1:00 pm eastern time and you can listen here, live or at your convenience later. I'll be posting the interview here, too.

Hope you all had a wonderful late fall weekend!!

What great pictures! That is so cool - I've never lived anywhere cold enough for moose.

What a great photo! It must have been a real treat to see them along your walk.

I do wish it would rain down my way. It was 91F degrees today, can you believe it? The only sign of fall in Southern California right now are the chilly mornings.

I look forward to hearing the interview with Kathleen Kent. How exciting! I am looking forward to reading her book.

I hope you have a great week!

We have lived here for fourteen years and have only seen moose up close a couple of times. It was exciting and awe inspiring, you can't imagine how big they really are until they are up close.

I'm sending the rain vibes out to you in So Cal, I know you need it! I have family out there. :)

Nice pictures....I love fall. I tend to forget you all have moose (meese? ha) in the northeast, too. They were a nuisance up in Alaska. Don't you just love it when the weather starts to change (at least when you don't have to fly in it)?

That is so cool. I'm even farther north and the changing colours and wildlife are always wonderful to see.

Great Picture! I have never been so far up north to see a moose. It rained here in KY a couple days ago. I like fall as long as I don't have to be out in the cold.

About Me

My photo
New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
