It's Fall! My favorite time of year and Columbus Day Weekend is the traditional leaf-peeping weekend here in the northeast. We could not have asked for a nicer day today, in the mid sixties and sunny with clear blue skies. Perfect.
So, while I am smack in the middle of Joseph Teller's courtroom drama, The Tenth Case (which I am liking very much, by the way) we took a two hour walk in the woods to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.
We saw lots of wildlife! A bunch of chickadees and chipmunks, two blue jays, a beaver who slapped his tail at us, a gray squirrel, Canada geese and, best of all, some teensy little frogs who were about the size of my thumb nail. They were tan with mottled brown spots and were almost completely camouflaged by the fallen leaves.
All in all, a fantastic day. I took this picture so you can see the colors. We might go on another walk tomorrow, it is supposed to be another lovely autumn day. Well, since it is dark now, back to reading!

- 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.
