See my partner in crime(fighting), Batman.
The Dating Game

Welcome to our next installment of The Dating Game.

I went on a date last night! A very nice date! I was starting to think there were not any nice men left!! We went for coffee, kept it nice and simple, and chatted for two and a half hours straight. I'm taking that as a good sign since he can obviously hold an intelligent conversation and keep my curiousity piqued. And he's cute, as well!!

We're going to do dinner and a movie on Saturday...

Stay tuned for the next episode of The Dating Game!

Castle Craig (at Hubbard Park)

Isn't it PURTY???? Stacey, Michele and I went hiking there a couple of weeks ago.

I can't wait to see it again when the leaves change. :-)

Our next hiking (and camping!) adventure will be New Hampshire in October. That'll be awesome.

I am a Leaf

(no, really! read my jaunty little poem...LOL)

Autumn’s days draw short and cool
and I yearn for the freedom to flee,
from way up above the swirling mass
of vibrant colors in my tree.

I stretch my limbs and twist my hips
and prepare for my descent,
and uncurl fingers from a reaching branch,
Then, down, down I went.

A fall breeze, a comforting hand,
reaches down to break my fall,
and gently floating on the spicy current,
Finally, now I can see it all.

Golden sunlight rains down upon asphalt
pigmented by messy piles of red, orange and brown,
my family, my friends all tumbled in a heap,
a cacophony of color blanketing the ground.

As the day draws to a sleepy close,
twilight delicately unfurls it’s cloak of gray,
I land softly amidst the smatter of color,
the end of my busy day.

I am a Leaf.
