You know, not like political corruption or starving children or serious stuff like that.
Ok, back to a lighter note, the week before we went to London:
It's getting colder outside and I find myself getting more domestic and hibernating (yes, I know that's not really meant to be used that way, but work with me here)! I've been baking, trying new recipes, making candles, and crafting again.
I love fall. Maybe it's because it's cooler and I feel more homebody-ish or maybe it's years of being in school and organizing my life around the academic year, but fall always feels like a time to change things up, settle into new routines, and enjoy the crisp air.
Check out what's happening in my backyard:
Yeah, I was totally digging the weird mist thing. It hasn't happened since, so I'm glad that I caught it!
I also am trying to take some time to document some world events that happen during the week every now and again. This week was Google 3D undersea.
And of course, our London trip:
Obviously you've seen the London photos but before our trip my coworker surprised us all with cookies. She's so sweet! And crafty. But not in an evil cunning kind of crafy.
More on the changing season too. I visited the river and enjoyed watching the frogs jump into the water. It's the little things people that make me happiest. Some might say "small pleasures for small minds" but I think that joy in the small pleasures is part of the secret of being happy in your life.
Otherwise, the rest of the weekly story was our return, our 3 year wedding anniversary, a death in the family (photo blurred out) and Paul finding out he had shingles. The return home was rough, but such is life.
