I finished writing my research paper this morning. Yay! I just have to do some minor editing and then I'll be ready to hand it in.
Instead of cleaning the house, like we should have, we decided to go for another walk in the woods, this time at a different park.
You know what that means, don't you?
(wait for it... wait for it...)
Yes. Pictures. But first some stories.
We saw a woman feeding chickadees with a handful of peanuts. The kids were fascinated. She asked if they were allergic to peanuts and when I told her they weren't she gave them each their own handful of peanuts to feed to the chickadees.
I thought they'd have trouble standing still long enough for the chickadees to land on their hands, but I was wrong. The chickadees landed on their hands and my hand and hubby's and took peanuts. It was really cool.
As we were walking I kept noticing little purple flowers. They stood out against all the browns, greens, yellows and oranges. I wanted to take a picture, but I didn't see any near the edge of the trail. Finally, just as were almost at the end of our walk, I found some. I'm quite happy with how the pictures turned out.
I was once again happy with my fall day walking outfit. I wore my new scarf, which I think is just the right amount of punk.
And now... The pretty pictures from our walk:
which the kids found very exciting.

He warned we'd have to go to the 'haustiple' in the 'ambulance' if we did.
And, since it's Thanksgiving, I'll just go ahead and say that I'm thankful for all the stuff pictured in this post and all the other peachy keen stuff in my life. So, yeah, thanks!
And thanks to you for reading my blog, yo.
Kisses and hugs.
