Autumn dawdling

Three-day weekend every weekend? I wish!

I didn't get as much done as I had hoped. We saw the Honk Fest at Davis Square (a street band extravaganza) and afterwards had cupcakes at a new bakery, Kickass Cupcakes. I'm glad they offered one vegan variety, but it wasn't as good as the $3 it cost. Recipes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World are much more yummy.

Took the dogs out for a long walk in Menotomy Park, a decent-sized wooded area that supposedly has a lake, although we didn't find that. It's gorgeous out, crispy fall weather that makes me crave potato soup, warm casseroles, hot apple cider, and toasty mittens.

The leaves haven't changed much yet; it's too dry. We're behind almost 4 inches in rain, including the showers we got yesterday. Not to mention the fact that's been like summer weather around here. The trees must be wondering. Or perhaps they knew well before we caught on ...

Another nice thing about having a three-day holiday weekend? A subsequent four-day work week!
