Ten on Tuesday.

1. We woke up to 33 degrees this morning. All of a sudden. Things I'd forgotten: Where is my ice scraper? At what outside temperature do we turn on the heat?

2. Fisher had to be convinced that pants were really going to be a better idea than shorts. As much as he laments the end of shorts weather, he still told me he can't wait for Thanksgiving, because of the turkey and the biscuits. But the biscuits are the best, he said. And then he went on, And I think you make scones or something for breakfast? It really is all about the food.

3. He asked me last night, if I had to give up either coffee or salad, which would it be? WHAT KIND OF APOCALYPSE ARE YOU IMAGINING, DEVIL CHILD?! Alas, I chose giving up coffee. I figured I could find another, lesser, source of morning goodness (caffeine), but that, as he said, I needed my greens. Both kids hoped that it would never come to this, because I'd be one cranky mommy. True dat.

4. It might've been 33 this morning, but it is so so green still (and yellow and red and orange, too), and our own maple hasn't even begun to change. Also, I'm still killing mosquitoes. And fruit flies. Or does that not have anything to do with weather?

5. What is Alla up to? Well, she's a tween, of course, but she's also just Alla, so things like this: (I don't know.)

6. Kids and I are reading Wonder, again, because of the movie. This is my third time through, second with them. There are things I'd forgotten, and also its lessons of kindness are not lost this second time they are hearing it. It still inspires.

7. For myself I am in the middle of a gut-wrenching memoir, Some Bright Morning, I'll Fly Away.

8. It's October, so we are firmly in the routine of school again, summer feeling ever further away each early morning. Already I am wondering how to shake up the breakfast menu. We seem to be stuck on oatmeal, toast, bagels, and yogurt.

9. It's October 10th, so I am wondering where in the heck that box of Halloween decorations has hidden itself?

10. Ooh, let's play a game of What's On My Camera, since I've just been too darn busy to upload and edit pictures on a regular basis. Here's what I found today, Fisher and I heading out for his half birthday date a couple weeks ago - Red Robin and bowling :)
