autumn, etc.

Today was beautiful. It was sunny, and it was autumn. The trees were gorgeous around home, which is where I spent several hours, doing laundry and the like.

I guess I'll wait until tomorrow to really dive in. And johnmeier1 bought a Nintendo Gamecube used and a copy of Animal Crossing last week, so I have that to occupy all spare time, too, besides finishing up that quilt I'm making in time for gift giving...
