Squirms is still crawling all over everything. I’m still working on that sweater (though I may take a break from it soon here).
I got the new iPhone 6 (the small one, with more storage and the gold color); it’s so much faster than my poor old iPhone 4 that will be traded in sometime soon. I’m finally starting to admit that fall is here. The leaves are just starting to turn on some trees, it’s cool in the morning, and we got instructed by daycare to ensure we send her in warm clothes (of which she has rather few, I realized, when I went to pull them out).
Someone had a book review on their blog for the Outlander series and I decided to try it out. It’s a bit of a silly premise (woman from the 1940s walks into a Stonehenge-like rock formation and winds up in 1740s Scotland) but I’m really enjoying it. The story is well-paced with action and humor. I’m only about halfway through so it’ll be a bit until I post a formal review.
I’m horrible at keeping in touch with people once they move away, which happens all the time in an area as transient as DC. This week I saw both Matt’s cousin, Alison, and our very good friends, Ben and Melissa, which really made me realize how little I actually keep them up to date on what’s going on with us. I need to learn to write more, call more, email more. It doesn’t have to be long, just a note or call or say “hey, I miss you.”
And here’s a silly selfie of Squirms and I from the new phone…still blurry because neither of us can sit still
