Saturday was a treasure:

     About two hours to get there, and two hours back, but my three hours of rambling around Banning State Park were delicious. I LOVE my new camera--the zoom let me get shots of a garter snake, chipmunks, and part of a fisher who were far from fearless. And the fall colors were splendid in places--the drive up was a treat just for the ogling. I've uploaded a bunch of photos here for those interested. The more grateful because Sunday was wet, rainy, and clammy.

     Sunday was amusing in the wry sense of the word. I'd wanted to make much more progress on chapter 27 than I did...when I got myself set for a morning writing session was when my computer told me it was time for its once-every-three-months defrag (I seem to recall this happening the last time!) Then...early in the afternoon I suddenly started a running nose and that coming-down-sick feeling, so lost some time just taking a nap in hopes of warding it off. Despite those hurdles, I am grateful that I *did* make some writing progress, and that I got a lot more done this weekend in terms of boring catch-up tasks than I could have hoped for, considering I got essentially nothing accomplished Saturday. Hurrah for progress!

The chipmunk was so cute! All of the pictures were spectacular. It looks like you're having a gorgeous Autumn. It's enough to make me miss the season, though I am enjoying Spring very much.

Sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, though I'm impressed you're still managing to get your writing done. I hope you feel better soon *hugs*

It's still gearing up down where I live, but it looks like it's going to be spectacular. Spring and autumn are both such precious seasons.

I've been doing the nose-as-leaky-faucet impersonation for the last 8 hours, but at least I got more writing done. Also happy that my cat Arun doesn't care what I look like/feel like, he still wants to cuddle anyway. ;)

Thanks for looking, and I'm glad you enjoyed them!

So enjoyed the pictures. Made me very homesick for MN state parks.
I sure miss them especially in the fall and spring. The fall colors look lovely.

Hope you are feeling better from your cold. Thanks for posting the pics.

They're lovely, aren't they? It was a very nice outing.

The cold is still hanging around but not bad. I'm grateful I haven't started coughing (yet).

Thanks for finally getting over.
