Albino Squirrel

This weekend held so many good things, I barely know where to begin. I'll give you some highlights now and post more pictures later.

*Friday afternoon, I spent the loveliest few minutes sitting on a bench outside U of L's music building. Rain pitter-pattered on my umbrella, acorn bits fell from trees and thumped the sidewalk, and piano music wafted out the open windows. It was a feast for my ears! On top of all of that, I got to watch this little lightning-fast albino squirrel run around. It was so hard to get a photo of him.

*On Friday night, K and I had the darkest drive to his hometown. The clouds hung low and fog laced itself through the trees and over the roadway. We saw such a cool sight--a train coming out of the darkness, its headlights beaming in all directions, long rays of light clearly visible in the dense fog. It was both beautiful and eerie.

*Saturday night K's parents made a fire in their new fire pit. We roasted marshmallows and made s'mores. The cool night air and the scent of the fire definitely felt like fall.

*On Sunday we celebrated K's birthday with his family. Happy birthday, K!
We ate lots (and lots and lots) of good food. K's mom always makes plenty of meat-free dishes so that I can eat big platefuls of food. So thoughtful!

*I got to see my sister for a brief moment as we passed by her college. It was long enough for a hug and a tour of her new dorm room.

It was such a wonderful, full weekend! I hope you had a lovely one, too.

  1. Roasting marshmallows..? Lots of vegetarian fare..? Sign me up!
    It is finally starting to feel like fall around here, too, and we got tons of rain - a downpour again - this weekend. I got caught in the rain as I was walking the dog and got soaked - and loved it. It was one of those letting-go moments and it was actually really great...
    Glad to hear you had a wonderful weekend.

  2. What cute squirrel. I've heard there is is a half albino baby fawn around here. I have yet to see it though.
    Glad to hear you had a lovely weekend. :)
