little review

Poem for Monday

Had a relatively quiet Sunday. I enjoyed The New York Times, particularly the editorial endorsement of Kerry, Dowd on theocratic hypocrisy and Friedman on why we need a new administration. Our original plan for the day was to go to the Renaissance Festival again, but I'm still fighting a cold, plus both kids had homework and friends they wanted to play with. Given the late start because of Hebrew school and the expense of getting into the festival, we decided to wait until next weekend. (sparowe, you and I still have a date!)

While the kids were out with their friends, apaulled and I went back to Great Falls, where we walked the towpath further than our children usually permit...down to where the smooth path ends and one has to climb over the rocks. It was a perfect autumn day, no mud despite the rain yesterday, ideal high 50s/low 60s temperatures, everything smelled good, and since we were not on a schedule and had no children either rushing or dragging, we took our time. Then we came home, retrieved the kids and helped with some school projects. After dinner we half-watched Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country -- my least favorite of the Trek films and I own it on video, but we stuck it on UPN since it was there -- which sadly ought to reveal my priorities where Farscape is concerned. Now we are waiting to see if Boston manages to blow it yet again. Comments returned tomorrow, I lost tonight to trying to organize my photos on my web site and writing for fun!
