Poem for Wednesday, Limitless, Winterthur Tiffany

Our parking lot is STILL not finished! This is really not an inconvenience for me, since the weather was insanely gorgeous on Tuesday -- nearly 75 degrees and clear -- so walking to the car and walking home with bags from Giant and CVS was really not a hardship, but we have a number of people in the development with mobility issues for whom not being able to park near home has been a big problem (and we have not received mail for two days, meaning anyone needing pills etc. delivered has had problems too). I just figured we should make the best of it so we walked under the leaves and enjoyed only hearing crickets, not cars.

Otherwise it was not an eventful day. I had to fold laundry, so we caught up on Thursday's Heroes Reborn, which I am enjoying, and Blindspot, which should be letting the women interact more instead of being all about their feeeeelings. It was a great TV evening, though, with Agents of SHIELD really surprising me with a twist for the first time since the first season, and Limitless, which finally achieved real greatness with a Ferris Bueller-themed episode that made utter sense and was hilarious even as really serious shit was going down. Well done! Here is some of the glory of the Tiffany Studios exhibit at Winterthur:

Poem for Thursday and Longwood Nightscape

November seems to be a bit confused, as we had temperatures in the mid-70s which are supposed to continue through Friday and beautiful clear skies to show off the leaves until evening, when we got some rain after dark. So it was a really nice day to walk, which is good because finally we're allowed to park our vehicles back in our parking lot, so after we walked all over the neighborhood to see the trees, we walked out of the neighborhood to retrieve the car and van, with crickets serenading us the whole way.

It was otherwise an uneventful day. I did the big summer-winter clothes shift, tried on a bunch of old sweaters, pulled out a whole bunch of things to donate, and discovered that the '80s Gap cardigan that I inherited from my sister a few decades ago is right back in style. We caught up on Once Upon a Time and watched this week's Arrow which I'm mostly keeping up with in case of Flash crossovers.
